Calm, Affectionate, Sweet

Do you like to take naps? If so, you may have just met your match! Sauza is the queen of napping. As soon as your head hits the pillow, Sauza will be curled up right beside your head. Being petted is always welcomed when it comes to Sauza. She even enjoys having your arms wrapped around her! Sauza also enjoys having her white-as-snow fur brushed and will instantly begin to purr. If Sauza feels like she is not receiving enough love, she will come to demand it from you!

While naps and affection are a few of Sauza's favorite things, as an older gal she is not a huge fan of playing or talking. She will show interest in a moving string or feather toy, but she typically will not run after them. Rather, she prefers to "army crawl" after them or to paw at them, which is adorable! And when Sauza does talk, it sounds more like she is gurgling water or yodeling in a canyon!

Sauza and her lifelong human lost their home, and her human made the heartbreaking decision to surrender her. It was a sad and huge adjustment for Sauza, and she is looking forward to a calm home in with a loving human to cuddle with and a comfy bed to nap in.

Sauza was super loved and indulged in her previous life, and is a bit chunky as a result! Her new human can help her slowly and safely lose some weight to get to her ideal size.

Sauza has done well around older kids; she was shy, but calm and friendly to them. And, according to Sauza's previous human, she loves to be around other cats. Plus, Sauza is good with baths too! What more could you want in a feline friend?!
