My name is Penelope, but I am also known as Neli. My original family decided they didn't want me any more after living a good life indoors. Soon I found myself outside, alone, very scared and hungry. It took a while until I let someone rescue me because I didn't know who to trust. By that time, I was thin, flea-infested, and pretty beat up by other cats. A kind woman took me in and has nursed me back to health. I have even regained my plump belly! I have learned to trust people again and find that my favorite place is curled up on a warm lap. Although I love affection, I am also quite a playful and spunky girl! I would love to be someone's spoiled only-pet, but would also do well with 1-2 other animals. Too many animals makes me a bit nervous since I was picked on quite a bit outdoors. I would really prefer being an indoor-only cat where I can live out my years being safe from all the scary things that tried to hurt me. Could you be that special person or family for me?
