Meet Sassafras

Sweet Sassafras is dealing with a lot of change in her life. Her beloved owner passed away in February, and she has been living alone in her owner's home since then. Family stopped by weekly to clean litter boxes and put out more food, but Sassafras, already a bit of a shy cat, retreated further away from family. She gained some weight from the mourning and an open invitation to all the kibble she could eat, which then meant she couldn't properly groom herself and over time, her fur became very matted. These mats were so painful that is was like how a person feels when their hair is pulled.

Thankfully, Tyson's Place Animal Rescue was able to intervene. We brought her into our rescue. Our rescue's mission is to assist terminally ill people with finding new families for their pets, and this includes assisting families after the pet owner's died. We got Sassy into the vet as soon as possible and the vet had to shave her back to get rid of the mats, as you can see in the included photo. Sassy immediately felt better and has started to come out and about to let us pet her. She will even answer to the call of her name with a meow. She is a beautiful dilute calico, and once her fur grows back, she will be even more pretty.

She loves, loves, loves to head butt you and give you some love and loves to be pet. She is used to a quiet home, so she would do best without a lot of noise and activity to scare her into hiding. All you have to do is sit down and call her and she will eagerly jump in your lap, happy to get some pets.

She had full blood work, a fecal check, a urine check, rabies and distemper vaccinations, flea topical, and microchip, so she is one healthy cat and ready for adoption. Please email tysonsplacerescue@gmail.com or fill out an application at tysonsplacerescue.org
