**SAFE 05/22/16**MAKE THE FOURTH TIME THE CHARM FOR THIS SPIRITED SWEETHEART!!
SPUNKY SASHA IS WHAT JACKSON GALAXY CALLS A “TREE DWELLER”…..Those are cats that like to be in high places and SASHA certainly does!! SASHA’S former owner was fairly negligent in the care department, they didn’t get SASHA spayed and they didn’t play with her properly, hence she tends to play rough…..SASHA is an independent gal with a playful purrsonality….SHE JUST NEEDS SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS CATS!! …Sadly, SASHA has a NEW HOPE rating. It seems her time at the HOTEL ACC has just made her more afraid and uncomfortable…THIS LITTLE LADY HAS A LOT TO OFFER THE RIGHT PURRSON!! Please be sure that she gets that chance by offering to FOSTER or ADOPT!! If you need assistance, email [email protected]
