None - I don't think anything ruffles him.

Favorite Toy:
A red catnip mouse

Favorite Nap Spot:
Under the coffee table, on the bed with his brothers. 4/1/09 - Now it's just on the bed with his brothers. He no longer hides at all.

Favorite Food:

He can make you fall in love with him :)


Arrival Story:
I have a lovely friend from The Daily Kitten, Scarver, who first blogged about Rocky. He was probably abandoned, but at first they thought he was a feral. He was sick and skinny, and with the love of Scarver, Rebecca and Julie, he was nursed back to health and became a beautiful boy. It was discovered by Scarver that Rocky had a very sweet personality. He's a very loving kitty who loves to be held and petted. He also likes to be rocked and will bury his head and purr away while you rock him. Sadly, Rocky was not able to stay with Scarver and Rebecca because they already had other cats who weren't very fond of this shy boy. I thought about it long and hard and decided that I would take this baby who only wants to love and be loved. Another TDK angel Bobbi brought him to me from Dallas on 2/26/09 and he's been here every since. He's been with me for about 4 days now and he's settled in very well with his brothers Hudson and Maverick. There was some hesitation, a few hisses, but they are getting along quite well considering the short amount of time Rocky has been here. He's such a little love, and I'm SO thankful to my friends for letting me take this little boy and give him a furrever home. Scarver and Rebekah obviously loved him very much and showered him with affection. He just laps it up.

Rocky is a sweet, kind, considerate kitty who is very respectful of his brothers. He always waits for them to come to him, as if he's saying "I'm not here to take over your territory, I'm here to be your new brother." Hudson and Maverick truly seem to understand this. Rocky has been with me for about 6 weeks now, and it's so strange to think about him never being here. He's fit in so very well and is such a lovebug. He has an easygoing, sweet personality and never ever gets mad or sulky. He's such a joy to have, and I'm glad I'm his mama.

I'm Home

Hi, my name is Rocky and I'm a Texas kitty. I used to live in Dallas, but my meowma couldn't keep me and she sent me to my new mewma in Houston.

I really like it here so far. I was sort of scared at first, I didn't know where I was going or why my meowmas sent me away. I thought I had done something wrong or maybe they didn't like me anymore. But then my new meowma told me that I wasn't being sent away because I was bad or unwanted, I was coming to a new home because there was somebody else who loved me just as much. It took awhile to sink in, but my new meowma was so sweet to me. She held me and rocked me and talked to me in a sweet voice and I warmed up to her right away. I went to sleep in her arms the first night I was here, that's how comfortable I was.

She made sure that my new brothers were nice to me and they were. We are all just curious of each other right now, but last night the all-striped brother Maverick came to talk to me and lick my ears. I didn't understand, but I'll probably catch on later.

I have 2 brothers, a little all-striped brother named Maverick and a great big brother who looks like me named Hudson. Maverick is friendlier than Hudson, but today Hudson and I took a nap under the dining room chair together so maybe he really likes me too, and just doesn't want me to know about it. I think he's jealous because I have a tail and he doesn't. Maverick told me he's sensitive about it. But meowma was playing with his stub and he didn't seem to mind it much.

Well that's just a little of my story. I'm glad to be here, and even though I miss my original meowmas, I know that even though they loved me very much, they did what was best for me. And like I said, I really like it here. My new meowma is a good person, and I know she really loves me too.
