Some cats are just effortlessly cool. Nels is one of those cats. He has hipster good looks, and is friendly and confident. If he were a person, Nels would be the guy who backpacked around Europe, eats locally sourced produce, knows the guitar player from your favorite band, and always throws the best parties.

As a cat, Nels is the guy who welcomes all of the volunteers, chatting away. He loves to run and chase, and never met a wand toy he didn’t adore. After playtime, Nels will curl up on the chair next to you. Whatever “it” is, Nels has it! He is a charmer, and color us charmed.

Nels has shown some territorial behavior with other cats, so he would do best as your one and only. But if you are looking for a super cool buddy, contact and ask for an appointment to meet Nels.


Nels is FIV positive, but that does not mean they cannot live long and happy life. Please click here for information on FIV.
