The people who know Rowley best don’t have a bad thing to say about him! This handsome man came to the ASPCA from a home with many other cats. He tried to flee from anyone who came near, so it was clear that Rowley wasn’t at all used to being around people—and he didn’t know all the good things they could bring. Luckily, time in a comfy foster home has done Rowley well!
After being loved and cherished, Rowley has come to realize that life with humans is actually pretty great. It took him a few weeks to settle in and begin to feel comfortable—and we would expect a similar timeline in any adoptive home—but once he started to come around, Rowley began showing us what a great cat he is. Rowley has a playful manner that can’t be beat, and he absolutely adores playing with plastic balls, fake mice and feather toys. Particularly, Rowley loves chasing after quick and erratic-moving wand toys! Rowley is the type of guy who prefers a slow approach and attention on his terms. He’s a-okay with gentle pets around the head and is great at using his body language to let his humans know when he’d like more and when he’s had enough. But trust us—he uses his voice, too! When he wants attention, playtime or snacks—oh, so many snacks—Rowley has no qualms demanding them with some cute but constant meows. And after all is said and done, Rowley is always up for a quick cat nap on the bed or his scratcher.
Rowley would do best with an adopter who has some experience with kitties like him. He’s ready to be the king of the castle—so no small kids, dogs or other cats, please! We do, however, think he could do well with teens. If you’d like to adopt Rowley, please complete our Cat Adoption Survey.
