Humane Society of West Alabama: Meet Bella. She is a little over a year old with a white/tabby coat. She is shy, but recently has started to come out of her shell. Bella's favorite friend at our shelter is Romeo. They're inseparable. Her favorite pastime is napping, but you can catch her playing with a wand most days. Those are her favorite toys. Bella does well with other cats, but she can be standoffish at first. Don't let this fool you — she's as sweet as can be. She is negative for feline immunodeficiency virus and feline leukemia, current on vaccinations and spayed. Visit Bella and the other cats and kittens at the HSWA Cat Adoption Center on Saturdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Otherwise, please call 205-554-0011 or visit to request an appointment to meet our available animals.
