in Oct 2010. Over two years ago, I
adopted a very shy adult cat named Rosalie. I
saw her at PetSmart for weeks and wanted to give
her a home where she would be safe, even though
I was quite sure that she would never be a lap cat
or possibly even handle able. It was obvious that
she was abused in her past. Itís been a long road to
gain her trust and I am happy to say that I finally
did. She comes when I call her and as soon as
she hears my voice when I come home from work,
she greets me with a squeak from the stairs. She
sleeps in a pile of cats at the bottom of my bed
every night. And (finally) in the past couple weeks,
she has begun to trust me enough to let me pet
her and comb her. She is just a beauty and I am
so glad that I adopted her. She shares her home
with 5 other furry friends, cats Munchkin (also
adopted from ACT), Tucker and Samson and my
two German Shepherds, Morgan (a mix) and
Chevy (a PB black shepherd). Together they
make a happy, furry family.
(Denise Silva's foster): She was adopted
from Animal's Can't Talk on October 16, 2010.
I had watched her at PetSmart for a couple weeks
- but since I had a cat with feline leukemia, I
wasn't able to adopt her. While she was there,
my cat passed away. I immediately thought about
Rosalie. She has found her forever home along
with two other kitties, Munchkin (Sookie, also
from ACT) and Tucker and our German
Shepherd mix, Morgan. She is so sweet and
has come a long way from the timid cat I brought
home . She hid almost all the time and when she
saw me, ran for cover under the nearest bed.
Who knows what happened to her before she
came to ACT. But now she comes out and
follows me around, squeaks for her breakfast -
and when it's quiet I find her coming downstairs.
She's curious and just beautiful. Her foster mom
did an excellent job with her and I will continue
the work she started. Rosie's story is just
beginning. I hope that someday she will come
for pets and attention, but if she doesn't, that's OK.
She is safe here and can live a happy life.
