Pet of the Week 1/30 – Nellie

Meet Nellie, a 5 year-old domestic shorthair cat and our Animal Friends Pet of the Week!

Woah Nellie! This handsome gentleman came from a home that simply had too many cats, so he’s now enjoying some respite from the crowd while he looks for his new home. He is a very shy guy but has been working on gaining confidence with staff and volunteers.

Nellie would be happiest in a quiet, cat-savvy home where he can adjust at his pace while being given all the love and a nice place to nap. He might be able to live with another friendly feline, given the proper introductions. Nellie has some neurologic issues including limited vision, possible blindness and weakness on his right side, but that doesn’t mean he can’t live a relatively normal life!

Nellie is one of Yana’s “Special” Felines which means his requested adoption donation has been underwritten and he will be sent home with an individualized starter kit of supplies and other support based on his unique needs. Come and get to know Nellie today!
