Today's Cat of the Day
Rocco, the Cat of the Day
Name: Rocco
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Tuxedo
Home: Clifton, New Jersey, USA
   Rocco runs his own blog, where he has interviewed such authors as Janet Evanovich, Michelle Rowen, and Carole Nelson Douglas. He is also the official spokescat for Nathan Fillion (Castle, Firefly) charity, Kids Need to Read, having raised almost $10,000 in two years of annual fundraisers held every July on eBay, and from anthologies his Human, author Toni LoTempio, has participated in. Nathan Fillion has Rocco's photo hanging in his dressing room LOL. Most recently he was the inspiration for his human's mystery series featuring a tuxedo cat named Nick which debuts from Penguin in December. the first volume is entitled, Meow if it's Murder. Rocco loves to hear from fans!

    Rocco was the boss of my other three cats from the moment he stepped out of his carrier into my home. He immediately struck up a rapport with my gold tabby, Maxx, and the two of them are thick as thieves! Rocco loves to play "catch" - usually when I'm trying to write LOL. He likes to bring me his "ballie" and play fetch - he was fostered before I got him and I think there must have been a dog that he learned this from. He is also fond of the "feather on a stick" and the laser point. He also likes to jump at the car headlights when they are reflected on the wall! Rocco's quite affectionate. When he was a kitten he used to curl up on my shoulder - if he did that now he'd break it LOL. He weighs in at 22 pounds (10 kg).

    Personality-wise, he takes a cue from Bruce Springsteen - he is "the Boss". Also, his theme song is Michael Jackson's, "I'm Bad." But in a good way.
