Hello, it is with much regret that I post this message. I need to find a suitable loving home for my 7 year old Devon Rex, Rupert. Rupert has always had a little evil streak (which I adore) but he is also a very loving a smoochy little man. He is quite timid and a little highly strung and in this last year has been quite stressed out and anxious. We are a 3 cat household and Rupert is not coping with the competition.(I wish I knew this before hand - also getting rid of the other cats is definitely not an option) We also live in a rural area and have many strange cats visiting (which he hates! and is beyond our control) In the last six months Rupert has been spraying everywhere in and out of the house, even though he has been fixed. We have tried every avenue to avoid this behaviour but unfortunately nothing has worked. I just think he is a very unhappy little chap. He is currently at my mothers house (no other cats apart from the neighbours which don't seem to bother him) and he has not sprayed once. He is a lot more relaxed there and is happy although my parents cannot take him permanently. I would love to find a permanent home for him within the Geelong region, preferably one with no other cats. He is used to friendly dogs (we have a lab) although doesn't like them much. He's used to kids (I have an 11 and 12 year old) although he has scratched younger children if they get too close. He has also bitten people in the past also if they don't give him enough space. Although in saying all this (I don't want you to get the impression that he's the devils spawn) he loves children who approach quietly and slowly. He loves being around the family and often perches on my shoulder to be carried around. Night time on my lap is his favourite place (or snuggled around my neck or right in my face!) He is a loving, beautiful cat - I really do adore him and it breaks my heart to lose him, it's just that we cannot provide a happy home for him any longer. Can anyone please help?
