Rocky is another community cat that has been fending for himself in a neighborhood and being cared for by animal loving citizens. It took a little while for them to befriend Rocky and get close enough to start petting him, but once that trust was established, it was clear Rocky did belong to someone at some point and simply became fearful of humans as a protective defense mechanism for survival. Because they were feeding, they did the responsible thing by having him neutered and vaccinated. After only a few short months he would let them pick him up and brush him. He also became good friends with their other cats. They reached out for help in finding him a real home to give him a chance at a good life and not just being outdoors the rest of his life. Rocky is FIV positive, which is not uncommon with cats living outdoors especially unneutered males fighting for territory. In our book, FIV is nothing to be concerned about but an indoor, stress free life is recommended. Rocky is around three years old and has the most endearing fluffy face and cauliflower ear. He has a quirky and adorable personality. Once you meet him you will definitely fall in love.If you are interested in Rocky, please visit LAPCATS
