It was around May last summer while attending to cat ward that I met Bellatrix. She was far back in the darkest part of the kennel, ears flat against her head, and emitting a deep rumble from her chest. The moment I opened her kennel door she hissed at me, flying forward as if to say “Grrrr back off!” She had me at first hiss.
I brought her home to foster her, hoping to socialize her for her next home. There would never be another home because I fell in love with my spicy little panther. She is a total diva, shy at times, and more than willing to give her love. Adopting a shy, reluctant, girl was one of the best decisions I made. She is very loved by her fur brother and Cat dad.
