Sasha showed up in a suburban west county neighborhood over two years ago. Neighbors kindly fed her, but she demanded much more attention than the street life could offer. She was finally taken in and became a foster cat with Tenth Life. In her former life, Sasha had a family. She was already spayed and front declawed. Unfortunately, her declaw job was pretty brutal- some vets have said it's one of the worst they had seen. Her paws looked like paddles and parts of her bone were growing back, causing her a lot of discomfort. We worried Sasha was in pain, so we had a special vet perform paw repair surgery, using a laser to remove the processes that had grown back. Now Sasha's paws look dainty and lovely and she uses her paws to reach out and hold our hands.
When Sasha first came to us she would get upset a lot when we left her alone. It took her a long time to understand that she was safe, that she would always belong and be loved. She has dramatically blossomed, though she requires someone who is alert to her moods and can read her cues when she has had enough and gets overstimulated, as she will nip in some situations. Sasha also needs to be the only cat.
Nicknamed Tsarina, she will demand to be petted, and will even will roll over on her back to have her belly rubbed. She is also a real talker! She will have many conversations with you. The right person will have a darling companion with sweet Sasha.
