Nelly (May 1993-June 2014)
Nelly came into our lives from the Feline Foundation of Greater Washington, FFGW. We had recently lost our beloved Molly, a thin black beauty at age of 15. So for some time I was looking for a little black girl, and then I saw her in a newspaper ad, so I answered it. I went to be introduced to the little black beauty in May of 1993, she was a dream. So I went back on Memorial Day to pick her up from Alexandria. Nelly and I drove home to Stafford from Alexandria, passing the motorcycle brigade of Rolling Thunder on I-95. She was absolute charmer, with her loud Siamese Meow when she wanted something or smelled chicken, pork chops, salmon or steak. She lived a long and we would hope a wonderful life for 21 years. But she too was ill with hyperthyroidism for two years prior to her death, quietly a month after Edward she went in her sleep. She was a such beauty in her day, but now she's in my heart.
