Rosie has been challenging, but equally she has been full of love and wanting fuss and cuddles, she can be a different cat when you are on her wavelength with body language and understanding. She is a real Cat Person’s Cat, but don’t underestimate her, she needs someone who understands what it is to be Rosie, and is experienced in the ways of cat bonding; she came from a very loving home who tried hard with her, but she would still bite and scratch if she felt you overstepped the mark. Well that is Rosie, so we’ll let her tell you her story, she does it so well. My name is Rosie and I’m a cat, and I do mean a Cat! I can be prickly and spikey, and cuddly and loving all in the same space. I am beautiful to look at, but not one to be rushed into a relationship, I like who I like, you’ve met the type before, a cat. I love to sit on your lap and have a fuss and cuddles, but when I want it, which is not too often, and not too long. I’m a cat with a special need, and I need to find that special person who understands the inner cat. When I make a bond it is heartfelt, and I have made a couple of those here at Church Knowle but I desperately want a Forever Home of my own. I’m not going to lie, I can be difficult and I wouldn’t want to be in a home with other pets, or young children, I like the world to revolve around me really when I come in from exploring. My perfect home would give me access to the outdoors and still be able to pop in for cuddles when I need them. I don’t want to be a house cat I’m independent, and I like it that way, I’m also full of personality and spirit that can’t be contained. It’s going to be important that you understand me, because if we get this right we are going to be made for each other, but it isn’t going to be a walk in the park.
