|This is Bella on her way to the vet on Tuesday.|
Whenever she's not sure what to do, she lays down.
|Bella didn't eat when she came home from the surgery, even|
with some canned food mixed in.
|The morning after surgery Bella ate about half her food and|
finished the rest of it during the day. She ate all her food as
she normally does on Wednesday evening.
|Jess on the way to the vet.|
|When Bella steps out of the car at any new place she|
has that same look on her face that she did when

|She was curious but non-aggressive. Mostly she wasn't|

|If the cat was nearby, she was focused on it.|
If the cat moved, she moved.
|It seemed to be her first time meeting a cat.|

if the cat had ran, I'm pretty certain that
Bella would have given chase.
|Upon arrival at Green Dogs, uncertain, must lay down.|
|The tail was tucked when we first arrived, but the ears were|
fully engaged. She relaxed after meeting Erika, gave kisses,
and even wagged her tail.
|Bella prefers to touch rather than be touched|
when meeting new people, but she allowed
this and quickly warmed up at least to the
point of being comfortable, if not thrilled to
|She seemed more familiar with kids than cats.|
