Ella is a complex lady who knows her own mind. She's quietly confident and not easily startled, though also not easily impressed. She's not keen on uninvited attention, though will accept affection in tiny doses. She prefers a chin scratch to being pet, and will meow or often swat/bite to let you know when attention is unwanted.

Despite liking her personal space, Ella loves to lay on her humans. She's happy to stay in one spot for hours, until you finally have to get off the couch! She also likes laying on things that belong to her foster humans. If you leave a sweatshirt or backpack on the floor or a couch, she might adopt it as her own until further notice.

Her favourite thing of all is wet food. When she thinks it's time to be fed again (even if it's early!) she will visit her foster mom and quietly make her presence known with her unwavering gaze. She also loves a good stretch and using her favourite cardboard scratcher.

Ella would do well as an only cat in a quiet home where her people understand she needs to set her own boundaries. For which she'll reward them with the occasional head rub and a shining example of how to snooze the day away.

As a senior cat, Ella requires yearly bloodwork to monitor her ongoing health and her next test is due in August 2024. Ella has early renal disease and will need to be on a lifelong renal diet to manage her condition. Ella is negative for FIV and FeLV. Like all ACR cats, Ella has been treated for fleas and parasites.

Ella's adoption fee is covered by a generous donation from Mowgli in celebration of finding his forever home!
