Rosie came from a local shelter where she was in danger of euthanasia because she was pregnant. A friend offered to foster her temporarily until she had her kittens and they were old enough for adoption. All of her kittens eventually found homes, but Rosie did not, even though she was taken to adoption events. Rosie was an all black cat among many other cats, and we were afraid she would never be adopted. This was at a time when we were just starting Mollie’s Cat Place and had not decided to concentrate on older cats. We took her in.
In 2021 Rosie developed stomatitis and had to have most of her teeth extracted. We were concerned because we assumed she would not be able to eat dry food, and she had never liked wet food. We needn’t have worried; after a week or so her mouth was healed and she was eating dry food just as she had before.
