Stella was brought to her now foster home backyard by another cat - Sammy (see his profile on the website as well - big while and black tuxedo kitty). Stella was still a teenager (in kitty years) and, as we later found out, already pregnant. We kept feeding her every evening until eventually she ended up giving birth to her kittens in our backyard. Sammy was always very protective of her, and made sure she'd always eat first. To this day, they are very much bonded. If they can be adopted together, it would be ideal, but not required.

First, we thought Stella was feral, as she would run away when we'd approach. But just in a couple of days, she'd let us pet her and she'd purr and rub on us, so sweet. Definitely not feral! Just a stray, unfortunately. She started trusting us completely, even with her kittens. Stella's kittens have all been adopted, and Stella is now spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. As you can see from her pictures, she got her right ear clipped as a sign of being spayed in case she'd have trouble adjusting. We didn't know if she'd do well in full time indoor life after the kittens were gone, but she's been wonderful!

Stella definitely prefers being indoors, she loves the warmth of humans, the soft blanket or the sun through a window. She is very good with dogs, and with most cats with proper introduction. She would also be great as a single cat as she gets very attached to humans. Stella is careful with new people at first, but once she warms up, she'd follow her humans around the house, asking for chin rubs and just the attention. She is very smart as she quickly figured out how to push open some doors (not those that are locked), curtains, where her bed is, when her humans come home, and even what her new name is. Stella is very affectionate and prefers to be in the same room with her humans at all times. She has an almost dog-like personality with her attentiveness to humans, and she also loves to cuddle and play.

Stella is about 2 years old, spayed, microchipped, de-worned, de-flead, vaccinated, and tested negative for FIV and FeLV. If you would like more information or to meet Stella, please call (805) 222-0135 or email CCRescueCats@gmail.com.
