Bette is a sweetheart and though she is a little timid when first getting to know someone, once she trusts them she loves to be around them. She enjoys just sitting near you. She does not like to interact with other cats, but is left alone she does fine with them.
We at Little Love Bugs Rescue recognize that cats live longer, healthier lives if they are kept indoors. Therefore, anyone who adopts a cat or kitten from us will be asked to sign a contract stating that the cat will remain indoors for the duration of its life. We also believe that declawing a cat is a serious surgery that carries with it the possibility of many complications*. Therefore any adopter will also be required to sign a contract to never declaw their cat. *To remove the claw, the last bone of your the cat's claw has to be removed. It is a painful surgery, with a painful recovery period. In fact, declawing is illegal or considered extremely inhumane (and only performed under extreme circumstances) in over 20 countries, including England, Germany, Spain, and France. The cat is also deprived of its primary means of defense, leaving it prey to predators if it ever escapes to the outdoors. There are many alternatives to declawing a cat, including nail caps, training cats to use a scratching post, and other aversion methods.
