Facts about Eli

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Eli is an adorable gray kitty who was found wandering in the road. He was brought in for euthanasia because he is blind, but we just couldn't put down a cat this sweet. He is very personable, confident and willing to explore new areas despite his lack of vision, negative for feline leukemia and FIV, and had normal blood work.

Dr. Kaiser at Animal Eye Clinic of Spokane checked him over, and diagnosed advanced retinal degeneration. This is a genetic non-painful, but non-reversible blindness in which the light sensing cells at the back of the eye progressively die off. Because of his total blindness, Eli will need an indoor only home.

Eli loves to be petted and talked to, but is nervous about being picked up (probably because he can't see how far away he is from the floor). He shows no fear of dogs as long as they are quiet (and he'll head butt and rub on them if they let him), and no aggression toward other cats despite being an intact tom when he was brought in. He has been neutered and vaccinated, and is ready to go to a new home.

If you would like more information about adopting Eli, or to make a donation toward his care, please contact Jes at or 509-690-7343.

About Wayward Creatures Relief Agency

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small operation, started by co-workers at a veterinary clinic to assist animals which were abandoned at their clinic. Sadly, this is a fairly common problem, and many veterinary clinics have had their share of boxes of kittens left on the front step. We primarily foster, treat, and re-home animals which are released to us for medical or financial reasons.

All animals posted here are fostered in a home; we don't have a shelter facility. Because of this, we are unfortunately unable to take on very many animals at once, and will selectively take in animals that need more individual care, attention, and treatment than is available at a more standard shelter facility. All funding for these efforts comes from our own pockets or private donations; we are not government subsidized, nor do we receive grants. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, so any donations are tax-deductible and much appreciated!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We don't have a shelter facility; each animal is placed in a foster home. Please contact the foster home to arrange to meet the pet you're interested in.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process is tailored to the individual animal. Please contact the foster home listed on each animal's description for specific information.

We have a basic application/adoption form to fill out, and ask for a donation based on the amount of money we've put into the individual animal. Many of our rescues have had extensive veterinary work before being made available for adoption, so we do not have a standard fee.
