Raven was a timid, hungry feral rescue when I adopted her 2 years ago (1st pic) and she’s *terrified* of people. Every time someone visits or so much as knocks on the door, Raven hides under my bed for hours at a time.
Yesterday I had some friends over, and lil Raven not only came out from under the bed willingly, she let them give her scritches!!
This doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a HUGE deal to me. It’s the result of 2 years of trial/error easing Raven’s anxious nature, navigating her mystery traumas from the year she spent on the streets, and teaching her to trust people again. She’s come such a long way and is getting so brave, I’m proud of her 😭 ♥️
