Facts about Rose
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
I am already spayed.
Hi there! I'm Rose! I am a 2 year old, short haired female. I came to WHS/WARL when my owner became overwhelmed with the number of cats living in her home. I shared a house with over FIFTY other cats previously, so I'm used to having feline friends. However, since my last owner had so many cats, it was difficult for her to spend time with all of us, so I'm still working on getting used to being petted and held. I'm shy in new situations and will need a patient owner that is willing to take some time earning my trust. Once I open up, I'm a very sweet cat, but new environments and noises easily startle me, so I would love to go to a quiet home where I can settle in slowly. Do you have a loving heart and room for another cat in your life? Come visit with me at Oglethorpe and see if I'd be a good match for you.
