Pooh Bear is a purebred Highlander. Highlander was not an option and I had to pick one so I picked bobtail as he does have a short tail. He is neutered and declawed on the front claws only. His previous owner had him declawed and he didn't get along well with those cats. Prior to my adopting him I already had 3 cats (all brothers) and they are just not getting along either. I think he will do better as the only cat in the home. I do have kids ages 8 and 13 that he does fine with but I do not have any dogs. I love this beautiful boy to death but I want him to find a loving home where he will be happy.
