Meet Rocketman

Add to favourites

Meet Rocketman! This handsome boy came from a home with 60 other cats.

When he arrived to the Surrey shelter, he was hissing and showed that he was incredibly anxious and scared. Time, patience, and food bribes have made him more comfortable.

The transition to the Vancouver shelter was a stressful experience for an already fearful kitty. Rocketman is slowly adjusting to all his new surroundings. It will take a lot of patience and time to show this sweet boy that he can trust people. Rocketman is food motivated which helps in building trust between him and people. He will do well in a quiet home with no young children or dogs. If you have a confident, friendly feline to show Rocketman that people aren’t so bad, this could help him emerge from his shell. Since being moved to a room with his best friend Kenny the Rockstar, he has become much more confident and brave. These two boys are inseparable and spend all day hanging out and playing together so they are looking for a home together!

His new family will have to be very patient with him, giving him a lot of time and space to adjust. If you have the energy and time to comfort Mr.Rocketman as he adjusts to his new home, please fill out an application through the SPCA website.

Please note due to the current COVID-19 pandemic our adoption process has changed. Please visit our website for more information. All adoptions are by appointment only once we have received an application.
