This is Elroy, about 3 years old. He adopted us a couple of years ago. He was following a group of raccoons that were feeding on our back porch. He was very standoffish for the first year, then started letting my wife and I pet and hold him. He's strictly an outdoor kitty, but we decided to bring him inside into my office because of a major wind storm due to hit this PM in the Seattle area (winds 30 - 60 mph). He was going to get a vet visit this morning, but we decided the vet and bad storm would totally freak him out. Vet in a couple of weeks though. We want to be able to allow him inside in bad weather. We have other strictly indoor cats.
A follow up to this post. We got Elroy into the vet yesterday. He was chipped, so we called the company that has the chip info, they in turn called the owner in the data file. The owner is now in a nursing home and was happy that Elroy (they called him Jack) is being taken care of. The old owner allowed us to transfer him into our names. We now, officially, have a new mouth to feed. Happy, happy, happy, joy, joy, joy. Oh, and he's older than we though, 6.5 years.
It's been an expensive year for the vet though, about $6K with IBD being diagnosed for the kitty in my avitar, along with issues with two other kitty's of ours. Oh well, you gotta love your kittens.
