Hi! I'm Elliot. I was rescued from a hoarding situation in Cheyenne April 30, 2016. My foster family took me in 3 weeks ago, after I got a little cage crazy at an adoption location. I'm glad they did, because I got to get use to all of the noises and humans in a more normal house.At first I was afraid of the humans when they would move towards me and would startle at little noises.They tried to befriend me separate from the other resident cats so that I could get used to people, but Iwas pretty scared until I saw one of the other cats and I immediately came out from where I was hiding and made happy chirpy sounds. I now run loose with all of the other kitties (I have 8 foster feline friends and 2 big doggies - plus they have been baby-sitting 2 big doggies this week!) My kitty friends taught me that humans are pretty cool. I now get excited and chirp when a hand reaches out to pet me and I have found my happy purr machine. I also like to shadow the humans. If they go to the bathroom, I lay a couple of feet from them and watch them. If they go to the kitchen I follow them there. Sometimes they have to dodge tripping on me. I am quite curious about these bipedal creatures.

I am still not sure about being held. It makes me panic. But, it's only a few weeks and with some more careful study of human ways I can determine whether being held is safe. I love it when the humans play fishing pole games with me. I am quite exuberant. And I adore other kitties. I really want a forever home with other kitties. We play tag, hide-and- seek, and wrestle. I am very easy going. When the head kitties would hiss at me or teach me boundaries I responded with respect. I never hiss back. Now no kitties discipline me since I'm such a good listener. I just want to be friends with everyone. I am not afraid of dogs in the least! I will rub up against them and sniff noses. I am an excellent litter box user. I am learning about the scratching posts and cat condo. I am learning to not scratch household things. My foster mommy will cut my nails when I go to my forever home and she can teach my new family how to do it if needed. I love to carry soft toys in my mouth while running around acting tough. I like to run through the crunchy cat tunnel and play with the puzzle game and love the ball racer track. I'm just all fun! It makes photographing me challenging since I like to be on the move.

Because I am not sure about being squeezed I would prefer a home without young children. I will make you laugh with my silliness. I promise to continue adjusting to home life. I have come such a long way in 3 weeks! In my photos you can see one of me loving my human rub down. Another of me the lounging with my foster sister Itsy. One of me in a cupboard. And finally, my dishwasher investigation! I had never heard one before, but my curiosity is much stronger than my trepidation. However, I still had to approach with caution. I was startled and ran away when it changed cycles, but I came right back. And, I was really excited to see the dishes being unloaded when it was done. What a funny thing! My foster siblings were so puzzled by my investigatory quest.
