Rescued 5/18/07 Died 10/11/13
Bella is very quite and reserved. She spent her first few days in her new enclosure in her den. She had never had a den before, so the dark secluded area was quite appealing.

Bella has turned around since her arrival and is quickly becoming a favorite among volunteers and guests alike.

"God," I implored, "never let me be this bored again."
