Nellie's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Nellie's Story...
Nellie is a beautiful cat who is very easy going and independent. She is not a needy girl - just hangs around, does her own thing, and occasionally plays with her toy mouse, and if you have a laser light, that gets her going too! She absolutely LOVES finding a sunny spot to stretch out and take a nap…that is the best!
Nellie likes to be picked up high on a shoulder for a good head rub. She also likes to take naps on her foster Mom’s nap in the evening.

Nellie is a pretty mellow girl who would do fine in a home by herself, or better yet with one of the other foster cats that she already knows. Or, if you already have a cat, she has been very receptive to new cats and kittens in her foster home, so she should be fine getting used to your cat too. Nellie is not a "dog-fan", so she would do best in a dog-free home.

Nellie’s estimated date of birth is 5/12/12. Her adoption fee of $115 includes: vet exam, distemper combo (FVRCP) vaccine, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay. She tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nellie, a Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
