9/2008 Elmo is about 7 years old. He is FeLV / FIV negative and vet current. He is an absolutely gorgeous fellow who is shy. He was found as a young kitten trailing after my neighbor's adult female cat. We later figured out she was his momma. We had to catch him is a kitty carrier with canned tuna when he was only about 8 weeks old. He had never been around people and was very scared of them. Since then he has become much more people oriented but he still gets scared in new situtations. I think if he has a home of his own with a person who undersatnds cats he may overcome his shyness and be a great companion. He loves to be petted and rubbed behind the ears.
