Bobby’s story is a hard one to hear but important to share.
Bobby was found at a local business by the front door meowing ever so lightly for help. It seems he had merely escaped an attack by one or maybe more coyotes and was in very bad shape. His lip was torn and he had several bite marks. His tail was sheered down to the bone. All the while, Bobby was purring and loving up to us. We soon learned what a beautiful and forgiving disposition Bobby truly had. He is such a love-able cat, even after all he had been through.
We got Bobby to the veterinarians office and they were able to suture his lip, but it was discussed that the tail would need to be amputated. Bobby was sent home with the foster and within 2 days back to the veterinarian office for surgery to remove the tail. He was left with just a nub and there was uncertainty if the nub would survive.
10 days later, Bobby had a recheck visit. To our surprise, while awaiting his turn, a large dog came up to his crate! Instead of hissing and scratching, Bobby purred and try to rub up as if to love on the dog. What a forgiving little guy! We learned that Bobby would not have to have another surgery to which made us so happy that he would not have to endure yet more pain and suffering. Bobby is recovering well and although his tail is not pretty now, we are told that it will scar and may never get fur completely over it, but this is Bobby! He doesn’t need a tail to show his affection and unconditional love he has for anyone who is willing to love him back.
The Veterinarian believes that Bobby should be totally healed in another few weeks, but the fur that was shaved may take time to grow back. We believe once Bobby is able to be without his cone, he is going to be such a wonderful, loving spirited cat. He was already neutered and he will be updated on vaccines prior to adoption. We believed he must have belonged to someone, but no micro chip and no way of knowing what house division he may have come from.
Bobby is an approximate 3 year old Neutered tabby. We will accept adoption application at anytime on Bobby. Applications are on a first come basis. So far he seems to do well with all people, takes a little longer around very young children but good with older kids. He is still playful and loves attention.
His tail (nub) is healing very well and he now looks like a Bob Cat (lol), hence the name Bobby! He is a real joy to have around and would make a great companion for any home.
