Happy 2013 from the West Orange Animal Welfare League and especially, Firehouse Rose!
Not too long ago, a very friendly cat started hanging around the local firehouse. The firefighters were sure she belonged to someone in the neighborhood, but she decided that the firehouse was her new home. Considering the speed of the fire trucks, this was not a very safe place for a cat, so one of the firefighters kindly scooped her up and brought her to the shelter to be safe. On his way out the door he said, “call her Rose” so we did.
Everyone agreed that this cat looks a little too well fed to be a typical stray, but strangely, no one has come looking for her. Now she’s ready for a new home, one that will keep her inside, safe and sound.
Our Firehouse Rose is the sweetest cat you could imagine. She loves people and attention, and appears to be the perfect lap cat. Could you be the one to make her new year happy?
