Nice Quiet Cat Looking for a Nice Quiet Home

When Eden looks at you straight on, his facial markings kind of look like a "Peace" sign. I think that's pretty appropriate, because he's a sweet guy searching for peace, love and understanding. You see, Eden came to us from a home where yelling, screaming and discord were the norm. As a result, when Eden first arrived at PAWS, he wasn't sure whether or not he could trust the volunteers or staff members here. We'd often find him hiding in his litter box, warily watching us as we moved about the room. With sadness and concern, Tracey and I wondered if Eden would ever feel comfortable around people...

That's why I'm especially excited to report that Eden has made tremendous strides since he's been at PAWS. Once he got past all of the new sights (other cats? yikes!), smells (other cats? yikes!!!), and sounds (other cats? and dogs, too? YIKES!), he was able to realize that the humans in this place spoke gently, moved slowly, and offered great things like love, pets ... and food!

Over the last month or so, Eden and I have struck up quite the friendship, and we both enjoy our times together. Eden loves being talked to softly and is a huge fan of being pet. Every now and then, he even throws in a few "head-butts" to show his appreciation. This handsome fellow is about 4 years old, neutered, and current on his vaccines. He's grown so much, and I know he'll be a great and loyal friend for the human who adopts him. If you've got a quiet home with no other pets or small children, Eden might just be the cat for you.

Peace out!
