This sweet, shy, big boy gives off his unexpectedly high-pitched quiet mew, then lightly jumps up on the couch to knead with his big paws in anticipation of cuddles and treats. He works his right forepaw with delight, purring like a tiger the entire time. Until he knows you, Eliot may hide. You may have to reach to pet him in his place of safety, but he will be there hoping you do, because he’s addicted to love and wants to purr while you pet him, bunting you with his soft sweetness.
Eventually, he will come to meet you with his tail high and vibrating, anticipating a cuddle session on the couch. Outside, he was the only cat who let everybody pet him, even the boys who rode their bikes wildly on the sidewalk. He stayed half-hidden in the bushes but was always grateful for the attention. Now in his foster home, he doesn’t waste a minute of time with his caregiver. Much as he loves food, he will wait to eat until he has no companion he can rub while purring.
Eliot would be a good solo cat, a fine companion, a member of the family. Let him leave pawprints in your heart. Eliot is around 3 years old, FIV/FeLV negative, spayed, and up-to-date on all vaccinations. For more information or to meet Eliot, contact June at firstname.lastname@example.org or (718) 434-0577.
