"Bella" is a lovely 2-year old female kitty who arrived at the HSOV on April 9, 2016 and was surrendered by her owner on April 11, 2016. Bella's story could very well become a script for a soap opera (Days of Our Lives) or possibly a tv reality show. This young lady might also be a candidate for 'Mother Of The Year' since her life has taken many unexpected turns. "Bella" and her first-born son (Zeus) had been making their home with their owners in a motel when an unknown tragedy occurred, and they suddenly lost that home and were brought to the safety of our shelter. They were separated since (sigh) it appeared that "Bella" was pregnant. "Bella" gave birth to her second little boy (Bobby) on May 4,2016 and dearly loved him and gave him all of her attention :) When little Bobby was just 12-days old, two orphaned kittens ("Cameo and Tig" who had been found beneath a barn) were brought to the HSOV and desperately needed a new mother .. And "Bella" welcomed them with open paws and began raising them as her own. "Bella" was happy and raising her blended family of three kittens when yet another challenge was presented just a few days later. On May 20, 2016 several other unweaned kittens were brought to the HSOV, and two of them (Dog and Shelly) were placed with "Bella" to see if she would accept two more little mouths to feed. And this sweet mother did indeed welcome them and began raising five kittens. "Bella" and her family of five babies went to a wonderful foster home on May 24, 2016. "Bella" has raised all five kittens to be healthy, happy, socialized youngsters and they are now weaned and will soon be ready to find homes of their very own when they are old enough to be spayed/neutered. Mother cats are amazing and "Bella" is no exception. :) This sweet momma deserves the best home ever! "Bella" is a gorgeous girl who has a brown tabby coat with reddish/orange highlights, white markings on her chest/paws, a long tail, and a beautiful face with large golden eyes. She has a lovely personality and a heart of gold. "Bella" was given wormer on April 9, 2016 and was given vaccinations on July 8, 2016. She will be spayed on July 13, 2016 in anticipation of finding a fantastic home where she will be loved, pampered and spoiled. Incidentally, Bella's first-born son (Zeus) was adopted on July 9th <3 Her second family of kittens are posted under their individual names: Bobby, Cameo, Dog, Shelly, and Tig. "Bella" was combo tested on May 14, 2016 and is negative for feline leukemia, FIV, and heartworm. She was spayed on July 13, 2016 and was also given rabies vaccine. Her adoption fee would be just $20 with an approved adoption application. UPDATE: "Bella" and several of her kittens were taken to WeLov Pets, Lafayette Plaza, Marietta Ohio on September 23, 2016.
