Rocky likes to sleep on a warm couch cushion -- the one in the middle.

Pet-Peeves:
If a family member is sitting on HIS couch cushion, Rocky will pester the heck out of the couch cushion violator.

His newest fav toy - the door stops (aka, twangy-thingies). He still likes his homemade catnip-stuffed mouse, but those twangy-thingies really make his day. Or should we say night?

On the center couch cushion.

Arrival Story:
Here's our story about Rocky. We were fortunate to find Rocky at the Pinellas County Humane Society in Clearwater, Florida. We had just lost Freddie (who was an amazing cat) to declining health issues (Freddie was 20 years old when he became an angel). On Labor Day weekend 1992, we felt we were ready to open our home and hearts to another kitty. This time, we chose to visit the PCHS for our next pet (all our other cats were foundlings on the front porch). Upon entering the cat area, we saw Rocky and fell in love immediately; we had to take him home. He was so tiny -- just 2 months old. The PCHS staff remarked how lucky Rocky was to be going to a new home, but we were the lucky ones. Prior to the onset of dementia in late 2009, Rocky was the best, most tolerant cat on Earth. Now if only all of humanity could be like our Rocky of younger days!

Bio:
Rocky is a barn cat, born in Pasco County, Florida. Rocky came by his name naturally; he literally flew around the house (and along the walls) at 90 miles an hour -- just like Rocket J Squirrel from the cartoons! Rocky is so incredibly agile, even as a senior kitty. Rocky is an awesome traveler and has enjoyed living in Florida, Indiana, and now California. Rocky has been suffering from health issues in recent years. He was blinded by an anesthesia accident (a bad reaction) about 4 years ago and he suffers from IBD (we control it with medication). He's a very happy cat.

Rocket Sprocket dropping in today to say, it's the second anniversary of Rocket Sprocket's journey to the Bridge. The Rocket reports, all is great, we get lots of chocolate cake. I am rockin' 'round the clock with my Bridge furiends. Cheers!
Rocket Sprocket

One, two, three o'clock, four o'clock, rock,
Five, six, seven o'clock, eight o'clock, rock,
Nine, ten, eleven o'clock, twelve o'clock, rock,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight.

Put your glad rags on and join me, hon,
We'll have some fun when the clock strikes one,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When the clock strikes two, three and four,
If the band slows down we'll yell for more,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When the chimes ring five, six and seven,
We'll be right in seventh heaven.
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When it's eight, nine, ten, eleven too,
I'll be goin' strong and so will you.
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When the clock strikes twelve, we'll cool off then,
Start a rockin' round the clock again.
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

 

Happy Heavenly Birthday, Rocky!

Missing you, sweet Rocky!

Can't believe you departed to the Rainbow Bridge one year ago today, March 5, 2010.

We still remember your gotcha day -- September 5, 1992 -- in detail. The weather was hot and breezy that Labor Day weekend. The wind gently brushed against the leaves of the giant Live Oaks that shaded the Humane Society campus, filling the air with the sounds of heaven's wind chimes.

Walking through the Society's feline compound, we were immediately drawn to the kitten playpen. You were so tiny, so quiet, sitting all alone, all by yourself in that huge playpen filled with rambunctious kittens. When you looked up at us, piercing our souls and hearts with your giant amber eyes ... it was instant love. We knew right then and there, you were the one!

Thank you, dear Rocky, for showering us with almost 18 glorious years of your love! We miss your zooming through the rooms of our earthly homes. But we know you are zooming the heavenly rooms at the Rainbow Bridge.

Missing you forever,
your loving family.
