Playful, Energetic, Talkative
Ellie Belle's name may conjure up images of a prim and proper southern belle. But, we'll tell you right now, she's more of a take-no-prisoners, free-wheeling wild child! We can't blame her. She was pregnant not all that long ago and now that the responsibilities of motherhood are behind her, she's ready to cut loose!
Ellie is a gorgeous kitty who loves to run and chase. She's a talker too, who will excitedly chat away as soon as she sees you. She enjoys being petted. But, if you do it longer than she likes she'll be sure to let you know with an "enough already" bite.
Ellie is shy around other cats and afraid of dogs so she doesn't interact with either. She has excellent kitty litter manners, but is still working on the fine art of scratching in appropriate places only.
Ellie would do well in a home where she can be active and playful. She would do best with a cat-experienced person or people who will embrace and appreciate her spunky cat-itude. Also, assorted scratching surfaces are recommended to help her master the often confusing human rules of what is and isn't okay to scratch. A home without young kids would be best given her propensity to declare that petting time is over with a bite. But, she'd likely do fine with older kids who are respectful and aren't bothered by an occasional nip.
If you're ready for the company and fun of a free-spirited, furry friend, Ellie Belle is ready to let the wild rumpus begin...with you!
