Nelson was found in Pullman wandering the alleys looking for food. He was very scared and hungry and eventually let us take him inside where he instantly settled in, happy to be off the streets. Nelson is still a little scared and timid and tends to hide at first, but he warms up quickly and becomes a perpetual purr-box when he settles into your arms. He is a loving kitty who just needs a little patience while he gets to know a new person. He was recently neutered and vaccinated, and tested neg/neg.
