Sassy is a 9 year old female Lilac Point Siamese Mix that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of. Owner has had Sassy for 8 years.
According to the owner, around strangers, Sassy is friendly/outgoing. Around children, she is relaxed or affectionate. Around adults and children, Sassy plays in a gentle manner. Around other cats, she is relaxed or affectionate and plays in an exuberant manner but, would sometimes hiss at other cats she saw outside. Sassy has not been exposed to dogs or other animals so behavior is unknown. She has never bitten a person or another animal before.
Previous owners stated that Sassy does not have any behavioral or litterbox issues. Owner did not trim Sassy’s nails so it is unknown how she would react. Sassy enjoys having baths, her coat brushed, being picked up/held, and being woken up from her naps. Sassy isn’t bothered by being put into a carrier and she meows during car rides.
For a New Family to Know:
Sassy is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, and independent with a medium activity level. Her favorite activity is chasing after a laser pointer. Previous owner stated that their favorite thing about Sassy is how she would greet them whenever they arrived home and how very affectionate she is. When in the home, Sassy would follow them around making sure to be in the same room and would usually sit on their lap. She was kept mostly indoors and is litter box trained. Sassy used an uncovered litter box and non-clumping clay litter. She was fed Purina dry cat food. Sassy also used a scratching post made of cardboard.
