Meet Bella

Bella has been at our shelter for THREE YEARS as of January 6th. This officially makes her our longest resident & we need your help to change that! Please consider sharing Bella's story in hopes of finding her the forever home she deserves.

Bella was surrendered to our shelter because her family developed allergies and was unable to care for her any longer. This spunky girl is about nine years old and requires a cat-savvy adopter who will respect and understand her boundaries.

Bella has an incredibly unique personality - she prefers to be independent but will seek out affection strictly on her terms. Once an established relationship is made, she will allow for some head scratches and body pets. If she feels as if she's had enough attention, she won't be afraid to give you a verbal warning that is sometimes paired with a smack on the hand. Bella's first instinct is not to attack or become aggressive, however, if she feels that her boundaries have been crossed, she has no problem letting you know.

Bella is now currently residing in a foster home, where she is isolated in her own private room, as she is reactive towards the two other cats in the household. When her foster parent spends time with her, she greets him with a friendly hello and runs over to grab one of her favorite toys in excitement. She is endearingly protective of her person and must be the only cat in the home. She will occasionally want to sit on your lap and purr, but will not want to be pet when this occurs.

Bella is essentially the type of cat that requires time, patience and understanding. She will never be the type of cat who wants to be picked up, carried around or snuggled with. Her ideal home environment would be low-traffic without other animals or small children.
