**Nellie is located in Yorkville, IL**


Nellie is a first time mama of 3 kittens and is about 1-1 ½ yrs old. She came to us as a stray on the streets of Chicago when the cold winter hit. We didn’t know she was expecting kittens until her belly started to grow. Nellie is a very playful active cat who needs to be in a furr-ever home where she is the only pet or with one of her kittens. She had 3 kittens on Feb 2nd Ground Hogs Day (Oreo, Miracle, and Cookies) She loves people and loves to cuddle, she is a talker and will talk to you and keep you company, loves kids but is not happy with other pets in the home. Nellie is a great companion for anyone as long as she is the only pet or with one of her kittens.
