Facts about Miss Nelly

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Miss Nelly was found by a loving veterinarian in March of 2016, hungry and injured. The Dr. wanted to TNR, but found that she also had an injured paw. After spay surgery and caring for her bite wound, Miss Nelly's feral nature softened and she became responsive to pets and kisses on the face. She loves to play with her fuzzy mice, a laser toy and scratching boards. While Miss Nelly has acclimated to being inside (she especially loves her cat bed!), she doesn't get along well with other cats, likely because she had to fend for herself outside. She will be a very good cat for someone with experience, who can keep her as the one and only cat in the household. Miss Nelly has a beautiful black and white coat and is so lovable that the Dr. who undertook her rescue doesn't want to re-release her outside. Won't you consider giving this girl a safe forever home?
