Elmer was brought to Homeward Bound after being found in a ditch on the side of the road by one of our volunteers.  When he first came to the shelter after such a rough start, Elmer was understandably shy and timid around strangers.  Since he’s been here however, he has really come out of his shell and blossomed into a total lovebug!  He will love you even more if you have catnip- Elmer LOVES his catnip!  He lives peacefully in a community room with some of our other cats and does really well with them. Elmer is going to need a family who will provide him with the patience he needs to feel comfortable in a new environment and around new people.  We think once he feels safe, he will make a great companion for many people!
