Ever since Nellie’s parents adopted her, they’ve noticed that she really, really likes food. She’s always struck them as being way more dog-like than cat-like because of how food-motivated she is, and they’ve even been able to use her love of treats to teach her a few tricks.
“She lives to eat instead of eating to live,” Allison Riebel, Nellie’s mom, told The Dodo. “She loves her cat food and she loves her cat treats. We use her love of snacks to practice learning tricks. She's become good at sit, high five and loves to play fetch.”
