Miss Ellie is large and in charge. This calico beauty would like you to know three things about her.

1. She’s independent, she knows what she likes, and she reserves the right to change her mind. She will probably be a lap cat at times, but at other times she will want to do her own thing and she will make that decision. Okay, that’s more than three things already, but we’re counting it as one. It’s all under the “Humans shall be her loyal subjects” category. They must accept her decisions and like them.
2. Ellie doesn’t seem to care much about other cats. If they are also willing to be loyal subjects, it’s probably going to be ok. She probably will not want to interact much with the commoners.
3. Ellie is 6 years old and has been at the shelter since May. She previously lived in another home. She’s 15 pounds of beautiful cat with her own agenda and she would love to live in a home again where she can be the queen.

Ellie is taking applications for servants, I mean human companions, now. If you would like to meet her, call the shelter at 743-8679. Get pre-approved by filling out an application at www.responsiblepetcare.org/cats.
