Nellie Bly’s foster writes: Nellie is named after the explorer journalist Nellie Bly because she’ll investigate every nook and cranny, sniff every shoe, and approach every stranger – for ear scratches. When she isn’t checking out the back of the fridge, she’ll be lounging on the couch. She’ll sit on my lap while I binge watch TV. She’s always purring unless she’s snoring. She also gets attached to whoever pets her most. When I’d get home, she’d be sitting by the door and follow me around the kitchen as I made dinner. You can’t help but get equally attached to her.
A volunteer writes: As I walked by her kennel on a busy afternoon, the lovely Nellie Bly was up on her hind legs, tapping at the glass door of her kennel with both paws. I didn’t dare turn down a request, well ok, demand, like that for attention, so I went to say hello. About 10 seconds after I started to pet her, she started purring so loud you could hear her across the room! Her previous owner said that she has been around children and is gentle and affectionate with them. She is friendly and outgoing with strangers, and is gentle and affectionate as well. Sounds like a real winner to me! We think she’d do great in a quieter household, she doesn’t like loud noises, where she can get all the attention she loves and needs. This, shall we say ‘more of her to love’ young lady could lose a pound or two. Shhh, don’t tell her I said that, just hurry on over to the Manhattan Care Center and see if you fall in love with Nellie Bly. Believe me, it’s hard not to.
