It would be nice if every kitty who came into this world was surrounded by love from the instant they were born. Little Sass A Fras did not come into the world like this. She was found lonely and frightened. After she came to APA! she discovered love and protection from people. Now she is ready for her forever home to take over smothering her with lots of love and fun times!

Sass is a little beauty who is "sassy" and "fine." She is independent - and yet loves attention from her human.

She is cautious when first meeting people or other critters. Once she settles in and discovers that she is ok and still in a loving and warm environment, she becomes a relaxed cat.

She has demonstrated to her foster mom that she is very appreciative of her care for her. She is friendly, talkative, loves her belly scratched and purrs like a fancy T-Bird car driving down the highway with the top down! And she will stick very close to her foster mom.

It only took her a few days to become comfortable in her foster home. She still gets startled easily. That is why she really needs a forever home where life is calm and predictable!

Her "sassy" personality really comes alive when at play. Throw any toy passed her and watch her run and jump. She is a hoot! She likes to pretend she is a hunter and her job is to protect the house from any shady-acting characters. She does her job well. There is a crinkly rat toy that keeps returning. This rat toy looks like a shady character. So she jumps right on this rat toy and takes it into her mouth. No one is going to disrupt her foster home! She is also kind of proud of her catch.

She is young and still learning what different objects and critters are. Upon first introductions she may hiss in self defense. This is how she survived in the world prior to arrival at APA! Her foster mom is working on introducing her to their resident cat. She needs slow introductions to get used to another cat, animal or human of all ages. So far, this technique has shown good and positive responses from her.

Sass A Fras would do well in a forever family that is calm and patient with her. She is still just a little kitten and needs guidance to mature into adulthood. If given this opportunity, she can be a great companion!

Check this little gal out and see how special she is. Come quick!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
