Lob came to Abbey Cats after he was taken in as a stray by the previous owners; his assertive and hyper demeanour was putting their older, female cat cats in distress, so his previous owners made the tough decision to pass him off to a foster home.
Lob was very shy for the first little while in his foster home, mostly hiding under the bed and only coming out for food and water.
In the following days, he became more and more comfortable with his foster mom, constantly asking for cuddles and playtime.
His beautiful golden eyes and incredibly soft coat make him impossible not to stare at, and he has the best, most loving personality.
He slowly started accepting visits from the other members of the family, and stopped running under the bed when they entered the room.
In less than a week, he was fully comfortable in his surroundings (bedroom/office), and was even happy to make visits to the other family members' bedrooms to explore.
Lob gets most of his energy at night, and sometimes likes to wake you up to play - the less you give in, the less he will do it.
He loves playing with your feet under the covers, chasing his toys around the room, and looking at himself in the mirror.
He is a very curious boy and loves to explore and hide, so make sure that you're starting him off in a small place, as it is very difficult to find a hiding cat (especially when they are black, and blend in with the dark spaces).
Lob has stolen the hearts of every member of his foster home, and has even converted some of the more stubborn members into full-blown, self-admitted cat people.
This little guy loves his cuddles more than anything, so get ready for a furry little purring machine!
He truly is one of the sweetest cats his foster mom has ever had the pleasure of spending time with, and she thinks he will grow out of his nighttime crazies as he gets more mature.
Lob was previously living with 2 other female adult cats, who he didn't seem to get along with particularly well since they didn't like how hyper and "masculine" he became as he entered adolescence.
Lob has been on his own since living with his foster family, and seems perfectly happy with that, especially because of how much he loves attention from humans.
We think that he would be fine with another male kitten/adolescent cat that also loves to play and cuddle.
Lob having a companion would probably let his humans sleep much better at night, as he would try to play with them instead of you.
He has never been exposed to kids, but his foster mom doesn't see that being a huge concern since he has been very gentle with her when we play.
When he attacks her at night, it can be quite startling, so that may not be the best for extremely young kids who get upset easily.
We think one of the reasons Lob gets so incredibly hyper at night is because he's bored, so another (male) kitten companion may be just what he needs.
Lob is very skittish, and will run and hide from loud noises (likely from him being a feral cat), so please don't make him anxious by chasing him around or introducing him to too many people/places before he is ready. We don't think he would be happy around dogs.
Lob is very much a people cat but he would love a young cat/adolescent kitten to play with and syphon off his kitten energy
Please bear in mind that it is against Abbey Cat policy to adopt a single kitten under the age of 6 months to a home without a kitten of similar age for company. Any kittens over 6 months may need the company of another young cat
