Elmer came in to the SPCA as a kitten, covered in glue, hence his name. The SPCA staff loved him as he purred away while getting shaved and cleaned up.

At the SPCA, Elmer was famous for his sleek tuxedo coat and his one black toe (see right).  Elmer was a little shy–sometimes hiding under his bed in his cage–and was (unsurprisingly) skittish, especially around children. He had more social days, where he sought pettings. He was adopted and returned twice to the SPCA due to no fault of his own.

Elmer was adopted from the SPCA in December 2012 when he was about two years old.  Despite the resident cat not caring for him too much, Elmer has really blossomed in his forever home, enjoying his cat tree, feather toys, and outdoor time in the raspberry bushes.  He even gets along fairly well with the resident dog.

Like many shelter cats, Elmer didn’t show his true personality until months after he left the scary situation at the SPCA and finally felt like he was in his permanent home.  He has become an affectionate, talkative kitty who purrs frequently, likes to cuddle, and asks for belly rubs.  He even warms up to new people surprisingly fast and is much less skittish.  The word his family keeps using to describe him is “resilient”.

Elmer is quite happy in his new home, and so is his forever family!
