Facts about Bella 2

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 81302
  • Hair: Unknown

Bella is a sweet approximately 1 year old cat. She needs a quiet home with no small children. Her previous owner was abandoning her (moving away and leaving Bella behind) because in her own words, her children were abusive to her, and because of this, Bella is fearful of small children and lots of noise. Although she is fearful of smaller children, she does extremely well with my 17 year old son and actually seeks him out to pet her.

It has taken weeks for Bella to become comfortable in my home. At first, it was almost impossible to even touch her. She still does not like to be picked up but is slowly beginning to show her true personality. In the last two weeks especially I see a big change. I think she is finally beginning to feel safe here in her foster home. She will rub on me to be petted and seems to want to be near people. She purrs often now and will sleep on the foot of the bed. She will eat out of the palm of my hand. She does well with dogs and other cats and comes running when she hears the cookie (cat treat) bag come out. Although she is fearful of smaller children, she does extremely well with my 17 year old son and actually seeks him out to pet her. She is also now beginning to play with the cat toys. Before she would only sit on the sidelines and watch, and now she is finally participating. Last night, she actually laid on her back on the carpet which is something that I have never seen her do (See pic below).

I have been taking Bella to the weekly Petco adoption events, but they seem to be very stressful for her. She cries all the way there and once there, hides under the blanket in her cage. She recognizes my voice when I go to pick her up and comes out instantly ready to leave. Once we get home, it's like she is exhausted and she will go hide and sleep for hours before she comes out again. Although I wish to find her the home that she deserves, I hate putting her through this kind of trauma again and again. People do not get to see her true self because she hides in the cage and so I feel she may be overlooked due to her shy personality. She truly is a very sweet cat that needs to (and from what I observe, wants to) feel safe, secure and able to trust.

Please help me find a wonderful home for this sweetheart of a kitty. This is a pic I was able to snap last night of the first time she laid on her back 

About Heaven Can Wait Animal Haven

About Our Rescue Group...

HCW is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping reduce the pet population of West Michigan by spaying/neutering and educating on spaying and neutering.

We are honored by donations and need them to survive as a rescue who promotes spay and neuter. We are always in need of monetary donations. Please e-mail or call us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets reside in foster homes with loving and friendly families and a host of other cats and sometimes dogs. This allows them to live in a safe and comfortable home until they are adopted to their forever homes. Please come and visit our cats and kittens at Muskegon's Petco on Harvey Street near Old Navy. We are there on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5:00p. Call us about specific animals and keep updated via our pet profiles and on facebook!

Our Adoption Process...

All of our felines live in foster homes and are adopted through Petco. All of our animals are vaccinated, spayed and neutered, and microchipped before they are deemed ready to be adopted. Pricing Varies per Animal.

Please note Heaven Can Wait does NOT declaw our animals. We do however, pull many from local shelters that have already had this procedure as they are just as deserving of finding furever homes as all of the other kitties.
