About four years ago, Carol fostered Bella for the first three weeks of her life and decided to adopt her. Soon after, Carol inherited Bella’s brother, a striped tabby cat named Spice, when his owner and her friend passed away. Bella finds Carol every night before bed to give a high-five for a treat. She also loves to be pushed around in Carol’s stroller during the day by the water. Spice has arthritis, so he likes to stay in his “cat cave,” but comes out occasionally to walk around and to be held. Carol also has finches—Mr. and Mrs. Weaver and Romeo. Carol built her own aviary for the three of them and loves to hear them greet her with their chirping in the morning, and when she comes home.
