Rome was residing in the back yard of a local woman who fed the homeless cats in her neighborhood. Not wanting a population explosion, however, she asked for help and the rescuer who came to her assistance discovered that Rome was a very friendly guy. We were then asked if Rescue House could help Rome find a good forever home.

Sleek handsome Rome has a HUGE personality and a lot of energy! He radiates a kind of intense confidence in his approach to the world. And that world is best when it includes a human: Rome loves to be petted (though sometimes not on his rump), cuddled, kissed, will play with anything that moves, and this big talker will run up to you and tell you all about everything he’s seen and experienced through the day. Rome does expect respect in his cat-human interactions and will let you when things go a little too far for him with an admonishing swat; while he never hits to hurt, Rome would do best with someone who can read cats well and together you can find the perfect companionable balance for both you and Rome.

Rome has gotten along well with a small dog. He needs to be an only cat. Very young children would likely not be a good fit, though cat-savvy older children who can respect his boundaries would be welcome friends and playmates.

After struggling for food on the streets, Rome would just love to come to your home and show you what a happy and affectionate boy he can be!
