found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.
BOB is a neutered male, Black and White Tuxedo Domestic Shorthair. The shelter thinks Bob was about 8 years old when he arrived on October 30, 2005. Big Boy Bob is the Big Boss of the cat-room - he owns his own condo - and pretty much owns one of our kennel-attendants. He gets along very well with other cats and is willing to share his condo with any of the other shelter cats - but he's much more interested in humans - and as he's reminded us many times - he's the Boss! Bob gets the cutest look on his face when he hears Jennifer's voice - and we see how sweet he is behind all of that bravado as he follows Jennifer around like a little puppy when she lets him out of his cage. Bob's previous owner reports that he slept on the bed with her and was a kneeding, purring machine. He loves to hang with her in the shelter kitchen in the mornings while she gets the cat-room ready for the day - and he's mastered the art of drinking water from the kitchen faucet. You can't help but smile when you look at Bob. He very carefully picks his people (he does not like children), but if he decides that you meet his standards, he will be your faithful, funny companion. Big Boy Bob needs an experienced cat-owner who will appreciate his "cat-ness" - and always, always let him be the Boss!
BACKGROUND INFORMATION on Bi-Color or a Tuxedo Appearance cats.
A black-and-white bicolour cat is often known as a tuxedo cat or a Jellicle cat. To be considered a “tuxedo”, its black coloring should be solid through out, with white limited to the paws, belly, chest, throat, and possibly the chin. The tuxedo name is just that. It should appear as if the cat is wearing a tuxedo.
All cats are genetically tabbies, possessing one of the genes that cause striping or ticking. However, tuxedos possess a gene that suppresses the tabby markings. In addition, they carry a white-spotting gene called "S".
The "S" gene can produce anything from a totally white cat to any one of the bicolor variations. When a cat with the "S" gene also carries the "B" gene, the second color is black and a tuxedo cat results.
Here are some famous Tuxedo Cats: 1913 Krazy Kat -early comic strip tuxedo, 1919 Felix the Cat-cartoons “the wonderful, wonderful cat”, 1945 Sylvester -"looney tunes" tuxedo, and 1993 Socks -former presidential pet.
Starting the adoption process you need to be 18 years or older, complete an application http://www.petprojectfoundation.org/catadoption.pdf, be interviewed and it is strongly recommended all members of your household have interacted with the cat to make the best match for everyone, the cat you wish to adopt be an indoor cat, and be able to verify with your landlord that you may have a pet if you are renting. Understand we reserve the right to deny the adoption of any pet for any reason. Also any additional requirements for the specific pet you are interested in adopting needs to be met. We adopt to the best home, not necessarily the first application turned in.
