Ernest is trained to use scratching post very well!

Hello everyone, my name is Ernest and I am a handsome, about 3 years old, silver/gray tabby boy, with a very expressive gorgeous green eyes, I love to sit next to people and get engaged into their lives, I like to help you read a newspaper, watch TV shows or help you do your work on PC or perhaps posting pictures of me on Facebook.

I am very smart, intelligent guy, I respond when you call me, running to you to see if maybe its time to get brushed or eat or just relax on a couch or play. I love getting brushed.

You see, the best thing about me that I have a great level of energy where I will relax and take good naps, which are very important for cats, you know and once you get home from work, I run to the door to greet you and rub on your legs, and give you few head butts and follow you around the house and did I tell you I can talk with my eyes I know sounds strange but when you talk to me I look at you with my big green eyes and believe me I know what you are talking about.

Did you know, I am also a "polydactyl" cat, I have 6 toes on my front feet, just like Ernest Hemingway's cats. Check out a picture of my fabilous paw with 6 toes here.

Many years ago Ernest Hemingway was given a six-toed cat by a ship's captain.
The story tells that Polydactyl cats have been extremely popular as ship's cats and was brought to America from Britain, and having extra toes allowed cats to hold better to the ship during long months of being in the rocking Ocean.

Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway was a famous aficionado of polydactyl cats, after being first given a six-toed cat by a ship's captain. Upon Hemingway's death in 1961, his former home in Key West, Florida, became a museum and a home for his cats, and it currently houses approximately fifty descendants of his cats (about half of which are polydactyl). Because of his love for these animals, polydactyl cats are sometimes referred to as "Hemingway Cats".

To sum everything up, I am also a very gentle cat who just loves people so much.

I have very good manners, litter box trained, use my scratching pad and up-to date on all shots (Distemper, Rabies), neutered, tested negative for FIV/FeLV as well as microchiped.

Call my foster mom to learn more about me and meet me, I am really an awesome cat with a dog alike personality: My foster mom snapped few pictures of me and a video, checked it out here. I am looking good, don't you think?!
