GuelphToday, in partnership with the Guelph Humane Society, brings you this feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.
Hi, my name is Nelson! Behind those dashingly handsome and thoughtful eyes, I am a super sweet boy! I have a silly, bright personality, and every day I bring a smile to the faces of those around me.
I started out my life in a barn, and now I’ve happily become a house cat. I can be a little nervous when there is a lot going on, but I’m learning something new everyday. I’ve really come out of my shell since I first came to GHS, and I can’t wait to continue to grow with my new family.
My new family should know that I have FIV, which just means my immune system isn’t quite as strong as other cats. I am looking for a family where I can be an indoor cat and enjoy my new lifestyle – who knew being inside had so many cozy nap spots?! I could live with another kitty friend (as long as they also have FIV), and I could make friends with a gentle dog.
Since I’ve come out my shell, I’ve been able to show just how playful and goofy I can be. I LOVE to play with my toys, and when I get the zoomies, watch how fast I can run! Everyday is so new and exciting for me – I love exploring, making new friends, and showing off more of my amazing personality. I can’t wait to meet my new family, we have so much playing to do!
The GHS contactless adoptions have been so successful – they have given over 700 pets a loving #HappyTail during COVID-19! Virtual and/or phone adoption meetings will happen by appointment only.
