Catfight!

I've been trying for a while to get a good video of Bella in action so that everyone can see how far she's come. Any time she sees a camera pointed at her, however, she stops what she's doing to check it out. I finally managed to get this clip of Bella and her sister Clementine play-fighting, although they do get a little distracted by the camera in the middle. Notice which cat is the aggressor and which one is running out of the room to escape!



Apologies for the clumps of cat fur on the carpet...the daily vacuuming of the rug had not occurred yet at the time of the video!

In other good news, our tax refund was just enough to finish paying off Bella's vet bill! I still can't believe that so many complete strangers helped Bella out with her surgery expenses. Their kindness and generosity has meant so much to us, and I thank everyone who helped from the bottom of my heart!

  5. This is such an interesting and heartening blog. Bella is remarkable and it's really interesting to see the progress she's made (so quickly too) - you have done such a great job documenting the stages of her recovery, this is a really interesting resource. Brilliant work :)

    Bella is a real saucepot!

  23. Have you allowed Bella back outside? Our beloved boy Jacob was attacked by a dog 1 week ago. He's lost his left hind leg. As I type this my Husband is taking him down to the vet as his would is infected.
    Our other cat Bertha is going stir crazy staying inside and spraying and weeing everywhere. Jacob is certainly pining to go outside, despite the fact that he cannot even walk yet. We do not know what to do when his leg is better and how to keep them both in when they have enjoyed such a wonderful outdoor life until this tragedy has happened. Thanks. Anita
