Quick Bio:
-part feral-cat rescue

Orange & White Tabby

Stalking little critters in the courtyard, sleeping with us at night

Not getting to go outside when its dark and not getting fresh food everytime he comes back in the house and RAIN

Favorite Toy:
Chipmunks ( he isn't allowed to catch them)

Favorite Nap Spot:
His Dad's laptop computer,the bench under the front window his green chair on the front porch.

Favorite Food:
This is awful, but I guess his old survival instincts are in tact because he loves Porkchop bones out of the garbage if I don't keep it locked, but he is fed Hills Feline T/D

Opening drawers, cupboard doors, getting his way tactfully (he makes you think its your idea)

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
If you read Suleiman's story then you know Farouk's. To keep it short, he was rescued as a sickly kitten from a garbage dump in Greece and brought back to live in Kentucky. (see Suleiman the Magnificent) He learned about American cars the hard way and after having his hind leg shattered in eight places he is one car savvy cat. (See the picture with the blue bandages covering the pins) He is "The Cat of the Neighborhood" welcomed and loved by all, even the dog owners. Totally unspoiled, street smart, absolutely loveable and neutered of course.

Our beloved Farouk is no longer with us. He was hit by a car early last Friday morning (07/29/05). It is hard to put into words how much he meant to us and how devastated we are by his death. I open the door and call for him then realize he will be coming home no more. I fill his outside water dish then realize only the chipmunks will be using it. I seem to see him everywhere I look....patrolling the the back gate stalking the chipmunks....on my bed when I come upstairs, napping on his chair on the front porch. Then the tears come again and I just can't believe he's gone. We are so very grateful for the time he was with us and take comfort in knowing he lived longer here with us than he ever would have as a feral cat in Greece. You are going to be mourned and missed by your many human friends here in your neighborhood, Rouke. It was so hard to check the box that says you are no longer with us. Oh, Rouke.....we loved you so much and miss you terribly. All our love, Mom & Dad

Not sure if we did it right, because part of the html code shows and I don't think it should. Mom doesn't have time to fool with it cause she's packing for the Greek trip so she'll fix it later.

Well Darling Boy, its been two years now, but it feels like yesterday. Everyone in the neighbor misses you. The Chipmunks are out of control and there is talk of poisioning them. It was never necessary when you were here.
Dad thinks of you every day and smiles and says what a great cat you were. I miss your demands at the back door to be let out or let in....I get no exercise anymore.

We love you and miss you so much Rouke. You were a cat among cats!

Mom & Dad

One of my dearest friends went to the Bridge today. It was for the best and she is happy and doesn't hurt anymore, Dandelion I am so happy to see you and yet so sad that you are here. So terribly sad.
