Rosie the Rose - 100th Kitty to be Posted!!


Rosie was found at the Persian and Himalayan Rescue Foundation in Mill Valley, CA, a great organization. She is a red 2-year old Persian who was rescued by the group from a shelter after being left by her family(for what reasons we don't know). We had originally intended to adopt two Himalayan sisters, who had similar colorings to Shadow, our 19-year old whom we had lost several weeks previously, but couldn't resist this orange bundle. She has adapted beautifully and is growing in her hair. Although all her traits are cute to me (proud mom), her best is when she rolls over for a tummy rub and gently grabs your hand with all fours. Or perhaps when she sleeps on your chest snoring so loudly (smoosh face) with her very long whiskers going up your nose. We are very blessed. -Kathleen

She is a beautiful girl and I love the description of her personality. She sounds like she has lots of charm. Thanks for sharing her with us.

Emma's Kat said...

Good morning! She is so cute! Wish I could see her in person. Lucky Karen C.!! I don't know that I've ever seen a Persian in person! Terrible, huh?! She is a beautiful girl and too cute w/her shaved self! Would love to see her w/hair grown in!

Kathleen - We're all anxious to hear about her and Cairo! How are things going w/them?

How's Jake, Danielle? And everyone else?!

Emma's Kat said...

ML - If you're on today, hope you feel better soon! Stay rested! I too like the idea of calling the name and email address list...The Fuzz Family Tree. What does everyone think? Like, ML said, anyone who wants to be on the list can go thru me and I will make sure ML gets all your info. All the regular fuzz pack that comments everyday is on the list of course.

Deb said...

Rosie the Rose is beautiful. Love the description. She looks like such a sweetie. Please give her a tummy rub for me!

ML: HOPE YOU ARE FEELING BETTER. If you need anything, you have my numbers!

Deb said...

Oh, and congratulations on being the 100th kitty to be posted -- confetti falls!!!!

LOA said...

She is so cute Riquel will go nut when she sees he ahahahahha se is going to want her for SIMBA LOL she is funny looking but Beautiful lol

riquel said...

Aaaawww she is cute! Her nose is a little more squishy than his, but she kinda looks like my Simba (see March archives). Isn't it amazing, and disgusting how people can just dump off their pets for any or no reason at all. I know life throws some punches at you, but I would live in a box with my babies before I gave them up, or at least ask grandma to take them in for awhile. I guess that is because to me they are not cats, they are my babies, my children, hairy and a little funny looking, but my babies none the less.

Kim said...

100th CAT!!!! And such a beauty to be posted too!!! Kathleen, your description of Rosie just made her leap off the page and come to life! She is a lovely lady AND she loves tummy rubs!!!!!!

Kat, I just types a big ole congrats, got emotional too, and Blogger got rid of it!!! ARGH!!! Well, I'm not up to typing it all again so I'll say this, I'm so proud to be a part of something that was started because we felt the big kitties were being left out. I remember your first post! And then you made your site even better when you not only honored present kitties, but you also honored kitties past. That meant so much to those who loved and then lost their pet and you let us share is their lives. It takes a special person to care so much for her Fuzz Family! And Kat, you are special and I'm happy to have you as a friend. You ladies, you're all my best friends and I look forward to reading your posts everyday. And like a snowball, we pick up someone new every now and then, and they become a member of the family too. Thanks Kat, for being such a great Kat Master!

riquel said...

*sniff* reaches for the tissues....
ya, what she said!

Kim said...

ML, if you're up, read the posts then GO BACK TO BED! Get better soon, we're thinking of you!

Emma's Kat said...

Why thank you Kim!! You're so sweet and ditto to you! I'm so glad to have you as a friend, as well as all my Fuzz Family!! It's so great having great kitty lover friends! That I can talk to endlessly about my kitties! And anything, for that matter!! And even though we can't be there physically for each other, we are definately there for each other in mind and heart! I love you guys!

Riquel - We'll have to get a picture from Kathleen of Rosie w/her hair grown out and then a pic of Simba and I'll post them together! Maybe they'll be online sweethearts like Casper and MBE...lol!

Deb said...

Ditto for Kim's remark. I have such a great circle of new friends. Hankie needed now!

Kat, where in Virginia do you live, I will have to visit you when we move up to Maryland. My daughter attends college in Lynchberg.
ML: IF YOU ARE READING THIS, THEN YOU KNOW YOU ARE BEING NAUGHTY AND SHOULD BE RESTING! SO....REST, DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS, GET BETTER!

riquel said...

Oh ya, he would probably like an online sweetheart! It would probably be nice for him to have a feline woman in his life that doesn't smack at him every chance they get, or pin him to the ground and stand on top of them, while they are screaming at the top of their lungs. He is 3 years old, so they would be purrrfect for each other.

riquel said...

that should have been stand on top of him

Emma's Kat said...

Poor Simba! lol

Deb - I live in Virginia Beach or VABeach as we say. That would be great!

riquel said...

It's kind of funny in a way. The first time it happened, my husband and I weren't in the room, and all of a sudden we heard this awful screaming coming from Charlotte. Well I took off to see if she was okay, cause Indigo is always chasing and harrassing her, I walk in the room Simba is on his back, Charlotte has her two front paws on him holding him down, and she is screaming at the top of her lungs. Simba is just laying there, looking at me like, whatever, but if it wouldn't be too much trouble, can you get her off of me? He is so laid back it is funny.

LOA said...

K I to want to thank u for this side i love to have my coffe and look at babys in the morning and see what u ladys ar taking about lol and i fell so out of place i dont know all the abb u girls got but leave it to me ahahahah

Mumma in Tucson said...

Balloons and invisible cookies for everyone!! Kat, thank you for all the hard work you have done, bringing us all together and really making a FAMILY of all of us.

THREE CHEERS FOR KAT!!

KATHLEEN-- Your sweet Rosie is just as cute as a bug's left ear! I, too, have always had a soft spot for himis, having been owned by 3 of them. I just love Rosie's summer cut, but I can't wait to see her in all her fluffy glory either.

ML--Rest and get better soon!!

Kim said...

Riquel, that's hysterical! I can see it now, "Uh, like, can you get her off of me please? She's ruining the vibe."

LOA, I'm learning them too. I'm not down with the lingo that much but I'm getting better! LOL!

Ya know Rosie, I forgot to mention that I had a Himi/Persain named Toby when I was growing up. Toby was the most laid back cat and LOVED belly rubs! He was all white, and I mean WHITE! We lost him in the snow when he was a kitten. From that day on though, he decided he liked being dirty and so always layed in the dirt. That cat had a bath at least once a week for the first serveral years of his 18 year life!

riquel said...

where's Danielle this moring?? I need my Stupid Trivia!

Emma's Kat said...

Riquel, You took the words right out of my mouth! lol I was just getting ready to type that.

Danielle - Hope all is well! You better have a good excuse! lol Mine was my hubby hogging the computer! It better be good! In all seriousness, I do hope all is well!

donna said...

Morning everyone!

Hi RtheR! So nice to finally see your pic. Kathleen, you are so wonderful to adopt Rosie and Cairo.

I can't believe this is the 100th kitty! Didn't we just get started? Kona was 3rd kitty back on March 23rd.

This is such a wonderful site to come to everyday. Like all of you, M,K, & W aren't "just cats"--there's no such thing. Like Riquel said, they are our babies.

donna said...

For those of you who also like horses, check out the mini on Pet of the Day:
http://petoftheday.com/

I wonder what our cats would think of that pet in the backyard :-)

donna said...

Sorry, sorry, sorry! But do go check out the video on Cute Overload. Oh my, those hesitant first steps.

http://www.cuteoverload.com

OK, I'll leave you alone for awhile...

Karen C. said...

Hi Rosie! Rosie is Adorable, with a capital "A", and so very SOFT! She has such a cute face and I love the big fluffy tail and the extra fluffy paws. I wanted to pet her more when I was there, but Rosie and Cairo were trying to figure out the new situation, so I thought I'd better not bug her too much. But she's so little and SOFT, I just wanted to scoop her up and cuddle her! Are Rosie and Cairo friends yet? I know it usually takes more time than this, but I'm hoping.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

So happy to finally see the lovely Rosie the Rose. What a beautiful girl. And now she has a sister. Congratulations. Rosie is something special and was worth the wait -- and she is the 100th cat! Wow!

I too like Karen S's idea of the Fuzz Family Tree, tomorrow I will have it finished (hopefully...). I had to get up to feed and walk the dog (ahem), HAD to check the two sites (Kats and PDJ). going back to sleep now.

Charley's nurse will be here at noon, and the housekeeper at 1, fortunately, and his physical therapist (whew), so he'll be busy. And I can rest without worrying about him (he has to be watched 24/7). Right now I have neighbors looking in on him while I SLEEP. Feeling better, if not, going to the doctor in the a.m.

Miss "talking" to you...ML

Karen C. said...

Congratulations on the 100th posting! I just put 2 and 2 together and came up with...uh oh. See, yesterday I was trying to catch up on some work that's been neglected for a while. It's filing and is an extremely low priority, but still... Anyway, it was near the end of March that I stopped bothering with it, and I was just thinking "What's been going on since the end of March that's kept me too busy to do this?" Now I know.

Emma's Kat said...

Karen - Rut-roh! lol

Claire said...

Good point, Karen-but so much fun!!!! A day isn't complete without checking onto our Fuzz sites for me. Congrats to Kat (100), GS and Danielle for providing us with these wonderful forums and so many beautiful cats and other wonderful pictures.

DEBRA said...

Wow concatulations on the 100th posting and concatulations to Rosie for being such a special kittie! It was really wonderful to read her story. THIS is a great site Kat!

Emma's Kat said...

Hi Debra! And Welcome to Kat's Cat. I can't wait to post your kitties!! Everyone make sure you check out Manx Mnews! Debra's kits are adorable! Ping will be posted(1st) soon!

Emma's Kat said...

And Debra! Wow, what a purrfectly great idea w/Secret Paws. I will be emailing my info ASAP!

Fuzz Fam - Check it out under her profile! It looks like great fun! Deadlines July 14, right Debra? I'm excited!

riquel said...

I missed something, what is Secret Paws...where is Debs profile, for whatever reason I can never access a new site unless it is through a link on Kat's Kat or Pet Djour...

Emma's Kat said...

Riquel, you should be able to click on Debra' name(in blue)and it will take you to her profile page. All the way at the bottom, you'll see her blog site, Manx News and under that the Secret Paws site. If you can't access the sites thru her profile I'll email 'em to ya.

momsbusy said...

danielle said...

Good afternoon everyone. I got in trouble at work and this is my only post for today. I will be on tonight 5:30ish. eastern time.

Rosie the Rose you are beautiful!!!! Congrats on 100 kitties.

Jake pulled out a stitch and we have to go to the vets tonight. He is eating a little bit. He gets mad after the meds so he doesn't want to eat. I will report later. Have a great day!

Ella's Mom said...

Good Afternoon All,

Kat I can't believe this is your 100th cat posted either. Boy does time fly! Love Rosie the Rose, its cute she likes belly rubs, wish my Ella did :-( Wonder how her and Cairo are getting along?

ML I can only imagine what you must be going through. Make sure you take care of yourself.

Ella sends purrs out to Jake and tells him to be a good boy and follow doctors orders!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Hi again, I'm back for a few minutes while Bear eats again. Then it's off to walk her. Wish dogs used litter boxes.

Danielle, what is with Jake?? Is he another of those little devil cats with the sugar cookie faces?

So Jakey pulled a stitch now. You have your hands full with him, don't you! Watch your mail, sent you something yesterday.

Okay, it's off to poop...for Bear... and back to rest.

Kat, thanks for the beautiful bowl of soup. So delicious and absolutely zero calories.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Hi! I see that we have a new "Debra" on the site. Welcome! I'm glad that I go by "Deb", that way we won't get confused.

ML: (STERN VOICE) GET TO BED! You need to rest!

Kim said...

Hello all, just checking in. Sorry that you got in trouble Danielle. I hope it's not serious.

Rose and Rosie, where are you? I need my daily dose of sane and insane. Wait, the insane would be me, wouldn't it?! HAHA!!

That's it, not much to report. I'm still emotionally drained from my post this morning! LOL!

OH, Sean will be home in two days, but who's counting?!

Emma's Kat said...

Yeah! Deb's name is now in blue! Now you just need to fill out your profile page! :)

ML - Your welcome of the soup. Hope it makes you feel a little better! :)

Danielle - Are you not gonna be able to post in the mornings now?
:( I haven't gone to check your site again. Going there now.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Hi! I finally figured out how to become an official Blogger -- I've already filled out the profile page! Kat: thanks for the "YEAH" -- by the way, one of the first places we want to go when we move to Maryland is Virginia Beach -- I LOVE BEACHES!!! So, we are fated to meet!

LOA said...

i gat a blog but i dont know what to do whith it ahahahahah

Emma's Kat said...

Deb - We live about 15 mins. from the beach! But do we ever go there? No! Sometimes, but rarely. I know, sad. :) Looking forward to meeting you! When does your daughter start college? I forget how old they are.

Riquel said...

I have a blog too....but I am having a hard time adding my links.... :o( just venting...oops wrong page for that huh?

Cecilia said...

Rosie, you are such a sweet fluffer. I would love to give you a tummy rub.

Cecilia said...

By the way, check out the video on Cute Overload.

Anonymous said...

what a beauty she is! i love your proud mom description of her!

Mannyed said...

She is the perfect cat for the 100th kitty to be posted! Where's the balloons, confetti and cake??

Emma's Kat said...

Mannyed - Deb threw some confetti earlier! Lol

Anonymous - We would love to know your name! :)

Cecelia - Isn't that video the cutest?!

Fuzz pack! Just emailed GS and she says hi and sorry she hasn't been around. Oh, and it is now G/TS(Gheeri & Toby's servant...lol)!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Kat1 -- I would LIVE at the beach. Not to "soak up the sun" -- got too many wrinkles already - just love to walk in the surf. Love the sound & smell. So, how far is Virginia Beach from Bethesda, Maryland? Tatum will be starting her Sophomore year at Randolph Macon.

danielle said...

He everyone! Good evening! I am on my way to bed. I haven't stopped since I got home. Running all around. I want to give a Jake update. The vet is not going to replace the stitch he pulled out so it will have a chance toget all the gookie stuff out. He is going to take a pill everyday for 10 days. He was taking liquid amox. but his face and paws just turned pink. (fighter) As did my clothes. Hopefully one pill will work. I chose to go back to the baby food. He is gobbeling that up. YEAH!!!!! Well I have court tomorrow and will be home. I am thinking about staying on the computer all day. I will hopefully be home by 9. 10 at the latest. I will do some posting then. Good night. I hope everyone is feeling well. I hope the migrane is gone. I hope the worries of vacationing children subsides. I will see you all tomorrow. I love my Fuzz Family!

Kim said...

Good night sweetie, take it easy!

Karen S. said...

Rosie is lovely! I love her smoosh face. Persians always look like babies to me, even when they are all grown up.

ML-I'm looking forward to getting my copy of the Fuzz Family Tree (I didn't know I was coining a phrase--I was just trying to be a little bit funny)--after you are feeling better. Take care of yourself!

Can't believe this is the 100th kitty! It really has been a wonderful first 100 days, with many more to come! Thanks, Kat! (Hope your area isn't flooded with all the rain on the east coast)

Must fo for now, His Royal Highness, Oreo the 1st is meowing my name. I am being summoned to lift him to his food dish. He never eats all of his food at one time. Unfortunately, Sammy, our dog, will scarf up anything that isn't nailed down. So, I have to keep the cat's dish on the counter top where Sam can't reach it. And, Oreo insists on being lifted to the countertop, as jumping up on his own is beneath him!

Karen S. said...

that was supposed to be "must go for now"--slip of the finger

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Hi everyone,
I'm up again -- you guessed it, Bear was hungry! Each time she has gotten me up, I've posted someplace. Poodle are hyper, even when they are 16+ years old.

When I woke up a few minutes ago, Missy Blue Eyes was right on the bed with me. Yea! This is only the second or third time she's done that. Bear fell asleep someplace else, usually she is right beside me.

Deb, I'm with you about the beach. Love it. I'm past sunworshipping, too. But love the water, the sounds. Have a friend in Tiki Village (Texas City near Galveston), love her house. It's built up over the water, you can barely hear each other talk for the ocean noise. We were thinking about moving there for retirement, but with hurricanes and all, I'm not sure.

Emma's Kat said...

Karen S. - No flooding in our area, but not far down the street, yes. They were starting clean up today and declaring Sandbridge and Back Bay as disaster areas. I too have a dog named Sammie. Sammie, short for Samantha. Is your dog a boy? You should send pix into PDJ! Would love to see your Sammy!

Deb - That's me too. I so enjoy walking along the beach at night and the smells and sounds. Don't like the sun and water. I hate swimming in the ocean. Won't do it! Nope! So, you're moving to MD? When? You probably already said, so I'll go back and read.

Emma's Kat said...

Oh, Deb - I'm not sure how far Bethesda is from me. When I get time I will try and find out!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Hi! Just got in from picking up my hubbie from the airport! Yay!!! I haven't seen him in three months! He will be here until Monday. Bethesda is about 2 1/2 hours from Virginia Beach. Not that far! Believe me, I will get there! We are moving to Maryland in August.

ML: HOPE YOU ARE RESTING!

By the way, just gave Bari a lesson in blogging, she is the lovely lady who has the torti family that needs a home, so look for her to "blog"!

Kim said...

I love the beach. I grew up in New Orleans but I was born in Hawaii. The ocean is in my blood. I AM a fish though, I love to swim!
