A C.L.A.W.S. volunteer had been helping to trap and neuter a colony of feral cats. Unfortunately they could not be returned to site so alternative "homes” were being sought for them.
C.L.A.W.S. was asked to take a cat until it had been found a suitable place. We agreed as Beverley thought she might be able to place it on a local farm.
So that was how ROSIE came to C.LA.W.S.
She was very withdrawn, initially staying behind her igloo. As time went by she did come out of her bedroom and sit on the shelf at the front of her run but did not interact with her carer.
There was a gradual improvement but the real breakthrough came when we released one of the other cats into the general run across the front of the pen of six. Immediately Rosie sat up and took notice and even came to the front of her pen to say "Hello”. She is also allowing her carer to stroke her.
We think that she is another abandoned domestic (a phenomenon referred to in our write up about Bruce) and that with time and patience we shall be able to bring her round
