Inari, the antisocial shorthair

Inari (ee-nahr-ee) is a shorthair tabby. She was found at 6 weeks old abandoned in the engine of a mack truck trying to keep warm. We rescued her and it has been very obvious that she suffered some trauma as a young kitten. She is not extremely social with people, she doesn't bite or scratch, but she'll run away if possible. Only late at night, when my kids are both asleep, will she occasionally approach me for some petting. She does, however, LOVE my other cats. She is always playing, grooming, and sleeping with another cat. She is very clean and dainty, but also feisty. During her time as an indoor/outdoor cat, she caught birds bigger than herself and very much enjoyed the hunt. She is now content as an indoor house cat, and though she doesn't cuddle much with us, she will always come out to play with ribbons, bubbles, or cat toys.
