Hi! Iím Rocco. I have been in my foster momís house for over a year. First she brought me home with a cold, which I finally got over, and then she didnít like the way I looked after I had been back in the Petsmart adoption center for a few days. She thought that my kidneys were failing, so you can imagine her surprise when the vet told her I was diabetic. She has taken really good care of me and fed me special food to help stabilize my blood sugar, whatever that means. When I first came to her house, I felt so bad that I didnít want to walk around or play Ė just lie around. Now I will chase toy and feather teasers a lot if she has time to play with me. I also love to be held and will rub against you if you arenít petting me. Even when my mouth was hurting me, I would still want to play and be petted.

Mom dropped me at the vet while she went on vacation last summer and had them remove my back teeth that were really bothering me constantly. When she got back, the vet gave her a good surprise. After the bad teeth were removed I didnít need injections twice a day any more. He suggested keeping me on the special diet as a precaution against the return of my diabetes and the lady vet at the clinic told her to sprinkle some power on my food once a day when my remaining teeth started giving me problems. Itís been several months with no recurrence of the mouth pain or the injections so I guess whatever it is, itís working.

Unfortunately, I am now considered a ďHigh MaintenanceĒ kitty because of my health issues. Mom says the special food she is feeding me is more expensive than the special diet her fur babies are on for their kidneys, but she can buy several bottles of the powder for my teeth for the amount she spent to have the bad teeth removed.

Because her babies donít like me and will start fights with me, she canít let me run loose all the time. She says I need to find my Furr-ever Home so that I can run and climb and gets all sorts of loviní that she canít give me. Do you have a warm spot and a nice lap for me? Can you give me lots of love? If so, can you talk to my foster mom about giving me a new home? You can contact her at (405) 823-2519, her name is Rebecca and if she canít take the call right away she will call you back as soon as possible. Adoption Fee.

Pets that are too young for altering come with a spay/neuter certificate that is redeemable for a spay/neuter procedure with a Pets and People participating vet. You are required, by contract, to fulfill this procedure when adopting a pet this age by either redeeming the certificate or by use of a personal veterinarian.
Some of the pets' biographies have comments written about them such as "Litterbox Certified", "Housebroken", etc. A lack of comments on a pet's biography does not necessarily mean the pet lacks positive characteristics.  Since we rescue from kill-shelters, we have very little information about most of our pets.  For this reason, we offer a 7-day foster adopt program.  Take any pet home for up to 7 days and if it doesn't work out, receive a full refund of the adoption fee.  The pet may be exchanged at no additional cost up to 30 days.
