Rosie was a shy 3 year old tabby who came to Gosport CP in October 2019. Her owner, Suzanne, was expecting to move house and could not take both her dog and Rosie, who had grown up with each other. Rosie was used to the run of the flat and being allowed out at night; she was a good hunter by all accounts, sometimes bringing birds into the garden!

This was borne out by Rosie's skill with cat toys, especially the fishing rod type, whilst being fostered by Sue and Dave. Unfortunately, she required some veterinary treatment, including dental work, and a tooth had to be extracted. She did not like being handled or groomed, but was gradually overcoming her trauma and shyness, and investigating the house when Grace and her partner called round to see her as potential adopters. They fell instantly in love with Rosie, and she was adopted by them in early December and has settled in really well, helped by having a lovely fire to sit in front of and play, as you can see in the photo below. In fact, Rosie has overcome her shyness so well, she even sleeps in their bed every night.
