Elliot had a very interesting story on how he was rescued (http://www.cleveland.com/lyndhurst-south-euclid/index.ssf/2016/05/big_daddy_elliott_fashioned_hi.html). He cleverly executed his own rescue by disguising himself as the nursing mom of a litter of kittens whom PAWS was trying to trap at the time. You see, it was dark outside. Elliot was injured, hungry, tired and in pain. He saw and smelled the food sitting at the back of a drop trap and decided “why not”. Since Elliot shared the same color and markings as the nursing mom, now known as Mama Emerald in PAWS, the trappers took Elliot in as the “nursing mom”. It did not take long however for the humans to recognize Elliot was nowhere close to be any kind of mom. But Elliot was so badly injured and sweet that the humans decided “why not, let’s find this fellow a home”. So here we are now, finding Elliot a home.
Judging from Elliot’s demeanor, we suspected he was once someone’s pet. He has the once bitten, twice shy complex but he loves to be petted by the human he trusts. He needs a quiet and mature home with an adopter who appreciates the process of building a bond with a sensitive, previously abandoned cat. Elliot will need some time to warm up to anyone but once he does, he is a total sweetie. So please check out Elliot if you are in the market for a special companion with a big heart.
