Meet Rocky!.. This handsome cat is 2 years old, who was surrounded by his previous family for not tolerating and fighting with their other cat (hence me calling him Rocky!).
This is his first day in my small apartment (a huge difference from his cage though). Given that my place is a one bedroom with a den (which I use as an office), I turn the den into his sanctuary room by placing my foot stool and large boxes in the entrance so he can feel safe.
Rocky and I have met a week ago in the shelter, and I have visited him a couple of time until he was cleared medically. So it seems he is not terrified by my presence rather the new environment. We played together, he ate a bit, he got pet quite a better and had naps, two of which were not on his bed haha (how typical).
He went exploring the rest of the apartment, so I think thats a good thing, but he is obviously scared as he felt like spending sometime under the couch and in a bit of darkness on the office's arm chair. he was born on August 10, 2014, which means I just missed his birthday.
Hopefully we will have many more together !!
He purrs a lot when he comes close to me, I am hopeful that this is a good sign.
