Pet of the Week: Rosie McCracken, an affable tabby with a playful foot fetish

Rosie McCracken can do it — if by it, you mean adapt to new environments and befriend both animals and people.

Like previous Pet of the Week Olive McCracken, Rosie came to her friends at Merrifield’s 4Paws Rescue Team from West Virginia:

Rosie was found on the streets in rural West Virginia. She was fostered by one of 4Paws’ network rescues before being given to 4Paws to take to Meows Corner. She is a petite silver tabby who only takes a couple days to become comfortable in her new environment. She will come when her name is called and likes playing with all types of toys.

Rosie enjoys being around people and getting pets. She has lived with other foster cats and showed no reaction to a calm mastiff dog. Rosie would do well in an active home with children of all ages. She will chase your feet under the covers but tolerates having her nails trimmed, which helps! She loves the company of other cats so will need at least one cat in her new house.

Rosie likes to nap under furniture and on beds. She also likes to observe the birds and squirrels in the back yard and play footsie under the door with her foster’s other cats.

Rosie’s estimated date of birth is October 15 2020. She has been spayed, microchipped, tested negative for FeLV and FIV, and vaccinated. She has been eating Fancy Feast wet food and Blue Buffalo Sensitive Stomach dry kibble.

Are you ready to sign up to give Rosie a new, permanent home?
