- Ever heard of the boy named Sue? Meet the cat named Bella. Bella received his name when he was mistaken for a girl cat...turns out this not-so-little girl is actually a boy. Bella is secure enough in his masculinity that he still answers to his feminine name!
Bella, 6 years old, had to be given up after his previous owners moved away. He and his brother George are looking for a new forever home. Though preferable to remain a package deal, Dream Power is willing to work with prospective owners who can only adopt one.
Bella has spent time around kids and dogs, and gets along with both--so no need to worry about him fitting in!

Updated: 05/20/2012 - Tonight, Coloradans will be treated to a spectacular show in the sky courtesy of Mother Nature. An annular (ring-shaped) eclipse will be visible within a narrow corridor of the Earth's northern hemisphere--and though Colorado will not be in the path of the "ring of fire," it will be within the range to see a significant portion of the eclipse. For optimal viewing, NASA suggests standing under a tree to watch "the sight of a thousand ring-shaped sunbeams swaying back and forth on a grassy lawn or sidewalk." Though beautiful, eclipses can be dangerous for your eyes if not viewed properly. Before you cast your eyes to the sky, click here for tips to ensure a safe viewing experience. The eclipse will be visible beginning just before 6:30 p.m. and will peak at 7:30 p.m.
