My sister-in-law has a new friend. Sophie has a new cousin.

Meet Bella.

She's two years old and my SiL got her from a shelter. They need each other.

Val's cat of almost 22 years passed away a month or two ago. Boots got her through the good and bad times and they were forever buddies. Boots was the Petey of Charleston. Later in his years, he needed a lot of special care, and Val was happy to do it.

I was thrilled when she texted me with the news.....and these two pics.

The fur, the colouring, the white paws.  I'm just dying.

This was just after a few hours after Bella's arrival - she seems quite comfortable in her new digs.

Bella was her shelter name and Val thought it fit so she kept it as is.

I'm looking forward to meeting her this October when we are down to visit for a wedding.

Oh, such a bonny girl! Anyone with taste and a capacity to love would surely
leap at the chance of taking her in, and I'm so happy to her she's got a home which really appreciates her. Hoping to see a lot more of Bonnie Bella in your forthcoming posts.

my nyla (sophie's sister from another mother) also came from the shelter with her name and I didn't change it.

Bella's name suits her to a T. She gaw-geous!

When we rescued Consuelo form the shelter her name was "Molly."
She is SO not a Molly; she's a definite Consuelo!
