For at least two years Rosie lived alone on the street constantly being attacked and beaten up by the larger unneutered males in the neighborhood. A couple who recently bought a home there noticed Rosie and began feeding her. Immediately Rosie started staying close to their house and at night she would even follow the couple all the way around the block when they would walk their dogs. It became a ritual and was absolutely adorable. Even though Rosie was clearly desperate to find a bond with someone she was too nervous to let them touch her still at that point. They put a blanket out and tried to provide a safe spot for her. She loved it, but at night she would get attacked by cats in the neighborhood and the couple would have to run outside to chase the other cats away. The couple persisted to try and get close to her and finally they caught her. They took her to the vet to find out she had cuts and scratches all over her from the other cats but otherwise she was in good health. They would adopt her in a second but they can't because their larger dog is very aggressive to new animals. They couldn't put her back out on the street though so they had her in their bathroom for awhile until it becamse too dangerous for her to be in there with their dog so near. She has a spot for about another week right now, but then Rosie is without a home again.
I am hoping that if you are reading this then you might be Rosie's answer. This cat so deserves an amazing home. She is still nervous with new people, but who can blame her. She has been through a lot surviving on her own. She deserves to be safe now though and when she is safe she blossoms. All she wants is love and if someone is patient they will get it. It is worth the wait. Watch her video and see (and hear) how much she loves it when she feels safe.
