Not that different. by Catist Not that different. by Catist

For Bella, the possibility of a life in the streets has ended.
She's in her new home right now, with a loving human mother and two feline playmmates that i'm sure they'll eventually warm up to her. ~18/06/2014



For more recent photography of adorable Bella, please check out my gallery.


Update: May 20 2014~ Today I almost lost my precious Bella. Apparently, some lady that lives nearby decided Bella is a mistake of nature, and took her to be euthanized. Luckily, the vet remembered Bella -and how could someone forget this amazingly adorable face- and didn't proceed on euthanizing her. I ran with every tiny bit of strength I had, at the very moment school was over, and I took her from the vet. I promised her I wouldn't let anyone hurt her. I find it trully sad, all this that happened today. Except from the fact that she cannot feed herself properly because she cannot open her mouth, Bella has no other health problems. I just find it sad and disappointing that someone even thought to kill her just because “they couldn't look at her face”. So I decided to foster Bella, though that's going to be temporary, starting from next week -I'd take her immediately at my house, but sadly I need to travel to Athens tomorrow, for health issues. It's going to be really difficult, but I can't even stand the thought of something like this happening again. Maybe Bella will be a lucky kitten and maybe she'll find a loving home.


Bella is a two months old kitten that was born within the cats in the area I and a lady feed regularly stray kitties.
Bella seemed like a 'normal' kitten. Until a couple of weeks ago. 
It was clear that her mother was separating her from the rest of the litter, and she was in danger of starving to death.
A visit to the vet brought unexpected news: for unknown reasons, Bella has remained in a 20 days old kitten stage. She has several neurological problems too.
Her one ear is always folded, and her little tongue keeps sticking out of her mouth. She cannot eat properly or clean herself so we have to help her with that.
Other than that, she's a wonderful, lively kitten. It's enough to look at her and she starts purring. So what if she's a kitten with special needs? She's still absolutely lovable.
It's hard to cope with jerks here that don't like anything different. But we are all different.
-Sorry for the long rant over.-

Indeed.
I usually cannot sleep until 3 am to be honest. Which sucks when you have school in the morning. :c

I cannot understand how would someone want to harm another living being just because they're different, or because they don't like them.
I mean, I don't like humans either, but that doesn't mean I'll ever harm someone.
Thank you very much for taking time to read Bella's story, it's very appreciated. She's living a wonderful life now.

I'm so happy that she has a home. Thanks for sharing her story. I can't believe that someone could think of her as a mistake. I feel bad for her. She was abandoned and has some special needs. She's also adorable. I'd love to have a kitten like her if I could. :)

Bella is a really precious baby -not that other kittens are equally precious, but there's something almost angelic about her.
I don't get it either how could someone ever think of her as a mistake; after all everyone is different and we should accept that.
I'd also love to be her human if I was able to provide her with everything she needs..
Thank you again.

P.S. And please don't feel bad anymore; I think she's as happy as she could ever be~

That's the thing of it... and I know what you mean... so many of them have to go through so much awfulness and suffering... very sad stories, that NO living being should have to go through... but it's absolutely heart-warming when there are some of these stories which DO have happy endings... and while I'll always wish they all could, both in animals and humans, I try very hard to focus to focus on the ones that get their happy endings... otherwise, I would go through life extremely depressed, you know?

It is these happy endings that bring balance, that show there are happy endings, that there IS happiness...

I have a lot of experience with this, with learning this the hard way, with just my experience with animals alone, :nod:

my icon here, is a symbol of just one of my many cats and their (happy) stories...

Anyway, so good on you and again I'm happy for you and Bella! :love:

To be honest with you, I'm a very pessimistic person, I always see the worst side of everything.
I've lost so so so many of my stray friends -because I don't see them just as animals- and I've experienced the rotten side of people in my area, and not only.
But Bella's story gave me hope. 
Because I was so close to giving up; not on Bella of course, but on people.
It always brightens my day to meet -even if that's through the internet- other people that share my love for these beautiful and pure souls.
I had already noticed your icon a while ago, but since I'm not the most talkative -or brave or good at interacting with others- person, I said nothing. ;-; Sorry about that. And I'm glad that your lovely cat also has a happy story, these are what keep us going.
Aww
