Echo is an amazing, especially sweet, friendly, very affectionate cat in the prime of life. He is curious yet calm, and smart. Anyone lucky enough to make Echo part of his or her family will be blessed with a loving and devoted companion. To Echo, there is nothing better than taking a nap on your bed or following you from room to room. He is also quick to jump on the bed, snuggle, purr when you pet him, stretch, and sleep near his family. Occasionally, Echo will even engage you in a good conversation, especially when it’s time to eat or get a treat. He is very food-motivated and easily trained. He always uses the litter box. He always scratches the scratching pad or the cat condos, and never scratches the furniture. He even lets me trim the sharp points of his claws without a fuss. Most of all, he enjoys being on your chest, lying across your legs, sitting on your lap, or spooning with his back against your torso. He’s one of the best cats I’ve fostered!
Echo has very beautiful markings. He has a gorgeous, soft coat of fur, and he’s very good at grooming himself. He enjoys being combed and brushed. He is mostly black and has a white nose, chin, neck, chest, and belly, with 4 white paws. And then, there are his eyes — his expressive eyes simply draw you in. They are gorgeous and shine with all the great warmth and love Echo has to give.
Echo was found with a large neck wound in Echo Park. Yes, that’s where his name came from! The vet stitched him up and he recovered quickly. He didn’t have a microchip, and his owner couldn’t be found. While he was recovering at a K-R staff member’s home, he ignored most of her cats but he didn’t get along with a couple of male cats; he was okay with a few female cats. So he was placed with another foster mom who had no other cats. He truly flourished being an “only” in a new foster setting.
He has tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). FIV is not a big deal; given proper care and attention, an FIV+ cat will live the same lifespan as an FIV negative cat. The disease is extremely hard to transmit from cat to cat, requiring direct blood contact (typically from a deep puncture wound). It is not transmissable to humans.

It is time to give Echo a wonderful, forever home he so richly deserves. That home must not include another cat, dog, or kids. The BEST and ONLY scenario for Echo would be as the only pet in the family, and the center of attention.
