Meet Eliza, a beautiful sleek black cat with the sharpest intellect in the neighborhood! Eliza, or Ellie as her foster parents like to call her, is extremely smart. Have you ever seen a cat who knows how to “sit”? Well, Eliza knows how to “sit pretty” too, which requires that she sit up on her hind legs before getting her treat. Smart cats like Eliza love to keep their minds and bodies stimulated through playtime and creative games; you could probably teach her a few more tricks too!
Eliza is a very personable cat. She loves to lounge around people, sometimes snuggling on lap, or between your legs. Her other favorite activities include hunting feather toys (she's a great hunter, and carries her "prey" around in her mouth after she catches it), scratching and ninja-climbing on her scratchy post, chasing balls around the house, and sleeping in her little kitty bed.
Eliza’s one quirk is that she does not like other cats, so she must go to a home where she’ll be the only kitty.
Cat Town is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, formed by long term volunteers from Oakland Animal Services (OAS) and other Bay Area shelters. We have partnered with OAS to take the cats who are least likely to do well in a shelter setting.
