Rocky is an 11 year old gentle giant weighing 7 kg with a huge fluffy, smoky grey coat. His favourite place to chill is in an empty bath, with the occasional drink from the tap. He is a quiet cat who seems content with his own company or sitting in the kitchen watching the family’s coming and going. He is not a lap cat but likes a chin tickle and belly rub on his terms, and enjoys the occasional hug. He does not scratch or bite and needs a quieter household, with no young children or other pets, to gain his confidence.

He came to the charity with early renal failure but our vets have confirmed that all his bloods have come back normal so it seems that his special diet of renal cat food is working 🙂 and he needs to remain on a renal diet for the rest of his life. He also has a luxating patella ie a dislocating kneecap but his knee does not prevent him from jumping and leading a normal 11 year old cat life, the vet reported that no intervention was needed at this point.

A neighbourhood with fewer cats and a safe outdoor space away from busy roads would suit Rocky.
Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
BWCR will cover the cost of his renal blood tests at Fernlea vets plus treatment on his knee if it’s ever required. It’s doubtful he’ll ever need an op but he may be more susceptible to arthritis in that joint now he’s an older boy.
