Bella 

Cat | Female | Age: 10 years | Tabby | Spayed/Neutered

Personality
Independent. Likes to cuddle during cold weather. Likes to play with yarn/string, feather toys on string attached to pole that can be made to mimic flying, catnip infused toys or just catnip. Likes to sleep in tent-like structures. Enjoys sunning. Likes to sit out on the patio. Likes box houses. Enjoys high and low areas. Hates loud motor noises such as related to lawn mowers, vacuum cleaners, box fans, and apparently my new microwave. She is okay as long as she has somewhere to go far away from any noise that bothers her. Unfortunately my new place is too small for her to be able to do so.

Other Animals
Grew up with a chihuahua and 2 miniature schnauzers and did well with them. They have since passed away and when my daughter got a new dog she did not do well with it. We adopted a second cat when she was about 5 years old and did not do well with her either. Would do better where she is the only animal it appears.

Medical History
On a special diet for strutivite crystals. The food requires a prescription from a veterinarian. She will need this for life. Have tried trial decrease of medicated food to introduce wet food into her diet but it was not successful. Now feed her dry and wet prescription food. It is Science Hills urinary care C/D. The majority of her calories come from the dry food but give her 1/3 of a can in the evening of the wet food.

Ideal Home
Larger home. Has not done well since moving into smaller environment. Ideal owner likely someone who doesn’t want a lap cat but occasionally enjoys having a cat lay near you. This may be different with an owner that does not have allergy issues.

Other Information
I’m looking to regime her because she is not thriving in the new environment. I have cat allergies that have worsened as I’ve gotten older and she is not allowed to go in my bedroom to keep the allergens out. This has severely reduced her living space since it’s only a one bedroom apartment. She has grown more anxious since the move due to being able to here noises in the interior hallway of other tenants coming and going and their dogs barking. Our previous living situation was a 2 bedroom townhouse style entry so she was not exposed to any noises that did not come from inside the home. She also is not allowed to lay on the couch due to allergy reasons but has her own recliner that she is allowed to lay on that I keep covered with a sheet and can wash frequently. The last time she was vaccinated for rabies she had an adverse reaction so has not had one for several years. Since she is an indoor cat and not really exposed to other animals I have not attempted to vaccinate again since then. She typically does well with nail trimming; However, since the move she has not been as receptive to it. Has a microchip implant.
