Facts about Stella

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
**Stella is located in the Saint Charles, IL area**

Stella was rescued, heavily pregnant from Chicago Animal Care and Control. She was just a baby herself! She gave birth the next day to five beautiful kittens and became a wonderful mother. After she gave birth, the vet mentioned that she had pebbles in her stomach--she had probably been trying to eat those to keep her babies full! Now her babies are all grown up (and bigger than her) and she is ready for a home of her own.

Stella is a sweet girl who is no trouble at all. She is generally very mellow, but will occasionally have a burst of play energy and run around with other cats. When she does play, she loves to hide and seek--and is always up for a game of sneak attack with the other cats. She is small, but doesn't let that stop her.

Stella has the softest fur, and she loves to be petted. She also loves to snuggle with her foster mom. She has beautiful van markings, including a lovely heart shape on her side.

Stella lost most of her teeth to dental disease--her teeth hurt her so bad she couldn't even eat. Today, she has gained much needed wait and she loves to eat (dry and wet food).

Stella is about 4 years old.
