Facts about Bella 'Italian Beauty'

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Bella is beautiful, sleek and has a nose like a bloodhound. We don't know if she is really Italian, but that's my guess and I am sticking to it! Bella was lucky enough to be born with medium long hair and gorgeous eyes. So, on looks alone she is worthy of adoption into a new home. But wait! She is also very friendly, quiet and is easily pleased. She enjoys playing and lights up when she's chasing her favorite toy swinging around from a string attached to a stick. She really enjoys being brushed too.

Watch her as she sits on the windowsill. It’s good to be a cat! She enjoys a sunny day and watching birds that chirp while enjoying a full bird feeder. She is quickly learning to relax in our temporary residence, but she has told us that she prefers humans to cats. So, we recommend that you let her be the Queen of your household, and enjoy having a single cat rule your home. No other animals are needed…all she wants is you!
