Thank you for all of the compliments.
Elijah is ten years old. He is sweet and gentle with everyone; human, canine or feline. He is one of the few cats I've owned that I actually got to pick out for myself. I chose him out of his litter before his eyes opened, but waited until he was seven weeks old to bring him home. The people that owned his mother would not keep the kittens past that age and I had to argue with them for that extra week. (They wanted to 'get rid' of the kittens at six weeks.)
