Bella is a beautiful, sweet, happy Maine Coon mix who needs surgery to remove a mass from one of her back legs. She was surrendered to the shelter with her friend Lottie. We were told that they had been abandoned by their previous owner. She was examined by a veterinary surgeon who recommended removal of the tumor and a biopsy. She is scheduled for bloodwork and x-rays prior to her surgery. Bella is active and the tumor does not restrict her movement at this time. However it is quite large and must be removed. The estimated cost of the surgery is between $2790 - $3,000. We are asking for monetary contributions to support Bella's surgery. Donations can be sent to the shelter or through PayPal.
Our shelter does not focus on statistics. We focus on each individual life that needs our help. We are asking for your financial support so that we can help Bella.

- Cats walk like camels and giraffes. They move their right feet first and then move both of their left feet. No other animals walk this way.
- Cats have large eyes relative to their head size. They have the largest eyes of any mammal.
- Kneading – some people refer to as “making biscuits” is a sign of contentment and happiness. Kittens knead their mothers when they are nursing to stimulate milk production.
- Female cats can get pregnant when they are only four months old.
Some Interesting Facts About Cat Anatomy and Physiology:

A Special Appeal to Help a Special Cat
My name is Lottie. The shelter staff tells me that I have “blossomed” at the shelter. Besides being very pretty; I have a very sweet personality. I am still a little shy when new people come into the shelter; but I’m your best friend as soon as you pay attention to me. I like to play with toys especially ones with catnip. I came to the shelter with Bella. We get along great but I could also be adopted as an only pet. The shelter has no history of me living with young children or dogs. I am very happy being an indoor companion. I have lots of love and fun to share.
If you interested in adopting one of our cats or kittens; please complete an Adoption Application online. One of our volunteers will call you as soon as we receive your application.
