We were given a cat along with his vet record and discovered his 'name' was Eliot. Who the heck gives a cat that name?
But we continued to call him by that name, and he was the first (and only) cat who would come when we called that name. Huh. How about that? He would also answer when we called. He would Meow a 'hello' when we let him inside and he did expect a response from us, so we would.
