Meet Bobby

*Update April 2021: Unfortunately he's been in our cattery facility for 3 months now after his foster carer moved interstate. He's coped surprisingly well but we'd really love to see him in a proper home getting the ongoing affectionate and play time that he deserves. *

Bobby likes to walk around the house as though he is boss, he is not shy at all and will make himself at home anywhere. Bobby is fine with large dogs. He hasn't been with another cat but I think he'd be fine with another calm feline friend.

He really enjoys jumping out in front of you and running off - only to then come and grab your ankles for a quick nibble (very cheeky). He also does like to schmooze on a lap or a bed, if permitted.

Bobby loves to wander around the back yard, which we supervise, and is easy to pick up to return him indoors. Ideally he'd like a home with some space to run around, with a safe garden or yard where he can play and explore both inside and out.

Bobby is probably best placed into a home with no very young children as he is quite a large and strong cat, and can play a bit rough for littlies. However he's very easy for older children to handle and is quite smoochy and cuddly with them.

Information about the Manx cat breed and their personalities can be found here.

If you'd like to learn more about this almost dog-like cat, or visit him in his temporary home in Riverstone, please contact his carer.

Bobby has been in foster care since 27 October 2018, for 2.4 years
