Hi I'm Rocky. Foster mom found me in a cage at animal control--my (previous) owner said I was bit by a raccoon. I didn't have any bite marks, so no one thinks that actually happened. The nice foster from IAR took me out of my cage and took me to a home. I was a few weeks old when I was rescued; I'm all grown up now (about 2 years), and I still need a home!

I'm very lean with long legs, and boy do I have a lot to say. I will talk your ear off. I'm so smart and athletic--mama says that I need lots of fun, play and stimulation. I have been known to open cabinets and turn on lights I have tried to swim!. I might be a fun cat to train. I have a ton of energy, but I also love nothing more than to lay on your chest and snuggle. Then I recharge and I'm off to play again.

When I was smaller, I would try to nurse off ANY cat and any humans. But that's just because I'm super loving and want to connect with all people and animals. I'm such a lover and so friendly. Even the meanest cat (and foster mom has one) likes me! I love to groom and be groomed by kitties. I tried with the dog, but he didn't like it as much.
