Adopt a Cat: Rescue Tobie the Tabby

Brown tabby cat named Tobie is waiting for you at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.

Adopt a Cat: Rescue Tobie the Tabby

(Editor's note: Great news — , was adopted!)

Want to add a pet to your family? Tobie, a 14-year-old brown tabby, is a neutered male and declawed on all four feet. He spent 13 years in the same house with his sister, never had a litter box accident and was great with kids. 

Unfortunately the family had a new baby that ended up being severely allergic to the cats. They brought both cats in right after Christmas and Tobie’s sister has already been adopted out.

Tobie is very laid back, a little shy at first but really wants to be loved. His owners said he was a great lap cat and absolutely loves to be petted — the best buddy to watch TV with that anyone could ask for. 

He is fine with other cats, although he would prefer quiet, older ones and not some overly energetic, bouncy kitten as a friend. He already knows his manners around the house, is respectful of spaces he isn’t allowed in, can’t scratch furniture at all, but needs a new home for his golden years. 

His previous owners took him to the vet regularly and he is in excellent health.

If you’re interested in adopting or meeting Tobie, you can visit him at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter at the following times:

Tuesday - Friday: 12 noon  – 7 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

4500 West Ox Road, Fairfax, Virginia 22030
Phone: 703-830-1100
