A cat described as a ‘demonic’ and ‘anti-social’ Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde by his last owner is still looking for his forever home after he was returned to the RSPCA for the fourth time in seven years.
Eight-year-old tabby Chester is back in familiar surroundings at the animal shelter in Adelaide after another unsuccessful adoption due to his bad boy attitude.
RSPCA carers remain hopeful of matching the affectionate but often fiery Chester with his perfect owner, claiming the ‘boomerang cat’ is simply misunderstood.
‘We’re not going to beat around the bush with this one, Chester has some serious cattitude,’ RSPCA South Australia posted on Facebook.

‘In his spare time Chester likes to burn down villages, worship the devil and swipe/bite his human underlings.’
‘Despite his (ahem) misgivings, Chester has a unique and quirky personality. When you strip back his cold, ruthless exterior you find a loving, chatty cat, who loves a pat (on his own terms) and a friend to rule the world alongside.’
The RSPCA shared a video of Chester showing off his diverse personalities which range from friendly and playful to temperamental as he swipes and tries to bite staff.
‘Chester came to us because he’s had a bit of a bad report card,’ his carer Jenny Sherring explained.
‘He has a bit of a bad boy attitude. He’ll swipe at you but it’s generally telling you he’s had enough.’
‘He is very food motivated so if you want him to cooperate, treats are going to be your best friend.’
While Chester has a fiery side, the eight year-old tabby is also affectionate and playful
Chester is best suited to a home with no children or other pets and ideally with one adult to himself.
His RSPCA profile online also warns he likes to scratch, will spray when there are other animals around and likes to roam and get into fights with other cats if not securely contained.
While he needs his own space alone, Chester also have lots of love to give, despite his history.
‘When I’m in the mood I’ll happily cuddle up on the couch and watch Netflix with you,’ his profile states.

The video was inundated with comments from cat lovers expressing support and love for Chester.
‘Need cattitude to put up with some humans,’ one wrote.
Another added: ‘He is definitely fun and fiery to hang out with.’
Chester is desexed, microchipped and vaccinated and can be adopted for $29.
