Hair Length: Medium
My name is Rogan, and my journey has been full of twists and turns! I was originally picked up as a stray by Cobb County Animal Services (CCAS). I was in terrible shape upon arrival, as you can see in my intake photo. I had multiple injuries to my face, I was suffering hair loss due to flea allergies, and I was absolutely terrified. I was given a box there as a safe space to hide in, to help manage my fear.
It turned out I was microchipped, and my original family was found. However, they had moved on and didn’t want me back; they didn’t even share my name. ☹ I had been missing for about a year at that point, and that year had been devastating for me. I faced challenges that I wasn’t equipped to handle, and frankly I’m just grateful to have survived. I contracted FIV during that time, and I developed a severe URI after being rescued.
This is when the HSCC stepped in. They pulled me from CCAS because they thought they could help me and give me a second chance. Their initial focus was on getting my physical health back and doing everything possible to build up my immune system. Once I was stable, they began to work on building my confidence and trust. My injuries healed, my fur grew back, and I became stronger and more confident every day. As you can see in my pictures, I underwent quite the transformation and am now a handsome, majestic boy!
Now that I’m safe and loved, my personality is able to shine through. I’m a total lap cat, and I love talking with human friends. I amuse myself by playing with my favorite toys, and I get serious pleasure from snuggling in comfy beds and blankets. I love to be petted and will return the affection with sweet kitty nibbles.
I’ve become a loving cat who thrives on companionship, and I’ve developed a special friendship with my suitemate, Schubert. He is also a handsome, dapper FIV+ boy, and we would LOVE to be adopted together! We would both do well in a calm household where we’d receive regular attention and affection, and we’d both do fine with gentle children older than toddler age. HSCC staff are readily available to discuss FIV with anyone interested in adopting an FIV+ kitty, so please feel free to reach out to them with questions.
If you think I would be a good fit for your home, please call 770-428-LOST (5678) to set up an appointment to come meet me! I have been neutered and microchipped and am up to date on all my vaccinations.
