Why Rocket is so special:

One reason Rocket was a special cat is because he became a "one-person" cat. As a kitten, he loved everyone, but when he grew up, he didn't like anyone but me. He thought I was his "mother" because he needed to be nursed with a baby bottle when I first got him. After he was weaned off the bottle, he still would "nurse" on my neck. I let him do this his whole life. He would put his arms around my neck and nurse for a few minutes, then fall asleep. We both loved it. He was wonderful.

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

He would say that I loved him more than anything in the world.
