My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Stella Bella was a gorgeous long-haired kitty who was black with a mix of gray when she came to the refuge. She was very pregnant when she was surrendered to the refuge by a former Goathouse employee in hopes that she would have a safe place to deliver her babies. Within a few days of her arrival, she gave birth to 4 kittens on 4-10-21. Stella Bella and her babies have been receiving wonderful care in a foster home, and while Stella Bella remains very guarded and avoidant of people, we hope with time she will grow to trust humans so that she can find a great forever home once her kittens no longer need her to mother them. She lost a great deal of fur during her pregnancy which is growing back with no gray nor white except the round white dot on her chest, and she is very petite for an adult kitty. It is thought that she will eventually be a medium to long haired solid black kitty with one dot of white at her chest. Stella Bella would prefer a very quiet, patient family with experience in cat socialization so she can have the space and supportive guidance she needs in order for her to thrive.
