Facts about Elmo

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 101500
  • Hair: Unknown

Elmo is available for our "better with age" adoption fee of $50.



BIG FAN OF: Playing with anything crinkly, being brushed on his back and lying in the sun.



NOT A FAN OF: A lot of attention and petting. He likes a little bit, but he can get overstimulated with too much. He's also not a fan of having his belly touched.



SPECIAL FEATURES: Elmo is a super friendly guy who will give head bumps and flop over in front of you when he wants some attention. He loves playing with crinkly things, string-type toys and boxes. He has an adorable trill when he talks to you and will greet you when you come home or enter the room. Once he gets to know you, he has a great personality!



OTHER REASONS HE'S SPECIAL: He is front-declawed.



DREAM HOME: A laid-back, calmer and patient family with more mature family members who will give him time to connect with them and develop a bond. He has lived with other cats, but may need time to get used to new ones, so plan on a slow introduction process if you have resident felines.



Elmo is participating in our Shelter Cat Getaway program -- a program designed to give cats a vacation from the shelter and let them enjoy home life while they wait to be adopted. While vacation is fun, there really is no place like home, so please consider adopting one of these deserving cats! To learn more about Elmo, or schedule a time to meet him, please contact Carol at cgriglione@arl-iowa.org or Betsy at bsalmon@arl-iowa.org.
