Ellie May is a very sweet cat. She is nervous around young children but loves people in general so I think she would warm up to them. She will greet you at the door to get her belly scratched. Moving stresses her out, (we are a military family so she has not enjoyed our moves) and she tends to have accidents when she is stressed or nervous. She needs someone that is going to not move around as much and can work with her on these issues.
