Bobby was found as an abandoned kitten in a family member's backyard in Southern California. Bobby is a unique boy with a broken tail. When he was found as a kitten, his tail appeared to be broken in utero. His tail has a unique shape. The last couple inches of his tail is angled backward, like an "L" shape.
Bobby is a domestic long hair, and he is definitely a big boy. We suspect he is possibly mixed with Maine Coone. His size, markings, and very chatty personality lead us to believe this (but we have never formally tested him for his genetic makeup.) Bobby has spent his life as an indoor cat. He has managed to sneak out a handful of times (and returned, thankfully!), but I don't feel he is prepared to be an outside cat.
Bobby is a cat who will require time and patience. He is nervous and slow to trust. Once you earn his trust, he will love snuggling with you in bed and follow you around the house. He is also known to learn your bedtime, and if you do not go to bed when he believes it's time, he will distinctively meow at you and remind you of your time to rest.
Bobby is currently living in a house with a toddler and a newborn. We have found out the hard way that this big boy DOES NOT like small children. He is terrified of the children and spends all of his days hiding away in a closet. Before the children, he would enjoy his days lounging around the house. We want this boy to be happy again and be in a home that he can roam freely without worry.
Bobby has lived with multiple cats, but we can't say with confidence that he will be open to sharing a new home with a new cat. At this time, I feel he should be the king of the house with a patient owner who is willing to be slow and steady with him.
