11 year old • Female
Eliza has one pale foot plus one pale toe, a highlighted ruff and cheeks, and penetrating amber eyes, all set off exquisitely by the dark melange of the rest of her fur: black with marbling of ginger and honey, tiny dark front paws, and a very long, slender, dark tail.
Dainty and vigorous, Eliza is a good sport and willing to lend a tongue bath in a pinch. She is intrepid and intelligent, usually the first to explore any new place, the last to show fear, and often ready to appreciate a comfy napping spot. In addition, she is just darling.
She frequently commences very loud purring the moment she wakes up and sees her foster caregiver in the room. One might think she's composed primarily of brain, purr, and springs. Eliza has a unique voice but isn't afraid to use it to get your attention, usually to give her permission to jump into your lap.
Eliza was part of a litter born to a feral mother in Winston-Salem. She came into her foster home at about 9 weeks old along with two siblings, Jack and Jonathan. Two other siblings were adopted from the litter before coming to IAR. Although Eliza, Jack, and Jonathan were adopted together by the same family, they had to be returned recently after 9 years because of hard times. The three siblings are once again looking for forever homes!
