Facts about Rose

  • Breed: Burmese
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
**Rose is located in the St. Charles, IL area **

Poor Rosie! Rose was pulled from a suburban animal control as a kitten, where she was deemed 'unadoptable' for several reasons. She had clogged tear ducts, a condition that causes her eyes to be runny. Her eyes still water a bit, though the condition has cleared a great deal as she has grown older. She also has two toes fused together and nails that don't retract. This doesn't cause her any problems--her owners just need to make sure they keep her nails trimmed. And, luckily this sweet girl is not a scratcher at all.

Rosie has a beautiful reddish brown tint to her coat--perhaps part Burmese or Siamese. She is however, not vocal like either of these breeds. She is approximately 4 years old.

Rose is a sweet girl who only wants to be with her people. She actually shares the pillow at night with her foster mom. When she is not sharing her pillow she is laying as close as possible to her foster. If her foster mom has to move, she is back with her as soon as possible.

Rosie was adopted out a nearly two years ago, but found the situation too stressful and began having stomach problems. She went back to her foster home, where her tummy is nearly 100% better. She has occasional flare ups, usually after a skirmish with another cat when she is feeling stressed. (She never causes the skirmish, she just has such a passive personality more active dominant cats take advantage of...)

Rosie does good with most cats and has no interest in dogs, but she does best in a low stress environment. Since she is not a super active cat, she tends to do better with more laid back kitties--ones that are looking for a good napping and cuddling partner--because, hey, foster mom isn't around to cuddle with all the time.
