My cat "Scout" moved. She had always been a mean cat but when my friends daughter moved in they got along very well. When she moved out 3 weeks ago she took the cat. Everyone is much happier now.
My "scared cat" Mittens is showing up much more often and not spending her day sleeping by my pillow or under my covers.
A big surprise, the "feral" cat that I got a while ago turns out to be pretty special. I have had 3 people tell me recently that he is a Russian Blue I looked up the breed on line and that is what he seems to be. He is not a pure breed but there must be a Russian Blue in his family. I have called him "my dog in cat clothes" because he is so playful and that is one of the traits.
