    Just plenty of love will do the job. Take it slowly, and give her plenty of space. She will be confused and maybe a little frightened too. Try giving her some grilled chicken by hand. It'll help the bonding process.

    I have a 5B too :)

    I think that if she is very thin and just had kittens you could give her kitten food to build her up. Only for a month or so then gradually revert to normal cat food.

    If she is very nervous you might want to try a feliway diffuser for a month or too - may or may not make a difference. Did for my cat, but he is in a multi cat household.

    Otherwise go gently, lots of ltc. Cardboard boxes scattered around might help too because they are a hidey hole and also can be played in (and they are cheap). Try a Primark large paper carrier too.

    Jut give her time and she will get used to you, I adopted a brain damaged cat from the RSPCA and she was really skitzy at first but now, 3months on shes all over me and shes my baby and she knows it! I spoil her rotten with treats like king prawns and chicken, she likes the odd digestive too! She will get used to you, you cant force it but soon she will not let you go to the loo in peace! xx
