Description: Mostly white with distinctive black markings, adorable fluffball!
Personality: Rothko will fool you at first, pretending to be a shy little guy. But pet him for five minutes and he'll be rolling on his back and wrestling with your hands. During his time with us, Rothko has become a total lap cat--verging into velcro kitty territory.
He will keep your lap warm on cold winter evenings and make you some excellent "biscuits" (kneading, which is a sign of contentment) in the process. Rothko is picky about feline companions but loves to wrestle, and would do well with a rambunctious cat of a similar age or a kitten. He loves to be brushed and would like to find a home in which he could be pampered.
Animal History: Community cat taken into IAR when he lost his home.
