Story
Louise “Lulu” was born sometime in May 2021. She is a shorthair domestic girl looking for a forever home. She is beautiful with one white toe on her hind paw. It is the cutest thing ever! Louise “Lulu”  came to her foster home in May 2024 over-weight, scared and filthy. Just 2 weeks in and daily brushing, she is shedding much less and her fur is becoming silky. She has discovered she loves being brushed and receiving affection. Affection on her terms!  In the beginning, she would let me know to leave her alone by swatting at me. NO CLAWS were used, she just batted my hands to let me know not to touch her. So, I would stop and just sit still letting her know there weren’t any repercussions and that I understood I needed to leave her alone. Anyone who adopts her must have patience and the skill to understand that she will become trusting on her own time schedule. Once she comes to understand that you are only interested in giving her a safe, stable and loving home, she will learn that you are kind and only want to ensure she is happy and then she will begin to trust you. Week 3 with me, she opened up showing her trust by exposing her belly and letting me brush her there. The next day I was shocked as she mustered up the courage to rub up against my legs as I was getting her breakfast ready for her. You’ll know she loves the attention you are giving her by the head-butts she will give you. She uses her litter box and LOVES her scratching post. She loves “cat TV” meaning, she loves looking outside the windows and watching nature. Lulu is also treat motivated.  If interested please fill out an application at EHRcats.org. June 25, 2024, 10:10 am

Story
Noah is the last of his siblings waiting for his FURever home.  He enjoys spending time with his family and enjoys his quiet time.  He does play hard to get so an experienced cat family would be best suited for him.  He gets along great with dogs and would do well in a house with an older cat that can teach him the ropes. If you're interested in meeting Noah, please fill out an application at EHRcats.org and ask for him by name! June 25, 2024, 10:10 am

Story
Romeo and Julietta are siblings and are a bonded pair. They were found in the parking lot of Starbucks in October and were trapped and neutered, but we didnt have the heart to put them back outside for a long cold winter ahead. We decided we would foster them and try and socialize them but I knew I couldnt keep them. They have been in our heated garage and they are being well taken care of. We know they are ready for a home environment and would love to find them their furever home together. Romeo likes the attention and is more outgoing than his sister but she relies on him to feel more comfortable around people. She is very sweet. They have both come a long way since we have had them and are around a year old now.They love to get treats, play with their toys and love to sit in the sun and look out the window and watch the world go by.If you are able and willing to open your heart and your home and take in Romeo and Juliet it is imperative they remain together. One would be lost without the other. Please know that you will need a gentle voice, a gentle touch and a bit of patience so that Romeo and Juliet can build their trust and love for their new family. They have comforted each other through thick and thin and have been so grateful not to wonder each day where they will sleep or get their next meal. Once they feel comfortable, they will give you hours of unconditional love. They will show how much they appreciate the opportunity to have a forever family each time you are close to them and you hear them purr!Thank you for considering adopting this precious pair.

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!June 13, 2024, 12:15 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.June 13, 2024, 12:15 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.June 13, 2024, 12:15 am
