When approaching her, move slowly, turn sideways, and do not give direct eye contact. Try getting down on one knee, and then wait for her to approach you. Turn your head to the side, yawn. Or turn your back to her. These are calming signals, and may help. It's going to take time, so try to keep things within her comfort zone. I had a rescue I fostered who was the same way. I sat on the floor with some garlic chicken in my hand, and waited for him. It took 11 days before he decided to give it up and give in! LOL A feral cat I fostered for Friends of Strays took 6 months before I could even touch him . . .he was out in the Florida room when we had a thunder storm, and was so terrified I really felt bad for him. I sat on the floor and he raced to me, shoved his head under my arm and was forever more my busom buddy! (yep, he stayed w/me!) LOL
