Edroy and Kari

Name: Edroy
Age: 4

" [His name is] Edroy, and yes he is named after someone or something, but I've gotten tired of trying to explain it.  

I adopted him in July 2012 from the ARL.  When I saw his picture online I knew I wanted to adopt him, I traveled out to the shelter and looked all over for him.  I had to ask the front desk where to find him and they informed me that just 45 minutes prior he and his two siblings were taken to the kitty cold ward as they had become sick.  They told me to keep checking the website and usually in about 10 days the kitties with colds are back up for adoption.  I checked the website nearly 80 times a day for several days and even went back into the shelter to make sure he was still alive and doing well.  Several more days passed and his little picture popped back up on the website once again and I dropped everything to run out to meet him.  He was a great little kitten, so much so that his adoption papers even noted "Really Good Kitten" on them, and he went home with me that night.

He's a very smart cat and enjoys puzzle games to get his treats.  He also can tell time very well and knows exactly when it's time for food, he knows what the word means as well.  He knows if he wants me to get out of bed that he'd better lick my face repeatedly.  He loves to play with the laser, in his kitten cube, with various catnip toys and even fetches toys that are thrown for him.  He likes only his mom for the most part, even though all the girls want to pet him, he's a big mama's boy.  He also takes the nosiest, slurp-iest baths known to cat-kind."
