Nelly is one of our ferals.

She can generally be found up on top of the cages. Not only does she feel safe up there, as many ferals do, but she seems to actively enjoy the entertainment value of watching our comings and goings.

As she stares at you with curiosity in her big round eyes, it's hard to resist trying to engage with Nelly, perhaps reaching out slowly in hopes of touching even finger tip to nose. But no luck for me so far. She never hisses or swats at me as some of the less tame cats are inclined to do, just scurries away out of reach.

Someone who has apparently had much better luck with Nelly is Mario. Perhaps he can work the same relaxed cat love magic he's used to tame other ferals in the past.
