About Me

Active within 737 Days

Hi! My name is Rocket (In loving memory 7/18/97 - 1/8/2015)

I am an Abyssinian from Troy, MI

Nicknames: Ewe Lamb, Pumpkin Head, Tootsie, Precious, Baby Boy, Stinker Binker Boo, Rock, Rocketman, Cuddle Muffin, Boobah

Age: 19 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: He's just overall spectacular. I have people tell me all the time that they don't like cats, but they love Rocket. He's the most lovable cat I ever owned or even ever met. He constantly wants to be held and loved on. Everything I read about Abyssinians say they are not lap cats, but this one most definitely is. If I sit down anywhere, it's only a matter of time before Rocket is in my lap. He even pets me back. He'll take his little paws and pat me on the face and talk to me. He really is my baby.

My favorite tricks and treats are: No tricks per se, but I'm very smart and just plain adorable and any crunchy treat or anything my mom is eating are my favorite treats.

Where I hang out: My mom's lap, in the windows or doorway watching the birds and sleeping in the sun.

My favorite grubs: Little Friskies canned food.

My pet peeves: I hate it when my mom sneezes. If I'm on her lap and she sneezes, I just have to leave.

They don't like to let me outside unsupervised. I hate that too. I'm very fast though, hence my name, and I can escape periodically. They're usually right behind me though so I rarely get free time to myself outside.

What I love about my owners: They obviously love me. They treat me like a little king. They feed me well, talk to me and love on me each and every day. I'm never ignored. If I ask for attention I get it. They also gave me a playmate who loves and protects me, Belle, a Great Pyrenees.

My cat hobbies: Snuggling

Pet motto: Love on me and then love on me some more!

How We Met

We had just gotten a dog and also wanted a cat. I saw an Abyssinian on a Cat-A-Day calendar. It said they were good with dogs, so we looked for an Abyssinian. Got him from a breeder. Best choice we ever made in a pet.

Rocket has been the most precious pet for over 17 years. He developed diabetes at age 12 and what a trooper he was taking his shot. He would just lay down and take it like a good boy. Just lost him on 1/8/15. I'm completely heartbroken. I have never loved a pet as much as I did this little guy. I miss him so very much. Wish you could have lived forever Rocket. I will never forget you my precious baby.

Due to a change in website platforms, a necessary step to enhance and update the CAT FANCY magazine website, it will no longer be possible to host Club Cat. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, Club Cat will close and members will no longer be able to accrue points. Members with sufficient reward points have until Jan. 10, 2014, to redeem their points for any of the cat products currently available in the Club Cat Rewards Catalog. On Jan. 15, 2014, Club Cat members with 25 reward points or higher will be automatically entered into a raffle to win special prizes. Raffle prize winners will be notified after Jan. 31, 2014. Points for the final Cat of the Day will be awarded on Jan. 1, 2014. New programs similar to Cat of the Day will be announced with the launch of the new website, so look for further announcements. Thank you to everyone who joined Club Cat! 01/31/2014 12:00.00 AM

Hey, Rocket...
What a handsome cat! I'd like to see what an Abyssinian can do on the ice. I am writing to you today about our Mouse Hockey League. Many of your friends have enjoyed playing this new sport with us this past season. Our players are young and old, male and female, and breeds of all types. If you are a live cat, you are eligible. We are expanding the league size this year and are looking for many new kitties to make up the new teams. All games are simulated by computer, so your physical presence is NOT mandatory at game time. If you would like your CC membership to be more exciting and are looking for greater interaction with other kitties, mouse hockey may be your answer. New teams are forming NOW. If you are interested, please visit my page (Scamper - #39429) for more information or to sign up. We will try to accommodate any special requests you may have. We need you and hope you will seriously consider enriching your CC experience by being a part of this activity. Please let me know your feelings on this matter. Thanks... Scamper, Mgr., MHPR

Come visit me, TomCat, Angel Pepper -- 5/26/07 - 3/21/11, Angel Tuxie, Angel Scamper - I Love Tinkerbell, Angel Scooter - MHL Goalie (Chubbies Cubbies), Midnight, Kiwi -- MHL Pres. & Tigre -- MHL - Voracious Frisky Predators.

Sly found this Myth on The Web!
The Creation Myth On the first day of creation, God created the cat. On the second day, God created man to serve the cat. On the third day, God created all the animals of the earth to serve as potential food for the cat. On the fourth day, God created honest toil so that man could labor for the good of the cat. On the fifth day, God created the sparkle ball so that the cat might or might not play with it. On the sixth day, God created veterinary science to keep the cat healthy and the man broke. On the seventh day, God tried to rest, but he had to scoop the litter box. ~^..^~

My name is Rocket too. :)
Hello Rocket!!! My name is Rocket (Rocketman) too. My mom named me Arthur at first, but the way I dove off from high places & flew through the air, she changed my name. So, I named myself. I am 7 years old now & still fly through the air. :)

Come visit me, Rocketman & Cleocatra.
