NELSY – A1087385
Gone - 9-1-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 09/01/2016***Nelsy is a shy black and white domestic kitty brought in by her former owner because his fiance was allergic to her. This little girl did nothing wrong but try to please her owner. Her notes say that she has a hard time warming up to strangers but enjoyed the company of adults in the home and her cat sister. What must Nelsy think sitting in a cage trying to make herself fit into the shelter life when she is so shy to begin with? How will she get noticed among all of the meowing of other cats around her? Surely she must miss her home and her best furry friend! She’s rated for an experienced home without small children. Please decide to adopt or foster this black beauty tonight.
