Bo was adopted by a wonderful man and thousands were spent on his recovery. So sad but the gentleman died and a big plump boy came back to us. He now needs another home but one that will love him as much as his last owner did. The man who had adopted him was a great friend of Catsnap and he loved his Mr Bo. But now another chapter in the book of Bo must be written.

His foster says " Mr. Bojangles here.  17 pounds of 5 year old catitude looking for my forever home.  My time at the foster has been great and I have had time to grieve the passing of Larry and I am coming back out of my shell.  I am starting to relearn how to play and I like to bat my mouse and sparkly ball around and will do my fair share of zoomies around the house.  My foster also has a basement and I love racing up and down the stairs (I always win – I am not sure why she is so slow!)  While I will also play with a cat dancer, I haven’t quite figured out what a laser pointer does and what that lighted dot on the floor is for.  I adore all types of strings (will actually eat them if given a chance) but will go for the hand moving it if it gets too close to me.  I am told I am a special needs cat as I have a special diet due to not digesting fat (hence the 17 pounds and a special litter.  At my last vet check I received a clean bill of health but he did send a diet plan home with my foster ☹.  I really don’t like being in a carrier and will hurt myself trying to get out so I may need to only be in soft carriers.  I am a bit jumpy still and will scurry to a safe place if I feel threatened.  I love to look out windows and have a couple of benches that I perch up on to soak up the sun and watch the birds and rabbits.  I like to be around people and may lie on your lap for a while but really just like to lie on the cushion next to you or on the back of the sofa.  I don’t think I would be good around children or elderly folks as I am a boy and I can play rough. Larry would play rough with me at times and I loved it but picked up the habit of getting rough with anyone.  I am told I have a pretty good tell (eyes go wide & ears go back) so I do give a bit of warning most of the time before I take action but on occasion I will just lunge for no reason (boredom, perhaps).  I am told I am nosy as I want to be in the middle of things but who doesn’t?  I don’t always respect space and will be underfoot and don’t really enjoy being picked up.  I haven’t been around other cats and I got really excited (hackles raised and tail fluffed out) when a stray cat visited the window.  I also haven’t been around dogs but I was interested in the Dachshund that visited my foster.  They were holding it in their lap so I couldn’t get very close!  I am fastidious in my litter habits preferring 2 boxes and I also use my cat scratchers regularly (my foster got 2 extra scratchers to place at corners to keep me from using her furniture).  I will be a good companion keeping you company when you are home and meeting you at the door when you return.

 

His history is sad. It was six pm one night and we heard the door bell ring at our place. In came a man with a cardboard box duct taped. I opened the box and out came the scruffiest dirtiest saddest looking cat you can imagine. He was wet and he was freezing and he had the biggest eyes in the world.

A pitiful sad bundle of our domestic friend the cat, who for years has been left in this terrible shape. He is emaciated, he had a fractured jaw and some of his teeth were broken. He could barely eat food because of the agony of his jaw. The vet thought he was probably kicked or hit in the jaw.

When the man saw our faces he hurriedly left and sad to say we were still stunned. We were quick enough to open the door and watch his shiny silver truck pull off but still could not utter what we were thinking...

We gave the kitty a warm bath, called the vet, gave him meds, we gave him wormer and tape worm meds and flea prevention. Many thanks to our volunteer  Jessica Sarno  for her tender touch and for his name: Mr Bojangles!

We wrapped him in a blanket and we loved him. And his eyes never left our face. And then he was adopted and his happy life began.

  Thanks to his wonderful owner Bo is in wonderful shape. And he is ready for what life has to offer.

He has been in the care of a fantastic foster who can tell you all his great traits and a few of his not so great. I do not think he would do well with children and I am not sure he would like a loud household. And he likes sports on TV. That is his fosters fault!
