Are all rescue cats affectionate?

I don't know if I lucked out with the sweetheart I adopted today, or whether they all tend to be nicer when rescued.

I only ever adopted stray kittens before, so I'm not an expert on this ;)

No... not all. Some have been abused. Just like people... if you abuse someone... they are not very likely to be affectionate.

Well, I actually expected her to be stand-off-ish at the very least, but she's a sweetie.

The stand offish ones are probably not use to humans..... or were abused. You got lucky. Enjoy your kitty.

Definitely- she's purring on my lap as I type this ;)

They may be affectionate. It depends on where they lived in the past and how they were treated.

She was thrown out of a car by her previous owner, though, so I was really surprised that she's so sweet.

Animals are different like people. I mean, kinda obvious.

I know that- however, rescue dogs stick to you like a wet leave to a butt. Those kind of things change their personalities quite often, as it is really damaging.

Nope. Some are wild and feral and mean as the devil.
