"When I'm not being held I love it here in my kennel where I flop around in my hammock!"

My foster parents joke that I have Stockholm syndrome because I love it in my cage so much I volunteer to go back in it.  The hammock is just that cool.

This is how I like to be held- the floppy baby!

Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-part feral-cat rescue

Birthday:
April 4th 2011

Coloration:
Tabby and White

Likes:
Gazing lovingly into his holder's eyes, being held, being brushed, being petted, and jumping around like a monkey in his cage.

Pet-Peeves:
Being startled, when he can't catch his dangly fish toy, or when he tries so hard to catch his fish toy he gets it caught around a leg and needs rescuing

Favorite Toy:
His dangly fish, with occasional swats at little balls, especially if someone moves them for him.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Passed out in someone's arms or in his hammock

Favorite Food:
Bob goes nuts for any kitten food and appreciates most cat treats, but mostly we tried to reward him with cuddles.

Skills:
He can flip around his cage with amazing agility but no grace or accuracy, and for a cat that is easilly startled and shy of new people or situations he goes into cuddle mode shockingly easilly. He's a kitten of many contrasts!

Dwells:
indoors

Arrival Story:
Bob was being fostered with his brother and sister in another home and was standing out as the shyest and most likely to cower behind his braver siblings, so he came to us for some intense one-on-one foster therapy! Fortunately Bob is super submissive and super sweet. We ignored his first little hiss, picked him up, and had him purring and going limp in our arms within minutes. He's a pleasure to work with and is quickly gaining confidence so he can more easily share his incredible cuddles with the world! He is at Save-a-Pet in Grayslake now but we still visit him and continue to champion his cause to try and get him into the best home possible as soon as possible.

Lives Remaining:
8 of 9

Bob is...:
Already neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and micro-chipped! His adoption fee is $75

I've Been On Catster Since:
August 19th 2011 More than 3 years!

My Diary


It finally happened!

The news my foster family has been waiting to hear since their hearts broke when I went away to Save-a-Pet shelter so many months ago- I've find my forever home! My foster family were understandably focused on their cat Stormy who was suddenly very ill and sadly went the the Bridge on February 29th, but they missed a happy miracle on February 28th when I went home! It sure took me long enough, but finally a special lady saw my potential and sure enough 3 hours in my new home I was lounging comfortably on the furniture and making my signature smug grin! She says I'm like a bowl of jelly- that must be a compliment on my lack of spine? I didn't get to go with my sister Zeary but it's okay- I will have some new adoptive feline siblings in my new home and my foster family suspected that me and Zeary were so different (I'm gentle, pretty calm, and get most of my energy out playing on my own- she's kinda feisty and loves nothing more than to play with people's hands or dangling hair) that the best home for me would probably not be a great match for her. Now she's free to look for a home with someone looking for a playful kitten type without the giant laid-back "jelly" brother bogging her down.

I'm really happy. My new mommy just loves me and tucks me in my very own little bed. I've got a bright future ahead of me! Wish me luck integrating with my new kitty siblings? I did really well with my foster aunt Tigger and foster uncle Max who are not known to appreciate kittens, and am probably the least pestering-of-older-cats kitten my foster parents ever worked with. Hopefully my new family won't be put off by my big bruiser physique and will see me for the gentle giant I really am!

 

Now known as...

"Teary!" Actually I was nicknamed Teary in my first foster home because of the way my markings kind of drip down past the inner corners of my eyes. So at least I'm used to being called "Teary" already. My lovely sister who started out "Noir" and became "Beauty" is now called "Zeary" to compliment me! We've been back in isolation here at Save-a-Pet because unfortunately our first round of de-worming didn't quite kill off all of the roundworms in one of us- but now we're all better and on display in the kitten room with lots of other young kitties. Please come by and meet us!

 

Change of Plans

I'm not going to attend an adoption event this weekend with my sister Beauty. I'm going to go move in with her! We'll be at Save-a-Pet in Grayslake, a wonderful no-kill shelter where we'll be seen by lots of prospective adopters every day! I'm not sure if I'll be allowed to just be "Bob" there since there are soooo many cats- my foster mom will let everyone know if they give me a name alteration so people can ask to meet me! Wish me luck on this new adventure! It's a little scary leaving my nice comfortable foster home but it's a step closer to finding that perfect forever home!
