I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
Hi! My name is Sassafras, and I am a very sweet young calico tabby mix girl. If you are looking for a loyal friend, I am the one for you. I will sit on your lap and snuggle for hours, help you with your laundry, your reading, your typing, and sleep with you at night if you will let me. I am young and playful and get along well with other cats and kids (as long as they are not too aggressive which scares me). However, I don't necessarily need other cats around, because my main priority is my human, as I am what you would call a "lap cat". My second priority is treats which makes me highly trainable. I like lots of attention and you will probably end up spoiling me. Which I will repay by spoiling you with lots of love, nose kisses, and snuggling. I have never lived with dogs or children before, but I am young and playful and get along well with others as long as they don't chase me.
I am about 1 year old and have turned out to be a pretty mellow cat despite the fact that I had to be very tenacious when I was a kitten just to survive. When I was only a few days old, I lost my mother and most of my siblings to a predator . A kind person found my sister and I, the only survivors, and brought us to Port Royal Veterinary Hospital. We were not hurt, but so tiny (smaller than the palm of your hand). One of the technicians decided to save us and took us home. We had to be bottle fed several times a day and boy were we hungry!I I must have been the runt of the litter because I was much much smaller than my sister Stella. I was way to tiny to have lost my mom because I didn't know how to eat food, I only knew how to suckle. I must have gone a day or two without food and I was starving! But I had the strongest desire to survive and I suckled that bottle with a passion. We grew and grew and with determination i eventually outgrew my sister. (Because of this experience, I developed, and still have, a very silly habit of occasionally suckling my blanket or a loving hand when I'm feeling very happy, even though I'm a big girl now.)
Once we were old enough to be spayed and vaccinated, our foster mom found us a home where we were adopted together and we all thought we would live happily ever after. But this is not the end of my story. After almost one year our new mom moved to Germany and could not take us with her. It looked like our destiny would be left to the Pound, but thankfully our original foster mom found out and drove across two states to find us and bring us back. (That's how sweet we are). So I am still looking for my forever home. My sister, Stella is also up for adoption. We are all grown up now, so we will be just fine if we go to different homes, as long as our new homes last forever. It's really not fair that I am up for adoption again because I am such a good girl and have so much love to give. My foster mom says I deserve a second chance. Will it be you?
