Bella – female domestic short hair adult cat


Rescue cat for adoption in Holland Park: Sometimes life just throws us a curve ball. Petite Bella has been adjusting to a world where her special person is no longer well enough to continue to provide care. After a period of grieving and missing her loving companion, Bella has turned a corner. She has started eating again and is now a more playful and vibrant little lady.

We believe Bella is about 7 years old and she had been living in a house with an elderly lady and an elderly gentleman that was lodging there. Bella loves a quiet life and adores having a perch with a view out the window. She is very content when she can spend her day watching the world. She enjoys company and will confidently greet anyone that visits. Bella absolutely adores a head and chin scratch. She likes to be near you, loves to have a bit of a chat however she is not fond of being picked up for a cuddle, instead preferring to be cradled upside down and held close for a mega cuddle especially before she goes to bed. Oh, and she’s also a lap cat! Some days though she likes her independence and to keep all 4 paws firmly on the ground.

Bella is a white cat which means she needs a home that will ensure she gets to enjoy a touch of the suns warmth but not too much as white cats are very vulnerable to skin cancer. Another common trait in white cats is hearing loss, however we are very confident Bella has excellent hearing.

We believe Bella’s ideal home is with a quieter person or family. She would be equally suitable for someone that works all day and as well as those that are home most of the time. We would suggest she is not an ideal cat to be with children. Bella has a lovely nature but she will let you know what her boundaries are. This usually involves a tail swish, a grumble or a little hiss. If someone is not “cat language literate” then I suspect Bella would speak her message more loudly with a swipe or a nip. Please don’t misunderstand; she is not an aggressive cat at all. She is just like many of us – she has personal preferences and she will communicate those to you. A gentle, loving girl with a touch of spunk and character.

Bella’s adoption fee is $150.  She is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, up to date with intestinal parasite and flea treatments, has been tested for FIV (negative result) and has had a dental to complete her new look!

Adoption Process

Our adoption fee includes a veterinary health check, vaccinations, microchip and spay/neuter, as required. Our kittens, adult cats, puppies and adult dogs are covered by a 30 day “settling in period.” If you don’t believe the pet you chose is suitable, he or she may be returned to us and your adoption fee will be refunded in full. Existing health conditions are addressed at the time of the initial veterinary consultation and declared in the “medical notes” on their individual listing.

During the “settling in period” we offer assurance to address any health concerns, pre-existing or otherwise, provided they are brought to our attention within 30 days from the date of adoption. This excludes any illness or injury is deemed accidental or deliberate. In the former instance, we will recommend you make an appointment with one of our participating vets for a consultation. Should you choose to use a vet of your own choice, we will not be responsible for the reimbursement of your vet fees.

Applicants wanting to adopt a kitten less than 20 weeks of age must be located within a reasonable proximity to one of our participating Brisbane vets.

Please note that we do not freight our kittens, adult cats, puppies or adult dogs.

Adoption applications can be completed on-line where you’ll find the appropriate links (to the forms) on our home page.
