Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
Happy days with Rocky
We adopted Rocky at the beginning of the Covid outbreak and what a joy he has been. We have enjoyed him so much and he makes sure we laugh at him often. It took him a little bit to get used to us and we to him but he settled right in and made sure we knew his rules. He has his routines which he switches up about once a month, just to keep us on our toes. He lives in a neighborhood where he is not allowed to be outside to run free (a sadness and frustration for him), so he goes out on his leash almost every day. He especially likes getting acquainted with the neighbors, including the dog neighbors, and walks along beside us on his leash or just parks himself and surveys the area and sniffs the air. He is quite the talker and begs to go out after dark every day to hunt for moths and bugs. Beings that he is all black, it is impossible to see him out in the dark. I think I must get him a white harness so I can see him. He is a great little traveler, and his nosy and curious instincts allow him to get in the car and go with us for visits to family. We have so enjoyed this gregarious, self assured, full of personality cat. He is not a lap cat - yet- but I hope as he constantly evolves that he will mellow enough to sit on a lap occasionally. We can’t imagine being without him!
