Pittsburgh Pet of the Week: Nellie

This shy guy is looking for a loving home to enjoy his treats and naps in. Meet him at Animal Friends!
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Sex: Male
Age: 5.5 years
Weight: 9.6 pounds

Arrived: October 11, 2022

Woah Nellie! This handsome gentleman came to us from a home that simply had too many cats, so he’s now enjoying some respite from the crowd while he looks for his new home. He is a very shy guy but has been working on gaining confidence with staff and volunteers. Nellie will come to his door for finger sniffs and treats as long as nobody moves too quickly. His new family will need to give him regular play sessions and lots of positive reinforcement to help him continue his progress toward becoming a companion. Nellie would be happiest in a quiet, cat-savvy home where he can adjust at his pace while being given all the love and a nice place to nap. He might be able to live with another friendly feline, given the proper introductions. Nellie has some neurologic issues including limited vision, possible blindness and weakness on his right side, but that doesn’t mean he can’t live a relatively normal life! Nellie is one of “Yana’s Special Felines,” which means his requested adoption donation has been underwritten and he will be sent home with an individualized starter kit of supplies and other support based on his unique needs.

Please read our adoption guidelines and start your application before coming to meet one of our cats in person. A typical adoption can take up to an hour. Please visit at least one hour before closing if you plan to adopt that day.

Requested Adoption Donations
5 months or younger | $150
Adult older than 5 months | $100
Senior 10 years or older | $85
Twice as nice! When you adopt two cats from Animal Friends, we only request a single adoption donation.
