Bella is 10 years old, and she's lived all of her life in one quiet home. Coming to the shelter was a bit of a shock to her, and she started to demonstrate very shy behavior. People couldn't even see how pretty she was, because she'd run and hide whenever a visitor came along. She's been watching the other cats in her suite (especially Charisma), and she's been learning from them. While she may not be the first to greet visitors, she is ready to accept gentle pets and touches from those who take a slow approach.
Bella came to the shelter when her family had to move, and she couldn't come along. She has been described as mellow, and she apparently loves to be brushed. That's a good thing, as she has extremely long and fluffy hair. Her new family will need to invest some time in brushing, so she stays as gorgeous as she is right now. Bella adores other cats, and can happily live with feline friends. A friendly mentor might be just what she needs to feel confident. Bella doesn't enjoy children, however. And she has no dog experience.
Bella's people said she takes time to warm up to new people, and she can hide when she is nervous. Her new family will need to let Bella set the tone in her new home, and they'll need to keep things light and positive. She will learn to love and trust, but she will need space and kindness as she decides that things are safe.
We'd love to see Bella go home today. Can you help?
