Nelly's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Nelly's Story...
Nelly and her kittens, Nicole and Noelle, were in the New Kent shelter and ran out of time, so they were transferred to Cat Rescue. Nelly has been spayed now and is ready for a new home. Nelly is a happy, feisty, playful girl who loves toys, running, and scratching on her cardboard scratchers. She can be a bully around shy or gentle cats, so she's pretty much a tomboy. Someone taught her to play much too rough, so we'll let you know the best ways to keep letting her know she needs to play more gently, and in our training she IS responsive and smart enough to learn better manners about being rough. If you like a lively, playful, silly cat, that's Nelly. Because she had urinary crystals at one point, keep her on Purina One Urinary Tract Health and that's ALL -- it keeps everything perfect for her!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nelly, a Chesapeake Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Chesapeake, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chesapeake.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chesapeake already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chesapeake breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chesapeake paves the way for another one to be saved.
