A bobtail cat is surely a sight to see. A bit of a change from your average house cat. They are extremely athletic and can jump to incredible heights. Roofus got his name from his dog like tendencies. Oddly enough he enjoys fetch and is a bit territorial. Being an intact male may be the reason for his protective instincts but nonetheless he's been an interesting roommate. Unfortunately he hasn't been the easiest to house train and without being able to have his natural food source from hunting he's been difficult to feed. He is picky and his stomach is sensitive. He has a long coat that mats easily. He isn't very vocal unless he feels something is wrong. Roofus is lively but his activity isn't too much to handle, he enjoys toys and something to keep him busy. He may have been better as an outdoor cat because he has proved to be a poor house cat given his inability to use the box.
