No, I did not hear from anyone who was interested so since the previous owner had a contract with the Arlington Welfare League I took her to them which just wrecked me. I miss her so much and I just had her for a year but she is just a wonderful sweet baby.They said Belle would be taken care of until she is adopted again and especially because she was one of their own having been there before and they don't put babies down unless there is a medical necessity or gets uncontrollable. I want to see how she is but can't. I leave this area for good in a week. I have never given up a pet before and it is even more awful because she is so sweet. Thsnk you for asking.

I am not the contact.  Please pass this on if you're not taking them. It's very helpful to send these on if you can, as you never know who might need a great cat in their lives. Thanks!

Go Get a Life---Go Get a Shelter Animal!

If you can't adopt, then foster a "bottle baby" shelter animal, to save their life.  If you can't bottle feed, then foster an older or special-needs animal, to save their life, and to free up cage space for another life.

Ask your local animal pound to start saving over 90% (and as high as 99%) of their intake by implementing the No Kill Equation: http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org/shelter-reform/no-kill-equation/.  Here's a list of communities saving 90% or more of their shelter intake: http://www.saving90.org/california.html and  http://outthefrontdoor.com/, with special notice to: http://outthefrontdoor.com/2013/12/03/can-we-adopt-our-way-out-of-killing/  More fun reading: http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org/shelter-reform/guides/ More fun watching:  http://vimeo.com/48445902 and http://vimeo.com/70632980
