Hi! My name is Rocky
I am Domestic Shorthair from Rockledge, FL
Nicknames: Rock Star, Rock Monster, Muffin (who knows where that came from), Muchie (that one either), Munch Munch
Age: 10 years old
Coat: short haired
Education: I am so proud of Rocky - when he showed up in our backyard, he was so afraid of people, but was starving. I'd leave him food and then run inside to peek through the window & watch him eat. I caught him a couple of weeks later in a humane trap, and he was so pissed. He was so scared & was hissing & spitting at me. I let him out on my porch, thinking I'd keep him there until I got him to the vet. OH NO, he had different plans. He climbed the screen on my porch and would do death falls, landing on his back on the concrete. My Mom ran in & got the comforter off of her bed, so when he climbed up & dropped we'd catch him in the comforter. We let him go out the porch door because he was being traumatized. He stayed in our yard, and kept eating what I'd leave out for him. It took us a year & a half of him being devil cat and not letting us near him, until one day he just decided that he wanted some loving, and started rubbing all over my Mom's legs. We worked with him and taught him how to be picked up and cuddled, and he is now the BEST cat at the vet, and is the biggest cuddler you've ever met.
My favorite tricks and treats are: I love to walk on top of the fence, and hide in the croton. I also love to bop my Mom's feet if I'm hiding in the garage. She gets scared if I surprise her right, hee hee hee and I don't like treats, other than being loved on :)
Where I hang out: I love to hang out in MY garage, in my bed that my Mom puts out for me at night (a lawn chair outfitted with a cat bed & blankets)
My favorite grubs: I love my crunchy cat food. Now I get a little wet too, because when Tuxedo came, he couldn't eat the crunchy cause his teeth were bad, so he got wet. Now I want just a little bit too.
My pet peeves: I don't like the new stray on the block (Tuxedo) eating out of my dish in my garage. He's fun to play with, but is so laid back. Nothing bothers him. Ergh.
What I love about my owners: I love that my Mom worked on me so hard, even after I was "devil cat", and didn't give up on me. She loved me from the time she saw me, and new I'd come around eventually. I was just a little more stubborn than she'd hoped. I also like that she lets me give her love bites (even though I get a little carried away sometimes & bite a little too hard).
My cat hobbies: I LOVE to roll in the dirt right before I get cuddling from my Momma Jennifer so that I get her clothes & her face really dirty. It is so fun!
Pet motto: I'm in charge, and don't you forget it.
