Lort Smith (https://www.lortsmith.com/)
Rosie was a fifty buck rescue special from a pet shop in Taren Point; a ten year old surrender from the Central Coast. Her well-honed cattitude was clear from the get-go, hissing at children who just wanted a pat. She was a skinny little food thief with a quick temper, and in Rosie’s case, all this spelled ‘thyroid tumour’. Her treatment and recovery occurred in Melbourne and was thanks to the Lort Smith and a university veterinary team.
Now nearly fourteen, Rosie has become an only cat. She spends her life being indulged and adored, and she’s happiest on the lap of the man in her life. All I seem to do is supply the food and change the litter. She still raids bins. Classy girl.
Rosie generally wears an expression that makes you think the wind changed on a bad day and she just ‘stayed like that’, but she’s really quite sweet. I like to think she was a treasured companion who could no longer be looked after, that she came from a good home.
Sometimes majestic lion, sometimes curmudgeon, sometimes biscuit tin kitten. Most of the time fierce, independent and bossy; Rosie’s all cat.
