Domestic Short/Med/Long Hair For Adoption, VIC : Perfect Pets Listing


**Enquire at Please include your phone number so we can respond **

UPDATE: Bandido has adopted his foster carers 80 year old mum. He now sleeps on her bed and keeps her feet warm all night. Still runs around yelling and being a weirdo, but also loves cuddling in bed and even permits kissies on his big broad head. Definitely not the disturbed feline we took into foster care all those years ago, he's mellowed a lot!

Not Boring Bandido was a sweet affectionate much loved indoor only family cat until one day he ran away from home. He was missing for over six months, and when he was found and returned (hooray for microchips!) the experience had changed him. He became aggressive and unpredictable and the family was no longer able to look after him.
Bandido was surrendered to Cat People of Melbourne who have had him in care for years. Our behavioural carers have worked with him, we've used vet recommended behavioural medications and they have helped but he would still be unpredictable at times. Then his carers discovered Bandido loved boxes. Boxes means Bandido is happy, he likes to sit in them, sleep in them, move around from box to box... they work for him. And no medication side effects, ecologically sound (recyclable) and most importantly happy Bandido means happy people!
So we are looking for someone special to adopt or permanently foster Bandido. Whoever takes on this big boy needs to understand that sometimes PTSD happens and simply doesn't go away, no matter how much we love them. He's a challenge but he's a big lovely one and we think he's worth it. Are you up for it?
