When we got Elvis at SAFE Haven, they recommended having him stay in a small area to let him acclimate to his new surroundings. So we put him in a small utility room and took chairs in to sit with him for a while. After less than 15 minutes he clearly was bored and wanted out so we opened the door. He immediately took a complete tour of his new home, room by room and returned to us a few minutes later and effectively said “this will do”.
He loves people. Our previous cat had just tolerated people. Elvis is a great cat!
