I am having an hard with my nan's cat: she passed away a couple of weeks ago, so I am taking care of her.
Problem is, I think she is quite nervous around people: whenever I enter the courtyard she always is in this place or climbing the ladder:
She won't come down unless you bring her food, and sometimes not even then. From the roof, she stares down at me and meows incessantly: she litteraly won't stop!
If I blink slowly at her she won't blink back, but would sometimes look away instead.
My dad tried to pet her while she was in the courtyard, and got scratched.
Oddly enough she came downstairs by her own and stared, meowed at me as usual, sometimes lowering her ears. This time I managed to record it, maybe someone can help me figure out what kind of meowing it is?

I thought she maybe was very hungry but left half of the food behind.
Then she sat in the middle of the courtyard, with the tip of her tail raised and still. (Can not post pics due to rep req.)
Whenever I go visit her I also sit down for a few minutes so that I can appear less intimidating.
I never owned a cat before, can someone help me figure out what should I do? Thanks.
