Pets of the Week: Bobby and Caine
Young Bobby is tall, dark, handsome, super fun - the ultimate family cat! This 3 year-old Tabby is intelligent, curious and loves to play, but he's just as likely to cozy up to you for some petting or find a sunny spot to lounge. He's loaded with personality and an outgoing temperament, so if you like take-charge young guys with a streak of independence and a whole lot of charm, he might just be your Prince Charming.
Bobby could be an only pet, but as a young, energetic dude, he loves and needs attention and stimulation. Though a real pussycat, he will let you know when he doesn't want to be bothered or feels that he is not receiving sufficient attention. Kids would not be a problem as he loves to play, so long as they understand some initial "space" is necessary. He gets on with other pets as long as they understand that he's the boss, so territory might be an issue with an already established cat/dog in his new home.
Bobby may fancy himself as the alpha dude, but he's also a marshmallow. He needs a stable home as he has been relinquished twice: once due to owner's unsuspected allergies to cats; the second time because of the owner losing his job. He would thrive and be a total love bug in a home where he can feel secure and loved.
Bobby is currently with the Friends of Animals Foundation, a non-profit, no-kill rescue and adoption group based in in West Los Angeles. Other kitties from the Friends of Animals Foundation, Sergeant Pepper and Juliet, were previously featured on LAist and are still looking for a home.
Caine is a 3-and-a-half year-old white Boxer with a docked tail. This beautiful boy was found as a stray; emaciated and hungry, with skin abrasions on both hind legs from sitting and sleeping on concrete. He is a very sweet dog, though a little shy at first. He warms up quickly, showing off his good-nature. Caine is good with other dogs and cats and loves his sister Leona, who is also available for adoption. Caine is available from the Ace of Hearts Foundation, a dog rescue group that doesn't discriminate against breeds. Amen.
