Nelly is not a lap cat but with the right home perhaps she could become a lap cat. Do you have a quiet home, one you would share with a shy girl who needs to blossom where planted? Nelly is not like Nelly Olsen of “Little House on the Prarie” She has a good heart, a good mind and plenty of love to pass around. She is not selfish, whiny or mean, she loves everyone she meets. Nelly would thrive in a quiet home, no small children, no dogs and calm people.
