This beautiful 6-year old young has been enjoying her life with her foster family. She came to the shelter shy and confused and has blossomed into an affectionate, confident and quirky gal. Her foster family tells us that she likes to lift one paw while contemplating mischief and when she wants your attention she will gently place her paw on you. She prefers to curl up next to your lap instead of on it but she will definitely want to snuggle in your bed with you at night.

Ella is deaf so she relies on physical cues to communicate. She has a very unique meow as she has no way to hear what she sounds like! She can be quite talkative as she gets used to new surroundings.

Overall, Ella is a mellow, affectionate love bug that would do best in a low energy household. She has not lived with other cats or dogs before but does seem to tolerate dogs that are respectful of her space.
