We have had the pleasure of introducing Bella to our home. She is a confident, laid back girl who has been adapting quickly to her stressful situation. She arrived after spending the night at the UW vet school for blood in her stool and straining. However, we have not seen any evidence of these symptoms. She went to the bathroom several times the first 24 hours and that has cleared and she is back to a normal 2ish times per day. The first few days she was a gassy girl and could clear the room with her toots, but that has been getting better everyday.
Bella loves to snuggle and isn't comfortable unless her head is laying on you or another of our furry family, ahem, including our cats!. She laid her head on our foster failure Dewey the second night and they both fell asleep. That was a good sign they were both feeling ok about the changes in the house. She had never met a cat until she came here and now she has successfully snuggled with each of her 3 new cat friends.
She walks beautifully on a leash and enjoys running around in the backyard and instigating playtime with Dewey. Sometimes she throws herself at your feet onto her back so you can rub her belly. Bella's hair sticks up on top of her head and it gives her a fun permanent hairstyle. She's a very sweet, well-mannered girl.
We're waiting on some additional bloodwork results from the vet school and watching for any additional symptoms.
