Rooley never does anything by half -- he sleeps hard, he plays hard, he keeps vigilant watch over the apartment and he's never, ever shy when it comes to complaining about the service.

At 14 years old and facing stage 2 kidney failure, Rooley has slowed down a lot from his kittenhood, but he loves stretching out in wide open spaces and flumping next to you on the couch. He's extremely talkative and food-motivated; you will always be reminded when breakfast and dinner are. Loud noises like thunderstorms and the vacuum cleaner startle him, but he never runs and hides, instead prefering to very carefully check out the source of the disturbance. He lived with another cat 2 years younger than him for 10 years, and they got along great.

I've raised Rooley since he was 6 weeks old and fit in the palm of my hand. Chronic kidney disease means he may not have much time left, but I want to make sure those final years are full of comfort. It breaks my heart that I can't take him on my next move.
