   Leave a treat for Roscoe

'scoe, Roscie

Quick Bio:
-cat rescue

Going outside to sit in the fence, like a dog. Sneaking out every once in a while.

Having to take his asthma medicine every other day.

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the 6' cat tree - if Tugger's not up there!

Favorite Food:
Only gets dry, and a treat every now and then. :-(

Getting into trouble, and trying to fit into small spaces. I think he has REVERSE Body Dysmophic Disorder. Ex.- he once tried to fit into an empty check box! He's ~15 pounds!


Arrival Story:
I found him on the I-Beams under a bridge. I was so afraid he'd fall down into traffic, and/or that he & I would slide down the steep ramp if I got hold of him. He had a name tag that I traced to 6 miles from this bridge. The owner used to live there, but had moved to the "crack motel" just past the bridge. It took a while for the owner to reply to msgs left for her. He was named Bonequa then, and nicknamed Mr. Bones. I returned the cat to the owner at the motel and told her if she ever couldn't keep him to please call me back. She called me that evening. I initially gave the cat to friends who'd recently lost their dog. They named him Nathan Jr. Shortly after getting him, they adopted a foster dog who tried to eat Nathan Jr. So, I took him back, and named him Roscoe. He's been here ever since.

I had to euthanize Roscoe today at ~4:40pm, January 9th, 2005, for acute onset of repiratory problems, probably due to cancer. R.I.P., my buddy. I'd like to thank Dr. Driggers, Hilary, and ICU at NCSU-VTH for their professional and caring "cage-side" manner.

I've Been On Catster Since:
