Project Description


ROSIE…is a darling CALICO EXOTIC SHORTHAIR. She is 9 years old, around 6 pounds,  spayed and has her claws. She has a very pretty short, dense coat in bright white, orange and black and one lively gold eye.  Rosie came to our attention when a vet clinic called us to say that someone had come in with a cat whose eye was rupturing and they wanted to the cat put down. The clinic refused to do that and contacted rescue instead. Rosie was whisked into our care and immediately taken to one of our vet clinics where the painful eye was removed. She healed well from that but still had the issues of nostrils so small she could barely breathe and a mouthful of rotting teeth. Just think of how much pain this poor kitty has endured! ☹  So SPCR made sure she had a dental and laser surgery done on her nose as well so she is in great shape now!  However, Rosie will always be a Special Needs kitty because she has a significant heart murmur and needs to be on daily medication to keep her blood pressure low (it’s cheap, tiny and she takes it in canned food). She was able to get through THREE surgeries despite the heart murmur so we know she’s a fighter! 🙂 Rosie is a sweet little girl who is affectionate and  who can get along with other cats when introduced properly. The best home for her would be quiet, adult and very cat experienced (folks who have had other flat-faced breeds will be preferred). She needs folks who take over where SPCR left off…we did all the heavy lifting…all she needs is love! Special Needs Adoption Fee $25. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.
