I'm posting this on behalf of a friend whose colleague has be given responsibility to rehome Bobby after his owner died. My friend's colleague was going to take Bobby herself, but is now unable to. Bobby is still in his own home and is being fed by the colleague (who lives next door). Bobby is black and white, longhaired, about 9 years old, and very shy and I think he must be quite traumatised by the loss of his owner because at first he wouldnt even appear when the lady went in to feed him, and now he is hissing and spitting at her. Its likely he'll need a lot of time and patience to gain his trust, and so he needs a quiet, calm home, probably without young children, and no other pets.
I've recommended the lady who is feeding him get in touch with our local CP and another cat rescue in the area, but she wants to see if she can find a home for him herself. The son of Bobby's owner is saying that Bobby has got to go before the end of May!
It turns out I know Bobby! - when my friend was telling me about his owner who died and said that her cat needed rehoming and that his name was Bobby - I realised he'd been one of my grooming customers (not a particularly regular customer - about once a year, and actually I hadnt seen him for several years!) His coat is apparently in a bit of state! No photo I'm afraid, with him being so shy and wary.
