There will be updates, but I wanted to get this up before the weekend. From commentor Origuy:
A friend asked me to help find a home for this orange tabby named Bowie. His family is moving from the San Francisco Bay Area to Austin and cannot take him with them. It looks like he’s comfortable with dogs.
I’ll pass along the info and we can work out how to get him rehomed.
If you have suggestions, or know anyone who might be interested, leave a comment below, or contact me at annelaurie (at) balloon-juice (dot) com…

Awww, Bowie looks like a little chubster in that last pic
@Goku (aka Amerikan Baka): I think he might be a bit of a chonk.
Paging Sister Golden Bear! Sister Golden Bear please come to the white courtesy phone for an important message.
Is he an indoor cat? Does he get along with cats. The possible home I know of (and it’s a slim possible) has one other cat, very mellow orange guy, and three dogs. New cat would have to be an indoor cat.
I would, if I didn’t already have a territorial orange tubster and my wife wasn’t allergic to cats. :/
I’ll ask around locally to see if anyone I know is interested.

We already have two orange tabbies that don’t get along. But I’m in for transport help, and I’m in SF.
ETA: Bowie looks remarkably like our Scoot, right down to the mustache.

Or as they say on reddit, an Absolute Unit!
In for transport funds, if needed.

Wow, that a beauty! We’ve had several cats either red or white with red spots, they were all special personalities. Very affectionate, very smart.
I wish I wasn’t a whole continent away, I’m sure there are plenty of folks 2500 miles closer who will be glad to have such a cute cuddly kitty.
I’m in San Jose, let me talk to my people. We’re a cat house at 1 right now.
Glad to help in any way needed.
would help to know if Bowie is socialized with other cats too.
I’m a 2-cat house now, and adding a 3rd has some pecking order implications.
but also, we’re going to be launching two humans in September, so will need furry replacement(s).
This kind of cat is usually really sweet.
Good looking kitty, Steve says hi.
@MobiusKlein: Werebear says three is better than two. Just sayin’
I volunteer to fly from MN (soon to be -20) to CA and take him wherever warm place will take him! (Maybe Hawaii)??? LOL, I’m in for transport $$$ if needed. Good luck little guy!
What a gorgeous cat. Too bad we are at least two cats past being crazy cat people. The only people in the Bay area that I know that I would trust with a cat are allergic or have seriously allergic relatives.
What a gorgeous cat. He looks like a feline husky.
Too bad we are at least two cats past (five) being crazy cat people. The only people in the Bay area that I know that I would trust with a cat are allergic or have seriously allergic relatives.
My uncle had a cocker that was friends with my dad’s cat. After my uncle died and my dad went into a nursing home, they both came to live with me. The cocker protects the cat ( now blind) from the other cats, and also convinced our rottmix that the blind cat was friendly and safe.
In for transport costs to a good home. Please advise.
No adopters yet. That’s amazing for such a beautiful cat, and a ginger besides (they tend to be nice, although rather outgoing.)
Any update on Bowie?
I can help with travel costs if needed.
Also, if push comes to shove and you have to surrender him, if you’re in Santa Clara county the Humane Society Silicon Valley (hssv.org) in Milpitas is a no-kill shelter.
