Eli


Aren't my whiskers impressive?

Eli is one half of my only pair of siblings, being the brother of Muffin. He had some pretty horrid bouts of URI, including a raging case of cacli that left blisters all over his tongue,  when he was a kitten.  The URI scarred both of his tear ducts and because of that he always has black debris all over his face and in his ears. Fortunately, it is not nearly as bad now as it has been in the past due to in part to some laser treatments to his eyes.

He is a very independant kitty. He hasn't picked a human but will show up whenever he is in the mood for some attention and demand it.  When he gets in a particular mood he will ask for belly rubs, which always makes me happy.

Eli is my other kitty with urinary issues. Fortunately, he has been pretty stable since he was first diagnosed all of those years ago, only having a few issues during times of stress.  Overall he is pretty healthy. He has a couple of lumps on his legs but the vet assures me they are just fatty deposits and there is no need to remove them.

Eli also has the most endearing habit of squeaking instead of meowing.  This has earned him the nickname of Squeaky,  When we see him, we call out "Squeaky!!" (much like the Norm cheer from Cheers) and he squeaks back at us.
