Facts about Bella

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10497525
  • Hair: Short

Lovely Bella came to Cat Town after her guardian passed away.  Now she’s looking for a new love, someone who will give her gentle head scratches, snuggle in bed, and whisper sweet nothings into her orange little ears.  At the mature age of 11, Bella knows what she wants, and her desires are pretty simple: attention and food.  She wants to be in a mellow home, with somebody who’s around a lot to keep her company, as she loves to lounge close to her person.  

Because of all the recent changes in Bella’s life, she may take a little time to feel comfortable in a new space, but you can help ease the process by providing her with a sunny spot to snooze, a little catnip for fun, and lots of love.  Her foster mom recently went through this process, and says that “Watching [Bella] relax and come out of her shell and become a sweetheart has been so rewarding.”  

Bella is spayed and $50 to adopt.  To learn more about this beautiful senior ginger, drop us a line!

Cat Town is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, formed by long term volunteers from Oakland Animal Services (OAS) and other Bay Area shelters. We have partnered with OAS to take the cats who are least likely to do well in a shelter setting. Please learn more about Cat Town by checking out our website at or our Facebook Page at

About Cat Town

About Our Rescue Group...

Cat Town is a 501(c)(3) cat rescue organization based in Oakland, CA. Formed by volunteers of Oakland Animal Services (OAS) (Oakland's municipal shelter), our mission is to find homes for the cats least likely to be adopted from OAS because they can't handle the stress of the shelter environment. By getting these cats into foster homes, they can relax and show their true personalities to potential adopters. We focus on older semi-feral kittens, stressed, shy or undersocialized cats, and cats who are older and/or have special needs. We are a relatively new organization and are all-volunteer run. We operate on a shoestring budget so can always use financial donations, as well as food, litter and other supplies. We are always looking for great foster homes and volunteers for everything that we do. Helping these vulnerable cats is pure joy! Please contact us at to get involved.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our cats are in foster homes, mostly in Oakland, CA, but some are in surrounding cities. Our fosters are generally very flexible about scheduling cat introductions.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our cats are in foster homes, mostly in Oakland, CA, or other nearby cities. We will talk to you by phone to make sure the cat sounds like a good fit for your home before setting up an introduction in the foster home. We have a pretty straightforward adoption application, which you will be asked to complete only after you have met a cat who you want to adopt. Our adoption fees for kittens and cats up to age 7 are $50 for a single cat or $75 for pair; cats age 8 an older are $35 for a single cat or $50 for a pair. All cats are spayed/neutered, current on their vaccinations and microchipped. Cats age six months or older are tested for FIV/FeLV.
