Facts about Kobi

  • Breed: Bengal
  • Color: Spotted Tabby/Leopard Spotted
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Born ~2012, Male, Brown Spotted Bengal
MUST be ONLY cat in house

Kobi arrived at his foster home very stressed and distressed. HIs life had not been going well. He was found outside having either been put out by someone moving or having gotten out and gotten lost. He wasn’t in his comfortable territory. The local cats there did not welcome him. Then he did not enjoy his time in the shelter whatsoever and showed his annoyance by hissing. Purebreds was asked if we could take him and I was happy to go get him right away. I have fostered many, many Bengals. They are wonderful cats.

Kobi was a very dissatisfied, and possibly frightened, Bengal boy. He would not sniff my finger. He wanted nothing to do with us for the first two days during which time he hid under his blanket. We gave him his privacy. (“Chill,” we said.) By day three, he was out and calling to us to come pet him. He recovered very quickly.

And what a nice, loving boy he is. My goodness! He will solicit petting most of the time. Occasionally – usually when I am bringing a stranger over to show him off – he is a little diffident about humans, polite but not effusive, but mostly he loves petting and being silly and head butting you, pushing his head into your hand. I have not had him long but he is recovering from whatever happened to him very nicely.

I tell my would-be adopters that having a Bengal is a life-style choice. Your life partly has to flex to accommodate a Bengal’s needs. The hardest part is to keep them from getting outside. Once out, they wander much farther from their home than most cats-- for example, two miles or more the first night. Thought must be taken to keep them secure at home. Of course, enclosed catios attached to the home are good for them as they are for most cats. So many times as a foster mom, I have heard of lost Bengals. They as so striking-looking that people notice them wandering about and bring them to shelters. Purebreds just helped two very thin and unthrifty-looking (beautiful) Bengals we were sent photos of by getting them taken to a vet who checked their microchips and contacted their owners. Happy ending. They had been out struggling to stay alive a long time. So they must be carefully kept inside.

Kobi is a young healthy boy. His age is a guesstimate. We don’t have breeder info and birthdate on him, of course. He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and combo tested negative. He will make someone a very intelligent, fascinating, playful companion.

However he does NOT like other cats and must be the only cat in the home. He may ease up on this as he settles more, but for now we will stay with his being the only cat. I don’t know how he is with dogs. Respectful teenage children would probably be fine. He needs a spacious, stable home and an adopter who wants a deep-bonded companionship with his or her cat and is willing to entertain and play with him quite daily. Someone home a lot or who works from home would be perfect. An empty home five long days a week is probably not an ideal set up for Kobi, especially since he won’t have other cat’s companionship.

Kobi eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.

His foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.

About Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.

Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.

Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.

When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!

Our Adoption Process...

First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.

Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.

We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
