Losing my cat Abby in March 2010 to kidney failure had been devastating but I was ready to move on and knew that a new feline friend may be just the therapy I needed to go forward. I knew immediately I wanted to adopt from Animal Humane Society since I have had such success with my first cat Boots who is now 14 and the most lovable and grateful cat. I truly believe shelter cats are the best pets to consider because I believe deep down they know they have been saved and will love you to death.
I had periodically looked at the Animal Humane Society website for pictures of cats that I may consider. The moment I saw Sasha I knew I had to have her. She just looked so sweet and precious and those beautiful eyes just stared out at me. She had only been at the shelter briefly after being in foster care and taking care of her kittens from a recent litter. She was very thin after giving everything she had to her kittens. It was now time for her to be given something back in return.
I was worried about her weight but only briefly. She seemed to eat me out of house and home those first few days. I had her back to the vet two weeks later and she had already gained 2 pounds. When I first got her home she was very timid but she quickly came out of her shell. She seemed to have more energy than any other cat or kitten I have ever seen. She loves to run away from me and then peek around the corner ready to pounce the minute I walk by. I have called her Psycho Sasha for her crazy behaviors but also Sweet Sasha for the times she just wants to cuddle and be so close to me that she is nearly covering my entire face when laying by me.
She is such a blessing and wonderful addition to my home and I am so thankful for Animal Humane Society for taking care of her as well as all of the other animals in need.
