    You know the phrase "I thought nothing of it" can someone say "I felt nothing of it" ?
    It depends on your meaning of felt. Do you mean as an abstract noun (emotions; love, anger, passion, sadness) or a concrete noun (something physical)?

    If it's the abstract, I would say "I felt nothing for it" or "I felt nothing towards it" - determining what that "it" was of course.

    If you're going to use the concrete form, I would it's just clumsy grammar. S+V+N+Pr+N. Propositions doesn't really go in between two nouns such as nothing and it.
