Elmo came to Best Friends as a very shy stray, but lately, this big, mellow boy has been getting braver when it comes to accepting human affection.
He gets along great with other cats, and he's always wearing a dapper tuxedo.
Born in 1999, Elmo is long overdue for a chance to meet someone. If you let him blossom in his own sweet time, he promises to be a nice, soft presence in your home.
