Arrival Story:
Her and her littermates were trying to find a home outside of Wal-Mart. She came home to be Cinder's kitty.

She loves to give her dog, Cinder, kisses on her face and her legs. Sometimes she gets frisky and grabs Cinder's legs. She recently was diagnosed with mammary cancer after having a large tumor removed (October 2005). The doctors say she may have a year to live. We will cherish every moment we have left with her. Mammary cancer is very common in DSH cats and male cats can get it too. Spaying and neutering early reduces the risk of mammary cancer. Ros was not spayed until she was four years old. Update: We found two more masses (July 2006) near the mammary gland that was removed last year. The masses were removed and she healed nicely. Oct. 2006 - she is still doing great, she is going one year since her original cancer was found. Original prognosis was one year, she is one strong kitty. Oct. 2008 - Still going strong! It's been 3 years since her original diagnosis. I'm still mean as ever to my orange baby brother, Clone. :) August 2010 - Roswell passed away at home after a few months of being sick. We learned her cancer returned, showing up in her lungs, and it metastasized to one of her paws. It was a heartbreaking experience and we miss her terribly.
