Bobby also has a reputation as a bully. He will intimidate other animals, if they act afraid. If they don't pay attention to his antics, he leaves other animals alone. Additionally, Bobby has a mischievous streak. He enjoys looking at you while he bats things off tables or shelves. His vet suggested a calming medication, but Bobby has chosen not to continue the prescription. He prefers to be a home body and is not interested in traveling or going to the vet. Bobby has a 3 year rabies vaccination to limit his transportation and vet visits.
Bobby also has a sweet side. He lives with a young teen aged boy and he will call out for his boy when he is lonely. He likes to spoon in bed with his boy, as long as it is on Bobby's terms. He is playful and is addicted to cat nip. He is litter box trained and eats adult cat food. Bobby likes to gaze out the window to watch birds and squirrels and has even taught himself to climb the ladder on his boy's bunk bed to rest or cuddle. He has tested negative for deadly cat diseases (FIV and FeLV). Bobby is up-to-date on rabies and is neutered.
Bobby is not your average cat. His new parent will need to be patient and understanding of a special needs cat. He is a comical character once he has settled into the home. He may do best in a home without other animals and little commotion and change.
ARF'N accepts applications from people between the ages of 21 and 65. We would consider applications from potential adopters up to age 70 for our senior pets. This will be determined on a case by case basis. Active seniors would be considered as foster parents since fostering is a temporary situation.
ARF'N primarily adopts only to residents in the counties surrounding Hernando County in central Florida or within a 60-90 min. drive from the Brooksville/Spring Hill areas. The reason for this is that we personally conduct home visits for each of our rescued pets to ensure they are getting a safe home.
The application can be found here: http://www.arfn.org/adoption-application/
Email questions to: email@example.com. We do not have a phone number to reach us.
ARF'N is a rescue operated by volunteers with full-time professional jobs during the day. We can't always get back to you immediately. Most of our rescue work happens in the evenings and on the weekends. It can typically take up to two weeks to go from application to adoption. More time is required for pets with multiple applications and during holidays. We do not adopt on a first come, first served basis. We find the best match between pet and adopter. Please be patient with us through this process. Rude emails will disqualify you from adopting from us.
The adoption fee is $20. There will be an application, a vet verification, and a home visit prior to adoption. Visit www.arfn.org to find the application to adopt.
