Young party animal seeking fun-loving friend
Bootsie, a grey-and-white male, is a total party boy. He’s only one-years-old, but as of September 2012, he’s already spent more than 90 days in BC SPCA foster care.
Going by his carefree, energized spirit, you’d never guess he’s currently the longest resident feline at the Vancouver SPCA. Staff and volunteers can’t imagine why he’s been there so long.
Originally, Bootsie was surrendered to the SPCA with an injury to his tail, requiring amputation. After spending a month healing in foster care, Bootsie is now back on the scene. He's single and ready to mingle!
Bootsie’s crazy brain is all over the place. This makes Bootsie a really funny guy to be around, but this also requires an equally interactive, zany family who can keep him stimulated. He needs to be in a home with lots going on (think: cat toys, cat towers, plenty of indoor playtime and outdoor access with supervision).
When he gets worked up, Bootsie has a tendency of batting at or “hitting” legs. This isn’t out of aggression, but rather is his own silly form of play. However, because of his bad habit, Bootsie may frighten young children and therefore would be best suited for an adult-only home. In order to combat this kitty rough-housing, he’d likely respond well if he was rewarded for positive play behavior and given constant stimulation.
His foster mom says that he loved to play outside and never went far from the house. He also liked “zipping around the house at night-time” and is a very vocal boy.
Bootsie would be fine with another cat – so long as they are fine with him. He can be a little “in your face” at times, so it would be safe to assume he’d also be this way with a new feline friend.
If Bootsie sounds like the companion for you, please contact the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch at (604) 879-7721 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To view more adoptable animals, please visit the BC SPCA Pet Search site.
