Featured Pet: Sasha

Sasha, our featured pet this week, is one of the sweetest and most gentle kitties at Desert Haven. Born in 2002, Sasha came to Desert Haven after her owner moved out of the area, abandoning her. At the time, Sasha was in her last term of pregnancy. Soon after, she delivered her kittens under the porch of the mobile home that was now vacant. For several weeks, Sasha had to search for food throughout the neighborhood just to survive and keep nursing her kittens. Finally, a neighbor discovered the kittens and took most of them in to be adopted out to his friends.

Sasha is a sweet, gorgeous long-haired cat who enjoys the company of adults and who will easily be coaxed to sit on your lap and let herself be groomed. She will sit up for you after she gets to know you, just to get a treat or two. Sasha was in foster care for a while to improve her self-confidence and she has adapted very well to the normal life of a typical cat at Desert Haven. She enjoys looking out the boxed window of the Cat's Place in Desert Haven's Cool Cat Neighborhood, enjoying the peacefulness of her surroundings. She accepts and even thrives in a household with other adult cats, as long as she receives her share of cuddles and attention.
