Bell, a domestic shorthair, was one frightened little girl when she came to the shelter. But this adorable, shiny black, bright-eyed, very feminine feline has come a long way. She now allows people to pet her and loves it! She feels safe in her cage, loves watching all the other cats and should be placed with other cats in the household.

Bell is medium-sized, is in excellent condition, has tested negative for FIV and FeLV, is up-to-date on all shots, and has been spayed and house-trained. She is not going to be a lap cat, but may eventually come around. She needs a chance to be with adopters who are patient and understanding. 

Pip, a domestic shorthair, lives up to this name. This terrific orange tabby will make a pip of a pet. Sweet, friendly, lovable and affectionate, Pip was surrendered by his family due to bad allergies. 

Just under a year old, he’s house-trained, up-to-date on his shots and neutered and has tested negative FIV and FeLV. Pip loves attention and will be placed in a home where he will get lots and lots of it, with owners who are allergy-free.

If you are interested in Bell or Pip, you can meet them and fill out an adoption application at the Marblehead Animal Shelter, 44 Village St., on Mondays and Thursdays from 4 to 6:30 p.m., Tuesdays from 6 to 8 p.m., Fridays from 5 to 7 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m.
