Bella - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Cat

Adopted from A.D.O.P.T. Pet Shelter, Naperville, IL.

A.D.O.P.T. sent me an email with a list of their special needs pets back in May 2013. On that list was a cat who was a blend physically of my two last cats. I felt compelled to visit A.D.O.P.T. to find my next best friend. Sadly ,this particular cat passed away since, but as I said to her, she was responsible for matching me with the love of my life, Bella, formerly known as Ms. Helen. Bella's personality is EXACTLY as A.D.O.P.T. described. She is an amazing cat, and I whisper in her ear every morning, "Thank you for finding ME!" Everything happens for a reason. Shelter pets are the best. They want to be wanted. Thank you to A.D.O.P.T. and Petfinder!!! This is Bella on her first day in our home with her first toy, Rocky the flying squirrel.
