Nelly Dancy

Nelly Dancy has begun sticking her tongue out lately. Is she showing her opinion of the flashy box? Nelly has a very expressive face and it's always easy to tell what she is feeling. She was adopted into her forever home in November of 2008 when her previous family was moving and didn't want to, or couldn't, take her along. She fit in easily with the other cats and was very welcoming to Anakin when he came along. Nelly is full of energy and is usually up to something. She loves to attack toes and toys. Nelly is fascinated by the Outdoors and will try to sneak outside every time she spots an open door. Last summer she succeeded in getting out and made a beeline for a mountain ash tree in the yard. She climbed up to the very top in her bid to get to stay outside for a while. This ploy succeeded, at least for a while. She wouldn't come down and someone had to climb up a ladder to reach her.

                                                 One day Nelly sneaked outside.
                                                 She climbed to the top of a tree to hide.
                                                         Her humans saw her --
                                                         It caused a bother,
                                                But they got her down and back safe inside.

How wonderful that you took her when people moving could not keep her. Nelly with the tongue out reminds me of a few of ours who do that. And your limericks are so sweet and clever!


Anyone else reading this - please visit my blog about a colony of abandoned/feral cats near my home. There will be stories there as time goes on that could inspire and inform anyone you know who is helping or plans to help homeless cats anywhere.

Thank you,

Talk to Your Angels

Nelly is a cutie indeed & she can stick her tongue out at us any old time!

Karen Jo - I appologize about not understanding that none of the cats you write about are yours. I tend to just read the posts, not the whole blog.

thanks for the clarity!
