Is it Whiskers on Wednesday already???? Goodness!!!
This is Bella, a rather sedate, very shy, delicate, keep to herself kinda gal.
When it is time for her "Yum-Yums" she will love on you and let you love on her, but only for the required abount of time that it takes to place her food before her....but not so much at other times. I had hoped for a lap kitty but Bella will have none of that.
I think she was not socialized as a kitten as her behavior after 2 years is still very reserved with us and she prefers to be left to herself.
Bella was a rescue kitty that we adopted about 2 years ago. She had a recently broken back leg, with a pronounced limp....we were afraid no one would adopt her for fear of large vet bills and decided to take her home that very day.
She will play by herself with her toys, she doesn't bother Max at all......as a matter of fact, in passing they will often rub noses....but it is almost as if she doesn't know exactly what Max is....so she isn't afraid of him at all....rather nonchalant in fact.
With Heidi.....well......that is another story!! LOL!!
Heidi wants to have a playmate....she has tried and tried to engage Bella in playtime....but Bella, she is a delicate, dainty little thing....I believe she looks at Heidi as a "heathen" as she will gallop around the house, will go ANYWHERE.....drinks from the faucet for heavens sake, AND (shudder).....sticks her ENTIRE face in the food bowl, scattering food like a little pig, noisily chomping away....while Bella will daintly sit by her bowl, tail wrapped around her legs, all prim and proper and after a moment or two, ever so delicately and daintily take her paw and remove 2-3 pieces of food onto the mat for her dining enjoyment.
Two TOTALLY different kitties!!!
