For a New Family to Know
Sasha is described as friendly, affectionate, assertive, shy and talkative. She enjoys playing with laser pointers, was being free fed Blue Wilderness dry food, had an uncovered litter box with clumping litter and a scratching post made of cardboard.
Upon intake Sasha allowed limited handling. She allowed being collared however once removed from the carrier she began to hiss and growl and darted into another carrier. Because of this a picture had to be taken inside of the carrier and no other handling was attempted.
