    We found Bob as a stray and took him to the shelter (MCAS) about a month ago. A few weeks later, the shelter called as we requested they do if he was at risk of being euthanized. Bob was considered unadoptable because he was paralyzed with fear while at the shelter. Hours later, after we picked him up, Bob was curled up beside me on the couch asking for a belly rub. This sweet, belly-rub loving cat needs a forever home. Could it be yours? All About Bob Bob is a very sweet, generally laidback cat. He's very food and affection motivated - loves wet food and belly rubs! He enjoys a balance of play and relaxation. Stringy cat dancer toys are by ... (Read More)far his favorite, though he likes his mouse toy when no one can play with him. Loud sounds and sudden movements by people, other animals or objects do spook him. He will hide, but once reassured by the voice of someone he trusts (ie. person feeding him his wet food) he will come out of hiding easily. It's unclear how much exposure Bob's had to other animals, but with slow introductions he's been fine with our dogs and cat. Based on observation, we think Bob would do best with a dog who is very laid back and not easily excitable and/or a cat that likes other cats. We've had him for over a month now, providing him with his own room and slow introductions as recommended. He's already acclimated to our dogs barking and is even curious about them. He doesn't mind when our dogs lay near him on the same couch and they've even sniffed each other a few times, but he's still not 100% comfortable without a bit of distance (6 inches when they're napping or sniffing about) and sudden movements do spook him. With our cat, he's been curious and hasn't displayed any aggression towards her when we've introduced them. He will meow at her and try to approach, but unfortunately our cat is not at all welcoming and growls/hisses, so have to keep them separated. In terms of Bob's homeless history, he'd been living outside our home for over a year. We thought he was a neighborhood cat, but realized he had nowhere to go when the temperature dipped below freezing so we took him in. Just before taking him to the shelter, I found out from his microchip the name of his previous owner, but no contact info was listed. I searched for her online and visited the 3 listed addresses, to no avail. The shelter gave us his vet records after we took him back. We found out his name is Bob, that he's 5 1/2 years old, been neutered and vaccinated and is terrified of the vet. We were given meds to calm him down prior to vet visit and it works really well. (We had to take him to our vet to get him treated for the respiratory infection he picked up at MCAS, which has cleared up and he is no longer contagious.) When we took him in his skin was a mess and he was loosing fur at the base of his tail due to flea and possible flea allergy. So he's now on a monthly preventative flea treatment - we give him Advantage b/c apparently Frontline no longer works. His skin has healed up nicely. Now that he's healthy, he just needs a home. We want to make sure Bob finds the loving home he deserves. After years of fending for himself, we hope to find someone who will take good care of him and love him as much as we do. Please email if this person could be you! Additional photos of Bob may be found here: (Less)
