Eloise's Story

Say ‘hello’ to sweet Eloise!  Eloise is what most call a wallflower.  She is a bit shy when meeting new people, and would do best in an adults-only home where she is given enough time to come out of her shell.   With patience and some much-needed TLC, she is sure to bloom into the perfect feline playmate!  Eloise has spent some quality time in a foster home where her foster parents informed us that it only took a short while for her to trust them, and soon enough her primary hangout spot moved from under the bed to a much more public space in their home.  She is an active and independent girl who has no problem entertaining herself by swatting at long strings, ropes, or anything that dangles! When her foster parents would arrive home, Eloise would be patiently waiting there to greet them with the most adorable meows and purrs!  She also highly enjoys hopping right into their bed at night and can often be found snuggled right up next to her favorite humans in the morning. 

We have also learned that Eloise is a great hunter!  She loves to pounce and stalk any moving toy and will be yours forever if you bought her, her very own mice and wand toys!  If she could request one more thing it would be to have a tall cat condo or window sill where she can watch and listen as the birds fly by.  She does love receiving affection on her own terms and would do best with an experienced owner who can understand when Eloise has received enough interaction and pets for the time being.  Her sleek black coat and gorgeous golden eyes are bound to tug at your heart strings and she’ll win you over with her sweet demeanor.  You just might end up scooping her up and making her yours forever!
