Calm. Quiet. Reserved.

"Ha! Ha! I touched your heart! - Nelson Muntz from the Simpsons

Nelson is a timid guy who needs someone who is willing to put in some extra effort. He's a reserved fella who needs help realizing that he's safe and loved and is free to be the cat he was destined to be!

Nelson needs a quiet home with a loving and patient owner. Someone who can show him that they can be trusted and who can help him come out of his shell.

It's not known how Nelson does with other cats, dogs, or kids. Because he needs help building his confidence and is slower to trust, it'd probably be best if he went to a house without children or a house with older kids who can help him learn how to trust.

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
