ROCKY BLEU ON FENCE

ROCKY BLEU ON FENCE

We had a beautiful gray cat named bella, and when he passed, we missed him so much, and so, after some time, and 4 black kittens we raised in the mean time - we decided to get another gray cat.


Our 4 black cats were 5 years old, so we decided to go to the shelter and get another gray cat - well, it was love at first sight - there he was, jumping, and playing in his cage, like he was the happiest cat in the world!

He had been in the shelter 7 days - alone in a cage, and still he was full of life, and so happy!

When i held him he was so dear, and he gave me a love bite on my hand, just his way of saying he liked me - and to this day he still does that.

He's a biter- but not mean - it's just Rocky's way. So, they said to me, if you want a gray kitten those over there are already to go today, but i said no, i wanted rocky, so we had to go back next day to get him as they neutered him first.

We took him home, and he fit in perfectly - the most full of life kitten we had ever seen, ( and we have seen a lot!!! ) and we named him rocky bleu - and a week after we got rocky, the shelter had in the newspaper that the cats had something and many had to be put down - so we felt so thankful we got rocky when we did!

And so sorry for the others! For a year i sent photos to the shelter of rocky - on different holidays - and of course on his first birthday - now, rocky bleu is two - and such a delight - like no other cat we have ever had - and we love him so much - please consider getting shelter cats when you want a cat - you couldn't find more beautiful, or loving cats - thats Rocky's story and it goes on ......

Going to get the birds.

Your cat looks like he has his eye on the birds in the trees and looks fit enough to catch them if he wants to. Lovely cat.

My Cat chose me,.......Kinda

by R. Wright

It started when my boyfriend's daughter brought home a puppy actually. Haha, just stay with me.

I love animals. All of them, to a point. Some I favor more than others, (read Cats), but I value the life of all creatures. Cats just seem to "call" to me.

Anyway, So she brings home this puppy, who immediately began to chew his way thru everything,even my best pair of Steve Maddens. Which was when we decided, after only a month, the puppy had to have another home to live in.

We found the puppy a good home and went on our merry way. It wasn't even a month, I'd say, later that her boyfriend, at the time, gave her a new pet. The tiniest little jet black kitten I had ever seen.

He would fit in the palm of my hand. I was in love instantly. I reminded myself that this was her pet, not mine. Didn't matter.I was in love and that was that.

As the Cat got older, still without a name I might add, he began to stay very close to me. He would practically "heel" at my feet when I was walking, sleep on my chest if I was watching tv, etc..
I guess he has decided he likes me and I am his.

If my boyfriend lies to close to me or touches me when the Cat is around, Kitty feels the need to lie on my NECK facing my boyfriend, as if to say , "Mine". LOL I find this hysterical.

Sometimes my Cat will sit and stare straight into my eyes for 1-2 minutes, then run straight up my body, when I am lying down of course, and lick my face. I am not sure what this means in Kitty language, but I get the feeling that he is happy with his choice of"pet" and that he likes me.

That's pretty much it. I have belonged to Kitty now for a little over 2 years.

P.S. Did I mention he also lets me put him in a tub of water and bathe him? Something I didn't start doing until he was about a year old.
Yep I think he's happy . I am too

He likes you too.

Hi,

"then run straight up my body, when I am lying down of course, and lick my face. I am not sure what this means in Kitty language, but I get the feeling that he is happy with his choice of"pet" and that he likes me."

I'd say that he likes you too, likes you very much :0) He is licking you to return the compliment of petting him and looking after him.

Sounds very much like your cat chose you as much as you chose him.

Thank you very much for sending in your story.
