Ellie is very sweet, affectionate, and extra gentle. She is a shy kitty who gets nervous in new places, filled with noises and people she doesn’t know. She was a wonderful mother to her 3 babies who she had at a young age, after being dumped in the desert while very pregnant, but she found a shelter in a street drainage on Loop 202 where she delivered and cared for her babies where she was surrounded by desert full of predators, right on extremely busy street until they were rescued. She is a hardcore mama that survived the hot summer with little food and water and saved all her babies as well. Mom of the year award goes to Ellie! She is ready now for her forever home where she can live her life save and loved. Because of her past she is very timid and will need a special family that understands her needs and will give her patience to adjust at her own pace. She would do best in a home with no kids.
