Important Note

Rosemary is best friends with Cheddar. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!


I am Rosemary, a Maine Coon dark tortie. I also have a brother – Cheddar – and he is a bright orange Maine Coon! We are BOTH long–haired and not yet 3 years old. We are from a litter of FOUR KITTENS that were all taken to a shelter along with our orange mother. The shelter accidentally let our beautiful mother out and she escaped, but we were only 4 weeks old. Because they do not support kittens under 8 weeks of age if they do not come in with a mother, we were very lucky that we got out alive and Sugar Plum Angels Rescue took us in and cared for us! Our litter of FOUR kittens were all fostered by another mother (who had two kittens of her own but loved ALL of us so very well) and so we got lots of love from a mother kitty. Our surrogate mother is Mrs. Violet Rose – and she has been adopted by a WONDERFUL family! One of our brothers was adopted (Sweet Potato) and Posey (gray tabby Maine Coon) was also adopted -- by wonderful families.

We are loving, sweet, and though we are shy, we like to be held and loved and we like to play with toys! We would LOVE to have a permanent "happily furever after furry tail home" with gentle, soft and patient people that would LOVE our beautiful coats, our beautiful and sweet personalities, and allow us to be a special part of their lives. We'll let you cut our nails and comb and groom us, but we are not going to be singing and dancing on Broadway (just yet). Please give us a permanent, loving home for the rest of our lives, and then we can bring a LOT OF JOY to you as part of a loving and permanent family home!


About Sugar Plum Angels Rescue (SPA Rescue, Inc.)

About Our Rescue Group...

We usually take in loving and friendly cats and kittens that would otherwise be killed at high kill county shelters. We specialize in helping cats and kittens that the public animal shelters are often too overwhelmed to care for and we try to save their lives whenever we can. The vast numbers of wonderful, friendly, and beautiful cats and kittens far outnumber the available spaces in nonprofit rescues -- so it is very difficult choosing who to save. We do our best to help some of the most unfortunate and spare no expense in helping to save their sweet and innocent lives.

Our cats are always kept in loving homes, so they will have an easier transition into your home after they are adopted.

To prepare our cats and kittens for their loving homes, we provide treatment and testing that includes: spay/neuter, vaccinations, treatment for the parasites that can often come from shelters or outdoor living, including round worms, tape worms, fleas, feline intestinal protozoa such as coccidia and giardia, ear mites and upper respiratory infections. Our cats are also FIV/FeLV negative, heart worm negative and litter-trained.

SUGAR PLUM ANGELS RESCUE (SPA RESCUE, INC.) is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity that rescues cats from high kill shelters in Southern California for adoption in San Diego County.

OUR MISSION: Our mission is "no pet left behind", trying to save the beautiful treasures (these rescued pets) that have been discarded into public shelters -- as if they were trash. These rescued pets are WONDERFUL and BEAUTIFUL all of them!

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters are required to fill out an application and, if approved, give an appropriate adoption donation for the pet, and to sign our contract. Contact us by phone or email and we will be very happy to bring the cat, or cats, that you would like to meet to our weekend Poway Petco Adoption Event.

Adoption fees vary. Note that the adoption donations do not fully cover all of our expenses for preparing these deserving and special rescues for their forever homes. Therefore we reserve the right to select only permanent, indoor homes with owners who are willing to make the lifelong commitment to provide high quality food, veterinary care, security, time, space, and love for these wonderful rescued cats. The long-term welfare of our rescues is our most important mission of all.
