Rocky is my first house kitten to raise. Well, that is to raise in partnership with my wife. Oh, I've had barn kittens but all of the house cats have been already grown rescues. My wife raised a couple of kittens, one before we met, and a rescue that I was too busy working to have any part in raising.
It's funny that Rocky wandered into our life the way he did. I already had it in my mind, after losing Tabitha, our golden retriever, so unexpectedly, that I would like another house cat and I preferred it be a kitten. And, boom, out of the clear blue, here came Rocky.
Rocky is special...really special. Fearless, playful, loving, intelligent, just a joy to have around. And a natural clown. The wife took a video of him throwing himself in front of a broom while I sweep the hardwood floor with a broom. He lays on his side and pretends he is a dust mop, so I get to sweep and dust at the same time. I plan on posting this as soon as I can find the time to process it and upload it to the site. What a hoot!
I want to keep him as our kitten forever, but I know that can't happen so I am really looking forward to seeing what kind of mature cat he turns out to be. I think he is going to be an absolute blast to have around! Plus, as a full grown cat, I can cover more floor area per broom stroke...
