This is Ezekiel. He is a Russian blue mix, about one year old. More about how he got his name later, but he likes to go by 'Zeke' or 'Z.' We don't know how he came to be on his own, but like so many other poor souls, he was barely surviving. He looked like a walking skeleton on four legs, yet he slowly put one paw in front of the other in order to go up to each car that pulled up to the dock looking for food and perhaps a home. He was scooped up and taken to a vet who stated that only a strong will had kept this starving cat alive. Thus the name 'Ezekiel' which means strength. The person who adopts Zeke will need to be patient as he builds trust. He is wary and startles easily, but he does attach himself strongly to 'his people.' He is playful. He enjoys it when you (his person) sit down a few feet away from him. He then rolls back and forth towards you until he finally touches you. At this time, Zeke will probably do better with a single person or couple.
