Happy Tail: Rocky!

Black Cat Rescue is very pleased to announce that Rocky has found his forever home!

Rocky came to BCR after being found as a stray cat at five years old. He was beat-up and scruffy, and he tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus as well. FIV+ cats can live long full lives with proper care for their compromised immune systems, so Rocky was neutered and came into foster care to await an adopter. The vets who worked with Rocky commented on what a sweet boy he is, even stressed out from the ordeal of being rescued. They described his demeanor as “grateful,” and we knew Rocky would thrive in a home.

When Rocky arrived in foster care, he was greasy and needed a really good grooming, but happy to be there. He immediately cuddled up on Foster Volunteer Sarah’s lap and took a nap! As Rocky settled in he caught up on the sleeping and good eating he missed out on the streets and got over a bit of a cold. From the start, Rocky was a sweetie, but as he got used to the good life, he blossomed into a total lovebug.

Rocky spends as much time as possible in a person’s lap. He has super thick luxurious fur, so it’s a great thing that he really enjoys being brushed and stroked. We knew it would be no time at all until this great guy found a forever home.

Rocky is a total lovebug: friendly, easy-going, and super affectionate. Not to mention, he's incredibly handsome!

Nick and Melissa contacted Black Cat Rescue to find a friendly, affectionate indoor cat to join their home. They had a particular interest in adopting an older cat. Susanna, the BCR Adoption Coordinator, thought that Rocky would be a perfect fit for Nick and Melissa. When Nick and Melissa met Rocky in late May they loved him! The visit was delightful and Rocky had found his forever family.

Congratulations to Rocky and his new forever family.
