Meet Nellie

Nellie is around 10 months old. She is a little timid with people but loves other cats!! She is very friendly once she gets to know you and wants to be pet ALL day!

Upon arrival, Nellie tested positive for Leukemia. After sending out for some very detailed and expensive testing we received some absolutely amazing news. The blood test showed that Nellie has absolutely no signs of the leukemia virus in her blood. Which means her body basically fought off the virus and she's a regular young cat that just needs an understanding home. Why do we say understanding? Because nothing is ever 100 percent accurate, right? Even a cat that tests negative, never 100 percent accurate either. We just want to make certain everyone is safe and protected. Bottom line.

We think she would definitely do best with another confident cat in the home. Just to be extra cautious, the cat should be vaccinated for leukemia.
