BELLA, 4 year old female DSH White & Black


BELLA was taken to Casino Shelter, where she was adopted. A couple of weeks later she was returned for no apparent reason. Now we want the perfect home for this loving cat.

Bella was adopted from Petbarn Lismore as part of their ADOPT ME programme.

Unfortunately she was returned because they said she did not get along with their other cats. This would seem to indicate that they did not listen to the advice given, or do their research, about How To Introduce A New Cat.

If you are having problems with one of our adopted animals, please phone the ARRG office and ask for advice. A very good source of information for cat behavioural problems, including introductions, is https://www.jacksongalaxy.com/blog/how-to-introduce-two-cats/

Bella is an independent lady, who may not want to be picked up, but does love to be patted. So in light of this recent failed adoption, if her potential adopter does not want to go to the trouble of properly introducing her to a resident cat, then perhaps she should be considered as an ONLY CHILD.

To expedite the adoption process, click on 'I want to ADOPT NAME' OR email ARRG (nonkill@animalrights.org.au - Subject: ARRG ID #### NAME) proof of home ownership (copy of Rates Notice), or if you rent, a letter of agreement from your landlord (on letterhead of rental agency)/owner (letter needs to be specific about what pets are allowed, and also needs a copy of Rates Notice to show they are they owner of the rental property). Note that copies of Rates Notices can be redacted for privacy.

You can also take this opportunity to tell us why you would make the best guardian for this cat.

Recommended that you include following in email:
* Why you/your family would make best guardian;
* Number of children/Ages?
* Pets?
* History with cats?
* Phone number ...

Please FOLLOW and SHARE the ARRG Facebook page, where you can view the latest photos/videos of the animals in care, and new arrivals.
