Rescue Me ID: 17-08-27-00226Coalie, Bobby, Flaxen (male)

American Bobtail Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello! Our mom is an outdoor stray - she is not a wild/feral, but she is very cautious about people and everything because she is a smart mom! She got combo tested, spayed, and vaccinated and then went back to live where we all came from. We were young enough that the Feline Felicity lady decided to take us in and try to get us more used to people so that we could be adopted and hopefully have an easier life than our mom has. Coalie is the blue silver gray tabby. Flaxen is the smallest and very pale orange - almost like blonde/buff/apricot tabby. And Bobby is the darker orange and of course, bobtail, hence his name. We all get along great ... (Read More)and have been introduced to other adult cats from 1 yr olds to seniors as well as a couple of very cat-friendly dogs who are about 45-55 lbs. We prefer people who are very cat experienced since we were born as feral kittens. And we do not like a lot of unpredictable chaos in the home, so young children and lots of coming and going company and stuff would probably not be good for us. We have all been combo tested negative, dewormed, have flea prevention applied, have three sets of fvrcp vaccines, our rabies vaccine, and two sets of leukemia vaccines. So, our annual exams and vaccines will not be due again until 2018. If you do not have any other cats, we would love to be adopted together so at least there are two of us and we will have a kitty friend all the time. We love to play, and we like company. We are still getting used to human companionship and will probably grow more loving toward people over time. As of right now, Coalie is the most attached to Ms Felicity. He sometimes talks to her and will give her little affectionate licks. Flaxen is the smallest and kind of a high-pitched cry-baby sometimes ... especially for food or attention. Bobby is brave and adventurous and has a human foot fetish, so you have to be careful he is not winding around your feet/legs when you are trying to walk. We are all very good boys about using the litter box - we use an extra large uncovered box and prefer the pine pellet natural litter (Tractor Supply's equine pine pellets in the 40# bag are the most cost effective) and we mainly eat TSC's 4Health All Life Stages or Purina One Indoor Advantage. We love just about any canned food. All we want for the 2017 is our forever tlc responsible family and indoor home! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-27-00092Bruiser (male)

American Bobtail Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Cats, Not Good w/ Dogs, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Deaf, FIV, Abused/Neglected 

    Cookeville, TN. This handsome blue-eyed, white short-haired, manx/bobtail neutered male needs a home where he is the only pet and household is stable routine mature adults, not chaotic with lots of in and out visitors, etc. He is an adult going toward senior in good general health. He earned the name Brusier over the years where he has somehow managed to survive the neighborhood outside with the help of a caring female homeowner in the area. He is partially to mostly deaf, and it is a miracle he has not been killed before now trying to survive outside for who knows how long before he got some help from a kindly animal/cat-friendly lady in ... (Read More)the rural neighborhood. Now he doesn't even want to stray from her fenced yard or porch anymore. He sits with her in the porch swing and wants to be a lap kitty with an easy life for his golden years. He very obviously wants to go in her house, but she cannot let him in because he is so jealous/aggressive toward her other cats and very protective/aggressive regarding his food or 'his' human companion(s). He needs a mature adults, stable, indoor only home where he will be the only pet/cat. Hopefully, someone will give him a chance. (the lady who is caring for him now said she thinks he would make a great cat for a sr home/assisted living/nursing home facility once he got used to it and settled in) Update: He has been living in a basement/garage since this past winter. We learned he is FIV positive, but he is healthy and asymptomatic. For all we know, he may have been previously vaccinated against FIV, and that is why his test is positive. He is not sick, and could live 10 more years as long as he is kept indoors and is taken care of well & loved. That is really all he wants ... and food ... he loves his canned food. He tries to come into the house with the rest of the rescue animals, but some of them want to start fights with him which is not ok. He is NOT the one starting the fights here, but he is acutely sensitive and startles easily, maybe due to his partial deafness, and that can be unpredictable in most any cat. He just wants to 'retire' with someone and live the good life in his golden years. Please give him a chance. (Less)
