Staff pet profile - Eli!

This is our eldest: Eli.  He has been with our family for the longest and rules the home.  Althought I have had him since he was 8 weeks old, I have know him since he was born.  Our receptionist Jennifer was fostering a pregnant mom for the Burlingtin Humane Society at that time and her momma cat "Samantha"  gave birth to 3 cute little grey kittens, 1 cute black kitten, and this beautiful little Brown Tabby with White.  He was such an unusual colour compared to the rest of the family that he stood out right away.  I visited as often as possible and watched him grow up and become the little scamp that won my heart.  I think the day I was sure that he was coming home with me was when, at 3 weeks of age, I took a picture of him nursing on his mom.  He looked up at me from over her tummy and gave me a great big hiss and I thought it was the cutest thing I had ever seen.  Well, as you can imagine, that hiss was an indication of the rocky road that we would travel together over the years.  However, Eli has since become a very sweet cat with a great personality.  He is a very big part of the family and I really don't know what we would do without him.
