New Pictures of Mr. Big!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I swear this guy knows how to tell time! It's so funny how he shows up every night at 5:00pm for his dinner. He's beginning to get SO affectionate and more trusting of us. He will now let my oldest daughter pet him too and he even comes all the way up to the backdoor while he's waiting for me to get his dinner ready.

Tonight, I had Jamie get the camera and take some pictures while I was feeding the big guy. He was so funny.....he was rubbing all over me so much that I was barely able to get his dinner in the bowl and he was about to knock me over! My daughter has now fallen in love with him too.

He's huge.....my guess would be that he's about 25 pounds or more. He's a lot bigger than Leo and Leo weighs 20 pounds.

Oh, he's adorable! I love his expression in the first pic!

I used to see that same expression when I lived in New York and the news cameras would break in on some shady back-room.

That look usually preceded the camera getting broken. ;-)

and I'm not sure that's a cat... maybe a Retriever mix of some kind? ;-)

Maybe retriever/tabby mix?

You see why I call him Mr. Big?

His eyes are sky blue.....believe it or not! I have never seen a full grown orange tabby cat with light blue eyes! He's really unique looking.

There's just no way.....five cats is almost too many in this small house. I thought about it tonight....how he is really beginning to trust me...and I think the time is coming close when I will be able to pick him up and put him in a carrier to take him to Happy Tails. I will really miss him. I've gotten to where I look forward to his nightly visits. But it's just not safe for him. I live near a very busy road and I'm so afraid that he'll get run over. Plus, he's obviously getting into fights......I noticed just tonight that his nose is all scratched up...which is new. And I'm not sure a cat like him....who's used to being able to roam...would adapt very well to living in a confined space with 5 other cats.

I know the people at Happy Tails since I've fostered for them before and they are wonderful people. I know that if they weren't able to find him a home.....they would let him live there....which is cat heaven! He's such a loving guy that I think he deserves so much better than what his life has become....and I'm going to see to it that he gets a better life.

By the way......if any of you here would be interested in taking Mr. Big into your home......let me know. I'd be willing to take him to my vet and get his shots and get him fixed and I would even bring him to you! (or meet you half-way)

He's a total sweetheart and based on what I've seen of him.....he would make someone a wonderful pet. He's very affectionate and obviously very smart since he can tell time!

Here's one of the other pictures of him that I posted on the other thread. This was the first day I met him. You can see his eyes better in this picture and see how nervous he was at first.



And look at the difference NOW! He's a real lover boy! He actually looks like he's smilling here!

I love that last picture of him... he looks so happy with you! And so aware of the camera but not afraid of it! What a handsome man... I wish I could take him but I have enough on my hands with Baylee dealing with Max!

Oh Robin. That first picture is so hilarious It's like someone shouted "It's a bust!" It's nice that he is getting used to you. If you do decide to "nab" him, please make sure you are covered and wearing heavy gloves even if he is really sweet right now. He is sooooo adorable. I have such a thing for "big guys" . I wish I knew someone who was in the market for a cat right now.

Forget part dog, I think he's part HORSE! What a sweet kitty. He's lucky to have found a friend in you!

Oh, Robin! This brings tears to my eyes. You are such an incredibly generous and warm person. Mr. Big met his guardian angel!

You're right.....he may be beginning to trust ME.....but I'm not sure I trust him just yet. I'll be careful when I do decide it's time to catch him. I thought about maybe putting some treats in the carrier I have outside and seeing if he'll go in there voluntarily. Then all I would have to do is close the door.

I wish there was someone here would be willing to take him so that I could at least keep up with him and get updates periodically.

AWWW he looks sooo cute and great!!!! It's a GREAt thing you are doing feeding and tending to him. I know how rewarding it can be and how worrying it can be tending to ferals and strays.

I found out something a couple years ago that you might already know but male cats who aren't fixed tend to grow BIG so maybe that's one reason why Mr. Big is sooo big- cuz he hasn't been fixed.

I agree about working with the people at Happy Trails to find him a good home. It WILL be hard seeing him go BUT at the same time, you WILL have peace of mind knowing he is in a safe and loving home.

I had to leave a feral cat named Callie behind when I moved one year ago. I worked sooooo hard to get her to trust me- it took over one year before she'd let me close enough to PLAY with her via the feather teaser and would eat out of my hand (BUT NEVER allowed me to pet her) and I still worry about her. I think I will never have peace of mind about Callie so I don't want you going through that.

You will know when it's time to find Mr. Big a good home. Keep us posted!!

Yeah I had heard that.....about un-neutered cats getting really big. And he's definitely a big guy! When I pet him I can feel how strong and solid he is. Not an ounce of fat on this guy. Like I said.....when I was trying to feed him earlier....he practically knocked me down while he was rubbing against me because he was so excited to see me. Any cat that can knock over a human is BIG!

That's one of the reasons I've been afraid to try and pick him up just yet. He could really hurt me if he wanted to. And if I can get him into the carrier voluntarily......that would be best. I may try on Friday since I'm off work both Friday and Saturday. I could possibly try tomorrow, but then I have to work the next two days after that and I couldn't leave him in the carrier for two days. Since he comes at 5:00pm.....I'll probably have to keep him overnight when I do catch him because I don't think Happy Tails stays open much later than that.

I wish I could get him to come early one day.

Awwwww he's so sweet!!! I'm so pleased he turned up again
post #28 of 29
He's such a gorgeous boy . I'm so glad he found such a wonderful home to visit until he finds a furrever home. You are wonderful .

You're wise to be thinking of such sensible precautions. If you do have to handle him - good thick leather/suede gloves that are like gauntlets are really good - ones the extend further up the arm. Last time hubby had to pick Adelaide up she wrapped herself around him like a teeth/claw filled cat glove! Take care.
