A new member of the Family ~
A.K.A. "City Cat ~ Country Cat"!
We have been blessed with the care of a wonderful kitty named "Bella"
To avoid confusion with my "Bellamica" ~ whom I often call Bella, I call the kitty "Bella Kitty".
She is a sweetheart!
Bella Kitty came from a family that loved her very much and were SO sad to let her go. But she had developed a very bad habit of not using her litter box. The family even took her to the vet to make sure there was no physical problem and tried all sorts of 'remedies' to try to alleviate the problem, but Bella Kitty kept 'marking' in her family's home. It was with a very heavy heart that the decision was made to rehome Bella.
Bella Kitty came to live with us last Sunday. She's been staying in a large (8 x 8 foot) pen in my garage, to give her a chance to get used to my other animals. She's such a mellow girl that she made friends with Sable & Bellamica right away!
My cats still aren't sure what to make of her but they all tolerate each other with no aggression.
Today was the first day that I brought Bella Kitty outside...
She was curious about but respectful of the chickens.
She checked out the whole backyard.
Isn't she beautiful?
She even went out and introduced herself to the sheep!
Bella Kitty is very good about coming to me when I call her.
She loves to be picked up and snuggled!
When she finally had enough exploring for one day,
She headed back into the garage,
All. By. Herself!
What a good kitty!
"We;come to the Bluff Country, Bella Kitty.
Now, who broke my swing???"
