Hello, my name is Sassy. My animal id is #18648. I am a desexed female calico cat at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 16 years old. – P
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 19-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as animal behaviour – aggressive towards people.
Original Location: 10458
Sassy is at risk for medical reasons. Sassy is a geriatric lady who is hyperthyroid, and has underlying associated issues. Sassy is uncomfortable with touch, possibly due to not feeling well, and due to these medical and behavioral issues, we suggest she is best suited to a cat experienced, adult only home.
