Ella (F) HC4484Age: 6 monthsElla is related to Billie
Ella was born on the 9th of July 2020. Ella is Billie's sister. Our Ella Bella has come so far! Originally the shy one, she was actually the first of the two kittens to come for a fuss and a cuddle. Especially in bed (she will need a family who like having a feline bed mate or two!), she likes to snuggle up and burrows under the duvet, especially now that it is getting colder! She climbs to the tops of the scratch posts and performs acrobatics on the clothes racks. She likes to play with us, chasing things, likes strings and ribbons and oooooohhh does she love the Christmas tree and the (plastic, luckily kitten proof) baubles. Most of our baubles are no longer on the tree, but she is too cute and funny chasing them around the room to get upset. Little Ella Enchanted provides us with hours of entertainment.
Ella has a beautiful black coat, which is shiny and super soft. When she is lying in the sunshine, you can see her hidden stripes, very striking!
There are still elements of shyness in her, although we are certain she is only going to become more and more confident. You can't pick her up - let her come to you, she will! She loves napping high up, so a little bed on top of a shelf would be perfect. She also loves napping on top of the radiator, roasting cat! She then gets too hot and wobbles over, all sleepy, to a human's lap. Usually purring loudly. If you are sitting quietly, reading or working at your computer, she will come be with you. She is lying next to me as I am typing this.
Ella would not do well in a house with very young children, she's looking for older kids (depending on the child, maybe 8 years and older), who understand how to be gentle and very quiet, or otherwise a grown-ups only household. She loves being played with, though, so make sure you're ready for some feline play time! Ella needs humans who will love her, fuss over her, but also give her the time and space she needs and have the patience to let her come to you instead. Someone who understands what to expect from a sweet, shy kitten.
Up to date videos and photos of Ella can be found on our Foster Cottage Facebook page, do check them out! Photos here and videos here.
Ella would like to be adopted with her sister Billie. Ella has been microchipped and has had her first set of vaccines. She will need to be neutered around January 2021.
