Community Listing: Rocky (declawed)

NOTE: This cat is in need from the community. This is listed as a courtesy, and the animal does not live at the Refuge. The Goathouse Refuge is not responsible for any problems with the animals or with the adoption process. Please contact the owner directly for more information.

Rocky is a 10 year old Grey striped maine coon mix cat who needs a new home. Rocky weighs 18 to 20 lbs and is Indoor only. This cat is located in Raleigh, NC 27615.

Rocky belonged to my brother who died 1 1/2 years ago from Type I Diabetes. He loved Rocky and Rocky was a true companion who never left his side. Rocky is diabetic & requires a daily insulin shot and is 10 years old. He is an indoor kitty and loves attention but is not demanding. He is a big boy with a large head and beautiful face and eyes. He uses the Arm & Hammer pine litter and a covered litter box. He has a basket of toys that he sometimes will play with and a carrier he likes to lounge/sun in. Rocky gives head butts and is loving and likes to be loved, he was #1 kitty at my brother's home and this would be ideal for him, however we have 8 other cats that he occasionally visits. He is a sweet boy, he always comes up to me while I'm getting ready for work and backs up to get his attention/rubs for the morning...I think Rocky would do fine w/other cats. My wish is for Rocky to go to a home where he can live and enjoy the rest of his years giving head butt loves and knowing he is loved. My heart is sad to have to place him, he has a special place in my heart, would like to be able to visit occasionally.
Rocky is good with Cats: Unknown, Dogs: Unknown, Kids: Unknown
