Sass is a shy but sweet girl who was rescued after giving birth to her two kittens in a garden.
Sass was extremely scared when she arrived and it has taken a lot of time and patience to help build her confidence. She is still getting used to being touched and will let her people she knows and trusts gently touch her.
Sass will need time to slowly build up a bond with someone and will bring you a lot of joy as you see her grow in confidence over time.
She really likes and finds enormous comfort in living with other cats, so ideally she needs to be homed with another cat or to a house that already has a cat or two.
Update 1/3/23: Sass is now living with Hopscotch and are very happy ignoring each other, Sass has improved a lot, she is now exploring more and coming to the door to see what is happening and playing around a lot most. She is taking treats out of our hands and showing us that she wants to spend time with us.
Update 18/05/2023: Sass is still making amazing progress and is getting braver and braver. She now likes to sit at the door and watch us, especially when are having lunch (she knows how to get treats out of the staff). Sass is playing regularly and loves to play with her toy mouse. She now accepts gentle strokes once you have spent some quality time with her and she has had some dreamies.
Sass has lived with a few different cats now, and has seen them all get adopted whilst she gets left behind. She is a cat with an incredibly sweet nature who just needs a chance.
Please see this short video of Sass:
Our cats are rescues, that have either been abandoned, stray, neglected or abused. All homes need to have a home check either by video call or in person and we will provide advice about caring for cats or kittens. This is also a chance for us to see what type of home you can offer to one of our cats and to best match a cat with your home and family.
Following a successful home visit, we will make an appointment for you to come and meet the cats at the shelter and adopt. If you have picked cat/s from the website, you will meet them on adoption day.
We are prioritising homes that are local to our centre and these are the Canning Town catchment areas: East London, parts of North London and parts of West Essex.
If you can offer a home to a harder to home cat, we will consider a home outside these areas.
