Facts about Sassy (Sassafras)

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Medium
Meet Sassy (Sassafras). Sassy is about two years old; she has been felv/fiv tested (negative), vaccinated, and spayed. Sassy was given up because after she had kittens the owners decided that they'd rather have the kittens than Sassy.
Sassy is indeed sassy. We were going to change her name but somehow the name Sassy fit this little girl. Sassy loves to play and play - of course - she's a young cat. She particularly loves to play in the cat tunnels and races through those. She also likes to play with catnip filled toys and cat dancers that she can chase and jump. Sassy tolerates other cats but is not best friends with them. She tolerates wel mannered dogs. She is very friendly with people but at this point would seem to be happiest as an only cat although she has taken to playing with select cats in her foster home. She does not like to be carried around but loves attention.

Cause for Paws is a small all-volunteer Minnesota nonprofit 501 (c) (3) group whose main focus is on finding homes for stray and abandoned cats and kittens. Cause for Paws fosters these cats in our own private homes, we don't have a central facility. To find out more, please email Cause for Paws at or call us at 952-259-1483. The adoption fee is $140. Thank you.

About Cause for Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Cause for Paws is a Minnesota nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization founded in 1998. It is a small all-volunteer group of friends who love cats and want to make a difference for cats in our community. The small group's main focus is helping stray and abandoned cats and kittens find loving, permanent homes. Cats are fostered in volunteers' homes; there is no shelter facility. The goal of every Cause for Paws adoption is a home where the cat and the other family members -- both two-legged and four-legged -- will thrive. Prior to adoption, all cats are examined by a veterinarian,
Felv/fiv tested, vaccinated (including rabies and distemper),
spayed or neutered, microchipped and registered, fostered in a volunteer foster home to determine the kitty’s personality, and received treatment for flea/parasite prevention. As funds allow, Cause for Paws also provides spay/neuter assistance for owned cats in the community, through its Cause for Paws Spay/Neuter Subsidy Program. The work of Cause for Paws is funded entirely by donations.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Cause for Paws hosts adoption events at the Petcos in Highland and Roseville. We also have cats available for viewing at the Petco store in Roseville in their in-house adoption kennels. If someone is interested in seeing one of our cats, arrangements can be made to meet this cat at a time other than our scheduled adoption events. Our adoption events are typically held on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please see our website for specific dates and locations.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for a Cause for Paws cat is $140. There is an adoption application that is completed and reviewed prior to the adoption. This application will ask for a veterinarian reference and we will check this reference prior to an adoption. The application gives us an opportunity to learn more about the potential adopter and whether or not the cat that they are interested in would be a good match. There is also an adoption contract that is completed at the time of the adoption. Because we are an all-volunteer organization, we typically will respond to an inquiry within 24 to 48 hours.
