**SAFE 08/27/16** BELLISSIMA LADY GETS A SECOND CHANCE!! SAVE HER NOW!! BELLI DUMPED BECAUSE HER PREVIOUS OWNER IS SELFISH! – CITING “NO TIME” FOR THEIR 10 YEAR OLD CAT! They also apparently had “no time” to get her teeth check or monitor her daily meals. This girl is overweight and not a good thing for a 10 year old cat. If someone can take this BEGINNER RATED girl, get her moving, get her to a vet and get her some diet food then she won’t be as much at risk anymore. She’s got A LOT OF LIFE LEFT TO LIVE! Give her life back so she can start living AGAIN!

08/15/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/15/16 18:51 Belli was brought into the ACC because her previous owners could no longer care for her. Her previous owner said that she was shy around strangers and children, espcially younger, louder, rougher children. She tends to run away from them and hide. Around adults she is more friendly and affectionate. She has, however, lived successfully with children of all ages, she is just a bit shy around them. She lived with another female cat for a few years when she was younger (5 or 6) and mostly left her alone, but they would occassionally play gently together. She has never lived with or seen a dog. Previous owner reports no behavior issues- she doesn’t scratch furniture, she is quiet, and she always uses her covered litterbox. She has never ridden in a car. Belli has never received a bath but her previous owner states that she doesn’t like water. She enjoys being brushed. Belli will struggle if picked up and held- she did not struggle so much when she was younger and a healthier weight. She will struggle when being put in a carrier. Belli was described as friendly, affectionate, independent, and quiet. Owner noted she is particularly shy around men. She has a low activity level, and enjoys following owner around the house. She is indoors only. Her favorite places to sleep are under chairs and beds- anywhere dark, really. At the ACC, Belli meowed when her carrier was picked up. When it was opened, she poked her head out of it and sniffed counselor. She allowed counselor to pet her head and then stepped out onto the table. She allowed for collaring. She was interested in smelling food, but began to lick her nose instead of eating it. She did not want to go back into her carrier, but allowed counselor to pick her up and place her inside with minimal struggle. She meowed loudly while being carrier back to medical and her meow seemed to be louder and deeper when she was walked by the loud dogs.
