Meet Toby

Toby is a massive cat with a gentle personality. He weighs approx 5kg and has a large impressive head with big green eyes to match! Toby likes being an 'inside only' cat and enjoys sleeping in front of the heater. Tobys not really into playing and would prefer a home where he sleep comfortably and be patted to his hearts content. He has a very deep purr and loves being scratched under his chin. Toby is very easy to handle and is not a fussy eater. Although he hasn't been around children, I believe toby would settle in well with them due to his docile nature. He is also 100% toilet trained and hasnever sprayed inside the house. Toby is good with other cats, but would also be happy as the only feline in the household. This beautiful boy was brought into the vet by a concerned lady who had noticed him hanging around her house. He was microchipped (as a girl mind you!) so the vet called his owner. The owner said he had been missing for too long and he didn't want him back and instructed the vet to take him to the pound! Toby is now happily in DCH care and we would like to find him a home with a new owner who would always want him back.

Toby had been living on the streets for approximately 12 months before coming into DCH care. Living of anything he could find had taken its toll on his teeth with his left lower canine tooth needing to be removed. As you can see from the photos this tooth is much smaller, yellower and is starting to show infection around the gumline. This tooth will need to be removed and we are seeking sponsorship to cover this costs.

Update 5/8/08: Toby's operation has gone well, the tooth ended up being rotted to the core and their was lots of infectious matter under the tooth. He's now recovering from his surgery and will be ready for his new home shortly.
