Stella (Spayed) - Update's Story...
Stella" is a lovely female kitty who arrived at the HSOV on June 6, 2015 when she was found in the Little Hocking Ohio area. Though "Stella" was merely an overgrown kitten herself (one-year old), she had two small kittens with her. Her little female kitten was adopted quickly before we had an opportunity to take her photographs (I recall that she resembled her beautiful momma). Her little boy (Sylvester) is currently in a wonderful foster home and is listed as a 'special needs kitty' since he has balance issues following a bad ear infection. He is bonded with a special needs momma kitty (Sweet Sioux), and we hope that they will be adopted together.

"Stella" is a beautiful young lady with a black-and-white short smooth coat, a long tail, and an adorable face with a pink nose and the cutest, most intent facial expressions. She is a delightful kitty with a fun-loving, affectionate personality, and she is such a charmer :)

We discovered that "Stella" is fascinated by her reflection in a mirror! Perhaps she is amazed to see that she really is as pretty as everyone tells her she is <3

This little dollbaby loves to snuggle in your arms, and she has become a favorite with our kennel techs and volunteers. We cannot understand why nobody has adopted this little sweetheart.

"Stella" was spayed on August 28, 2015, and she is up-to-date on vaccinations including rabies vaccine. She isn't a very large girl and weighs approximately 7-8 lbs. .. The perfect size to curl up next to you on these cold winter evenings :)


We discovered recently that Stella was walking with a limp on her right front leg :( A local veterinarian x-rayed her leg and found that someone had shot this sweet kitty with bb pellets .. which is difficult to understand how anyone could harm such a lovely innocent girl. The vet did not believe that surgery was required~

We are showcasing "Stella" and the three other HSOV Kitties (Baby Bella, Ellie, and Princess Zelda) who are our longest-term feline residents in the shelter in hopes that someone will fall in love with these little "Furry Valentines" and give them a loving home <3

UPDATE: "Stella" was combo tested on February 17, 2016 and, sadly, she is positive for FIV. She is negative for feline leukemia and heartworm. "Stella" has been accepted into a sanctuary for FIV positive kitties.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stella (Spayed) - Update, a Marietta Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Marietta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marietta already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Marietta breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marietta paves the way for another one to be saved.
