It's our newest roommate, Bella's birthday today! She's 11 years old!
She has only been here just over a week, but Delilah and I have opened our home to her. Currently we are fostering her, but if all continues to go well, we will be adopting her soon.
Bella's story is a little sad, and we think she misses her human a lot. She lived her entire life with a man who, in the last couple of months, was put into a hospital to live because he had Alzheimer's disease. His daughter, who apparently is not much of a cat person, wanted to have Bella put down, but was too 'busy' and left her alone in the house for a week before she brought her to the vet. Of course, the vet didn't think she should be put down, so he contacted a local rescue to see if they would take her in. Just before she came here, she was shaved because of a few mats in her fur, which we think might be why she is so shy. As much as we hate what she has gone through, we are so happy she's here with us now. She really loves Mommy and The Ball Guy and she is slowly coming out of her shell.
She also loves tuna, so we'll have plenty of that, and of course nip and toys to play with, so you're all welcome to come celebrate with us and welcome our new sister!
Happy Birthday, Bella!
