Eldon's Story

If you’re looking for a handsome, sweet kitty, look no further than Eldon! This handsome boy has had quite the journey in his young life. Originally found as a stray, gentle Eldon was brought to PAWS with his mom and siblings. He was then adopted and in a home for a couple of months and was brought back to the shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. Now, he’s entertaining volunteers with his sweet and playful spirit while he awaits a loving forever home! He loves interactive play especially with wand toys, and gets along very well with other kitty cats! This boy can be a bit shy at first, but opens up once he gets comfortable in his surroundings. Are you a patient and loving cat lover looking for a new best friend? Eldon is your guy! 

This gorgeous boy would do best in a nice quiet home without young children and where he can slowly adapt to the new world around him. He’d love to be able to regularly interact with his new humans! If you already have a cat, Eldon would be thrilled to have a new buddy to play with and who can show him the ropes! It seems being around other kitties helps Eldon to come out of his shell faster and he turns into a confident kitty when he's around his feline friends.  If there's no other kitties in the home, then Eldon hopes his family will be home throughout the day, so he can receive the love and attention he craves so much!  We know that with the right, patient owner who can help sweet Eldon get comfortable in his new surroundings, this young boy will feel right at home! Come into the PAWS Chicago Lincoln Park Adoption Center today to meet Eldon. As soon as you look into his gorgeous eyes, you won’t be able to resist his charms! 

  • I get along very well with other felines.
  • Cuddles!  I love a good lap to curl up on.
  • I'm an explorer- I love to jump and climb!
  • I enjoy chasing after toy mice and feather toys.


  • I need a little extra time to warm up to people I don't know.
