Rocky's Story...
Rocky is a fun guy! He is estimated at around 8 months old. Rocky loves to play with other kittens, toys and laser pointers. He adjusted to the dogs in his foster home after ~3 weeks. He would probably do fine in a home with dogs that weren't too interested in him, if given enough time to adjust to them. Rocky likes other cats and would do fine with new feline friends with an appropriate introduction. Rocky has gotten nippy with people when he is startled or if he's in a stressful situation (especially around new dogs) and you try to pick him up. Due to this totally understandable behavior we would prefer he does not go to a home with young children. With adults, Rocky is a very affectionate and people oriented boy. He is usually happy to be scooped up and cuddled and almost always loves getting pets. He is very talkative and will have long conversations with you about how you should pet him and/or give him more food. He thinks all new humans are his friends and is not a timid guy at all. He may settle into being a lap cat when he's a little older. Right now his attention span doesn't keep him in one place for too long.

All kitties go to their new owners spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, and are negative for FIV/FeLV. The adoption fee is $75. If you are interested in adoption or have any questions, please contact info@rchsks.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Manhattan Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Manhattan, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Manhattan.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Manhattan already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Manhattan breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Manhattan paves the way for another one to be saved.
