FemaleDomestic Shorthair


Sassy is a senior gal who came to the shelter when her former owner could no longer care for her. Sassy had some difficulty acclimating to the busy shelter environment and was a bit scared - so we've connected her with a foster home to care for her while we work to recruit a forever home! Sassy is just as her name describes - full of sass! This little diva enjoys soft pets and tasty treats but in moderation. Over the top petting gets her a bit worked up so someone who knows how to read her body language, and is okay with a kitty that's not an over-snuggler, would be the best fit. Sassy will be a phenomenal family member in a quiet home where she can relax and cuddle with you on her own terms. If you're interested in meeting this sassy puss - contact our foster team at
