Foster Bobski

Hello Brockley! We are looking for a loving family with a garden to take care of our cat for the medium term. We are long term Brockley residents, but are taking a work related long term stint in Costa Rica. Unfortuately, our beloved Bobski cannot join us and we are looking to re-home him for the length of our stay. We are likely to return to London in the next 6-9 months. We are hoping to find  a family that, perhaps, is looking to get a cat and can look after Bobski as a "tryout period" while we are away.

Bobski is a wonderful cat. He is very easy going, and perfectly at ease in most environments. He is playful, loving, self sufficient and adventurous. If you have any mice he is the MAN! He caught over five mice in his first week with us. He is a Celia Hammond rescue cat and a true Brockley Gent. Please, Brockley! We implore you, look after our cat, the though of passing him on for good breaks our heart. We need a new home for him by mid November, although we are looking to finalise an arrangement ASAP. Please get in touch at sashnash@gmail.com

Hope Bobski finds a good temporary home. Good luck.

As he's a Celia Hammond cat have you got in touch with them? From what I understand they look after all their cats for life, so would take him back if that was what was needed now your situation has changed. Also you might have more luck getting him back when you return as they might have a temporary foster carer. Good luck and I hope it all works out for you and Bobski.

Teahound, I think if you called Celia Hammond as a first point of call and asked them to look after your cat, (which you permanently adopted from them), because you want to go to abroad for a bit, they would be greatly displeased and let you know it. They look after 'foster' cats for life, but if you adopt one it's a forever home. They do take back cats sometimes if owners die, go into care homes, or get made homeless or lose their jobs and have no other options for rehoming, or if the cat is getting picked on by other cats or toddlers, but they have hundreds of other homeless cats and kittens, rescued from neglectful homes, dangerous building sites, or often dumped at their doorstep by people who make no effort, (unlike this person), to find a good home. They get so overcrowded they have to resort to keeping cats in cat pens - it's like emergency B&B accommodation, nobody would choose it over a real home. But good luck to Bobski and hope he gets a place to stay.

The thing is at the moment it's not a forever home is it and when you adopt a cat from CHAT you agree that if you can no longer look after it you'll return it to them. I'm sure it must be hard for Bobski's owners and I'm not saying that they are making no efforts to find a good home, just that they should call the Celia Hammond first to let them know of the situation. Maybe if another home was found in time they'd just need to do a home visit first and that would avoid the pen situation. I hope it works out for Bobski.
