Sassy spent the first 7 months of her life in a cage at a municipal shelter in Florida. She was rescued by our transport partner Good Karma, who found Sassy a loving foster where she spent 5 months before coming to Vermont. According to her Florida foster mom, this formerly poorly socialized young cat absolutely blossomed in foster care! “She loves to be petted and she is very playful. She LOVES her mice and expects treats a few times a day! She always wants to be near you, at your feet or on the edge of the bed at night. Her fur feels like silk and has Little Miss Sassy has the cutest little squeak for a cry. Miss Sassafras will be a lovely cat to adopt and then watch her as she continues to blossoming as she ages.”

While in Vermont Sassy has been living in another foster home with 2 other foster cats and is doing wonderfully! Her most recent foster mom had this to say, “Sassy is quite shy at first, but is motivated to come out of her shell if food or treats are involved. Once you’ve gained her trust, she loves being pet and having her cheeks scratched and purrs in return for the attention. It took her a few days, but she now has joined her friends and my two cats in being part of the family. Her favorite spot is on top of the cat condo. She’s so beautiful (and I think she knows it)!”
