01/08/2018: "Waiting Over A Year Now…"
Well. Happy New Year. It’s just me, Nellie. I’m still here at the animal shelter where I was last year at this time. Why don’t you have a seat and explain to me why you don’t have room in your home for a sweet girl like me?
I’m elegant, well-mannered and easy-on-the-eye, if I do say so myself. It’s not like I’m asking for a new sports car or a side by side refrigerator freezer, you know. My needs are very simple. I’d just like a home of my own where I can curl up in front of the fire and help you read a book.
And maybe one of those aquariums, so I can watch the fishies. Perhaps the occasional can of sardines wouldn’t be too much to ask? And my own cozy bed? In pink? I know we’ll be best friends -" if you just take a chance on me.
I’ll be here. Waiting.
