About Bella

Bella is a stunning 4 year old female domestic longhair who came in to LAA as her previous owner developed allergies. Bella is a very placid, laid back puss who takes life in her stride and can quite often be found on her back with her paws in the air! She enjoys fuss, being handled and can be quite active for play when she feels like it - because of this she would need someone who is around for part of the day to give her the attention she needs. Despite Bella being a relaxed girl we do feel that she could live with children aged 12 years and over, and she has shown to feel uncomfortable around children. Bella prefers her own company so must be the only animal in the home. As she has such a long, luxurious coat, this is goihg to need some extra TLC with daily grooming. Bella does have a skin allergy so a potential adopter must be willing to give her the support she needs in managing this with medication.

Cat care

Until a cat is settled into a new home it is essential that they are not let outside and as a general guide this would be about four weeks. However, this is dependent on the individual cat.
Whilst a cat is confined to indoors you can introduce new toys for them to play with and chase. Cat nip toys can be especially rewarding. A scratch post will hopefully discourage them from choosing your sofa to sharpen their claws! Regular grooming by you will help to cement the bond between cat and new owner and although cats are known to generally be more independent than a dog, they thrive on companionship and interactive play. Even adult cats can be persuaded to practice their stalking and pouncing skills on an old shoelace, or play hide and seek in a cardboard box!
