|I like to lay down in somewhat inconspicuous spots|
Let me introduce myself. My name is Rocky. Rene' and I will be taking a trip together soon and she thought I might like to share my thoughts on this by answering a few questions.
Q: Who owns you?
A: My human, Alex, thinks he owns me. The opposite is true, of course, as ALL humans are owned by the felines in their home!
Q: Why the name Rocky?
A: The truth is I had a rocky kittenhood. I was abandoned and dropped off at a shelter. I put notices on the internet trying to find a great human and Alex saw the ad. So my name became Rocky.
Q: Why are you here?
A: Some of your readers may already know that my human is in the Air Force and he's deployed far, far away right now. Our home is in Oklahoma but I like to visit with my grand-humans from time to time. It's too bad that Ron is allergic to me :-( As a result, I am staying with my friend, Domino, and her human, Charles, for now. Rene' visits me here and brings us toys.
|Domino and I like to take naps on Charles' chair|
A: Alex brought me here in a big, noisy airplane. I was so uncomfortable under the seat. Don't get me wrong, I like the smell of Alex's feet, but there were other smells and strange sounds and I was a little bit nervous and scared. So, Rene' agreed to drive me home :-)
|perfect size home for yours truly, and Alex too I suppose...|
A: When Domino and I first met in 2012, we weren't too sure about each other. She thought she was the queen of the household. Ha, I fooled her. Once I familiarized myself with the lay of the house, it was easy to claim which furniture I was going to be taking over. She thought she got rid of me that fall, but I've been back since July. But I digress. In answer to the question, I enjoy naps, playing with the toys Rene' brings, jumping on the computer stand and getting scratched behind the ears.
Q: When will you and Rene' begin your adventure?
A: I would like to be back home just after Alex arrives. In order to accomplish this we plan to leave in a couple of weeks. The only change would be if Alex does not return as soon as he hopes.
|peek-a-boo, I see you|
A: I miss my favorite toys. I have three scratching poles, a tunnel, boxes to hide inside of, crinkled paper tubes, beer bottle tops and so many other toys. I like to spread them all over the house, but Alex will ruin the set up I have and put them back in the toy box. I also miss Alex. He scratches my tummy. That's one thing I won't let anyone else do.
|I really like the tummy scratches!|
A: Yes, I did. I think Domino did a great job of keeping me entertained. She has a fun side to her that I will remember long after the car pulls out of the driveway. I think I may just come for a third visit one day :-)
