my frightened cat doesn't like people

my cat does not like to be held but at night she will curl up on my lap .also she is scared of other people who visit.

Answer from Kate
this is not unusual behavior, some cats are just more nervous than others. Sometimes it is down to previous life experiences and other times it is simply a personality trait.

Please see this page for more on nervous cats

best wishes Kate
