My story

Do you have what it takes to keep up with Bosley? This friendly rescued cat is ready to light up your home with his energy and personality! Bosley was discovered living in a feral colony and trapped as part of a spay/neuter effort. Amazingly, he blossomed into one of the most social cats we have ever seen!

If you are looking for a quiet and demure cat who’ll keep to himself… Bosley is not your guy! He’s highly energetic, inquisitive, and loves to be in the thick of things. He follows people from room to room and will certainly want to supervise while you’re working. Bosley is quite talkative – he will walk around the room occasionally chatting to himself with a trilling little “merrrp”. He also loves a good dose of lap time while purring up a storm. At 15 pounds, he’s definitely a good lap warmer!

Periodically, Bosley can still get a bit nibbly / mouthy when interacting with people, although this has improved greatly since he was first taken in. We think this behavior would probably continue to diminish or go away entirely if he got more attention, but just to be on the safe side he would probably do best in a household without small children. Gentle older kids with prior cat experience would likely enjoy him very much.

Bosley gets along well with other cats once he's used to them, but over time has become MUCH more focused on people. For the most part he ignores his kitty roommates (although we do catch them having a cuddle occasionally). Bosley would be a great choice if you are looking for just one cat to be the king of your castle. Or, if you have one or two other cats and plenty of space, he should get along fine with them if introduced gradually (we can give you some pointers on how to accomplish this). He hasn’t spent time around dogs that we know of, but he’s a pretty confident guy and could likely adapt to a mellow, cat-friendly dog in a similar fashion.

Bosley has a general allergic/autoimmune issue which requires medication to control. We’ve worked with the vet to identify an effective treatment and it's working very well! Fortunately, his medication is cheap (Medrol - less than $10 a month lately) and very easy to give. It’s a small pill every other day, which he eagerly gobbles up inside a Pill Pocket treat. So, pill time is always happy time… none of these “pilling a cat” horror stories! With the allergies under control, Bosley has been a very healthy and robust kitty. He is about 5 years old, has been neutered, vaccinated, and tested FIV/FELV negative.

If you have any questions or might like to take this friendly fellow home, please give us a call or email. There is an adoption donation to the Feral Cat Foundation (an all-volunteer organization, which helped get him out of a bad situation and provided all his medical care) to help us continue our work with homeless cats. Please note that due to the public health situation, in-store adoption events are temporarily suspended, but please reach out by phone or email if interested!

More about this rescue

The Feral Cat Foundation (FCF) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose primary mission is to help people live with the feral and forgotten cats and kittens in the communities of Alameda and Contra Costa counties of northern California. We accomplish this through the nationally-recognized and effective method of "TNR" (trap-neuter-return). When possible, tame cats and kittens are adopted to loving homes. Cats that cannot be socialized are returned to the location where they were trapped and fed daily by caring volunteers. The lack of resources and a sanctuary prevent FCF from being able to take owner surrenders, rescue cats from shelters, or remove cats from neighborhoods.
