Meet Sassafras

Add to favourites

She’s mysterious, sleek, a lover of treats, and goes by the name Sassafras!

Little Miss Sass can sometimes be full of just that… Sass. She means no harm by her opinionated nature, it’s just all part of her charm. On occasion she may use her words prematurely, but she’s happy to apologize immediately by turning it into rolling rumbling purrs, and rubbing into your hand. Can’t blame a gal for having precaution with strangers!

Offer her a snack, and you’ll be bffs in no time. Especially if it’s in the form of wet food tubes or temptations. Give her a holler and a shake of the treats, then get ready to say hello to Sassafras at your feet! Post snackin’, now Sass is ready to get some affection. Extend a hand, and she will accept it gracefully. Full face rubs and tails held high! A few belly slaps are always welcome, as long as her feet don’t leave the ground.

Call it the mom in her, but Sassafras is very good at keeping a watchful eye. She’ll claim the perfect spot in your home (most likely directly in your walking path), and observe her surroundings comfortably. If any danger may arise, Sassafras will retreat to her safe space (also of her choosing) until it’s all clear. On a regular day, she gingerly trots about the home, weaving through your feet with that big purr of hers.

Sassafras enjoys the simple comforts- string toys, cardboard scratching blocks, and the company of other felines. Respectful, cat savvy dogs are cool too, but she’ll try fluff herself up for them first. Just don’t forget about her snacks!

If you are quiet and gentle like little Sass, and looking for a new companion, contact staff at the Powell River/qathet Centre today!
