(Editor's note: Great news — was adopted!)
Meet Isabella. She is a 9 to 10 year-old beautiful dark brown tabby with a patch of white. She is spayed, up-to-date on feline distemper and rabies shots, feline leukemia/feline AIDS negative and has already been microchipped.
She originally came from a rescue in Washington State and moved all the way to Virginia with her owner. She was with the same person for the last seven years, but was given to the shelter when another cat in the household began to fight with her.
Isabella is very petite and quite a “ little lady.” She would do best with calm cats who will leave her alone or love her instead of bossing her around. She seems shy at first, but if you let her sniff you quietly, she quickly warms up and head bumps for attention when she is comfortable. Once she knows you will give her love, she is very affectionate and purrs like crazy while kneading her little paws.
A little overweight, Isabella would like a home that would help her lose some weight with low-fat canned food and limited meals in between lap cuddling. Isabella has been at the shelter since October and can’t figure out why everyone keeps passing up such a beautiful little lady who still has many more years to give.
If you’re interested in adopting or meeting Isabella, you can visit her at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter at the following times:
Tuesday - Friday: 12 noon – 7 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
4500 West Ox Road, Fairfax, Virginia 22030
