Story
Persimmon is approximately 1-year-old of April 2023 whose shiny coal-black coat really stands out in a crowd!  He is a sweet-tempered and sensitive type who was scared of his new surroundings at first but within the span of 2-3 weeks, he was all over the house and coming around his foster mom for attention and scratches by his tail.  Lately, he has with the cold weather he has become quite the snuggle bug wanting to lay on his person's lap with his favorite foster sister almost every time she sits down.  He hasn’t been around dogs very much but I believe with a proper introduction of a friendly dog and lots of patience, it should not be a problem.  In addition, he gets along well with other cats both young and adults.  He would certainly enjoy a similar-aged or friendly adult cat to tussle with as he enjoys spirited playtime with his foster siblings, but he also plays independently quite well.  He comes to you litter box trained, neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, and with all age-appropriate vaccinations so contact Rock City Rescue to adopt this dashing young man!April 4, 2024, 12:04 am

Story
Bruno is a handsome and approximately 1-year-old (as of April 2023) cat that we all certainly need to talk about!   Not only does he have stunning eyes, a shiny coal-black coat with striking tabby markings underneath.  His body type is very slim and exotic akin to a Siamese.  He is a sweet-tempered soul with a playful personality and loves mealtimes, treats, playing hard, and sleeping on soft blankets or the cat tree.  He is a gentle soul who plays well with other kittens and gets along with adult cats in that he does not tend to pester them.  This boy plays independently quite well, but I think he would certainly enjoy a younger or active adult cat to tussle with if not a cat/kitten around his age. He can be a little shy with strangers and mostly gives his affection to people he trusts.  I believe he will blossom in an environment that will be patient with him.  He comes to you litter box trained, neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, and up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations so contact Rock City Rescue to adopt this unique boy.April 4, 2024, 12:04 am

Story
Luisa is an approximately 1-year-old (as of April 2023) cat who was rescued with her three litter mates snugly tucked in behind a flower box in an unsuspecting family's backyard.  She is short and stout with stunning tabby markings and some gorgeous big eyes!  She hasn’t been around dogs thus far in her life but I don’t think it would be an issue for her.  Not one not to pester a cat that doesn’t want to be bothered, but she adores her adult foster brother and is never far out of his shadow. She likes to be part of the action laying near her people and sleeping on the bed with them most nights but prefers pets on her terms.   I'm sure she would great companion for a lonely singular cat or a person who doesn’t try to push her too much with cuddling.  She comes to you litter box trained, spayed, FIV/FeLV negative, and with all age-appropriate vaccinations so contact Rock City Rescue to adopt this gorgeous girl. Email the cat's name and phone number to rockcityrescue@gmail.com.April 4, 2024, 12:04 am

Story
Hi, I’m Cortado, a striking 1-year-old (as of April 2023) boy. I started my life on the streets but just like a hot cortado, I am warming up to life as an inside kitty. I recently discovered how nice nighttime snuggles with the hoomans are! I love to play with my brothers, especially hide and pounce in the cat tunnel and chase toys that make noise. I love to be around kids and am great with other kitties and dogs once I get comfortable. Best of all, I’ll come to your home litter box trained, neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, and with all age-appropriate vaccinations. If I sound like the purrfect addition to your home, email rockcityrescue@gmail.com with your name and phone number. April 4, 2024, 12:04 am

Story
Hi, I’m Thorfinn, a ten-month-old male kitten (as of April 2023, but 5 mos when my pics were taken). I’m an equally snuggly and playful kitty, looking for my forever home. I love being active - whether that’s playtime with my foster kitty siblings (like my twin Sasappis) or my toys. I love toys of all kinds and can’t wait to show off my chasing and pouncing skills. After a hard day of play, there’s nothing I want more than to cuddle up with my people on the couch or in bed. I do well around other cats and dogs and am very people-oriented and social, making friends instantly. I’ll come to your home litter box trained, neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, and with all age-appropriate vaccinations.

Meet Alanis! She was a stray in Newark before we received her. She is very friendly and enjoys attention, she follows her foster mom around the house like a dog. She loves to snuggle. She doesn't seem to mind other cats. She is around 2 years old and ready for a forever home!

Story
Rocky Road aka Rockie aka Roxie was found in a box with her siblings as tiny kittens. She lives in a foster home with Chip and the Threes Company kittens. She seems to be passive and get along with all of them. She is friendly with people and loves to occasionally cuddle and "nurse" on her foster mom's hair. She loves to play and does well entertaining herself, she has one specific mouse toy she will play with daily, but really loves when you play string toys with her. She loves to watch the birds at the bird feeder as well. She is not a fan of being manhandled for nail trimmings or medicines, you'll need a second person, but she is very quick to forgive you. She would probably do best paired with Chip or Jack if you're looking for a pair.

Story
Chip aka Chipwich was a lonely stray kitten we pulled from the Newark Shelter. He is the same age as our Sundae kittens so he has been raised with them as their brother. He is a super sweet cat, loves attention and has a huge purr. He also LOVES to play! He is always ready to run and play. He needs to be adopted with Creamsicle or Rocky Road, OR into a home with a young playful cat. Lots of personality with Chip, he will keep you entertained all day long!

Threes Company too! These three cuties are still waiting for their forever homes! They are: Chrissy - b&w Janet - tuxedo Jack - brown tabby They all love to snuggle with you, especially Chrissy and Jack. They love attention, they always come over to greet you and get scratched all down their backs. They knead blankies and purr. When they're not snuggling and napping, they are very busy playing! They entertain themselves but they also really love string toy time. They do live with other kittens (Chip & Rockie) and a cat in their foster home but if they go to homes with other cats you need to be familiar with cat behavior (resident cats may also need to be more on the passive side personality-wise). They will take a while to adjust with strange cats - when Creamsicle, Chip & Rockie came home from their neuters/spay it was 24-48hrs of hissing and growling each time because they smelled different and they "didn't recognize" them. They will even do this to each other. They do get over it and all goes back to normal, just be prepared to deal with it! They coexist great once the dust settles. We would love to keep the trio together (big ask but hey, it happens on the rare occasion!) or pair two of them together.
