Eclipse came to the Sanctuary in the fall of 2017. 'The most handsome black cat the world has ever known' according to his fans, was found as a stray. Clearly some misadventure separated the noble creature from his kingdom, and he's been on the lookout for a new castle and court to preside over ever since.

But make no mistake, this is not a high-maintenance noble. Easy going and normally content, Eclipse will only meow loudly if he feels snubbed by the humans visiting his cattery. He quickly settles back down once chin rubs and soft pets have been administered. And Eclipse is handy, he can turn any surface (even and maybe especially if made of cardboard) into a throne, so no special furniture is required!

A cat and his throne.

Eclipse has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), but he's otherwise healthy and can even live with cats who don't have the virus. He will fit well into almost any loving family and instantly rule over not only your home but also your heart.
