Pet Focus: Superstars of the Week – Ike and Bella

Ike, left, and Bella

As many of us know, blended families are the best! Ike and Bella couldn’t agree more. Ike is a 4-year-old silver and black tabby who loves affection from her kitty stepmom, Bella, and caring human companions. Bella, almost 11 years old, is a brown tabby who also delights in belly rubs and bonding. She is lovingly watchful over Ike; the two lived together before their previous owner passed and would be thrilled to go to a new home together. Both charming, good-natured ladies are healthy, vaccinated, and spayed. They are supportive and affectionate to each other and all those around them, so separate homes would only work for them under very specific circumstances. We’d much rather show them that blended families like theirs can make it anywhere!

Ike and Bella currently live at United Animal Friends’ Kitty City at Petco in Prescott. Visiting hours are from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and 4 to 5:30 p.m. Sundays through Fridays, as well as 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Saturdays. As the UAF Superstar of the Week, Bella’s and Ike’s adoption fees are $20 each ($40 total) to a UAF-approved home. If you have questions about this duo, you can call Ruth at 928-379-1088 or visit the UAF website: www.UnitedAnimalFriends.org.
