We made a couple of visits to Paws and Claws at the end of last year and each time spent some quiet time with the very timid Sasha, and we fell in love. She was 6 months old when we got her, and we recently (July 14th) celebrated her first birthday.
She took quite a long time to relax in her new environment, which we were expecting, and even longer to come close to us. This was hard, but the rewards are worth the patience! She is still a little skitty at times but she can also be so affectionate. She is such a character!
We could not be happier that we took a chance on a slightly older kitty. We adore Sasha! We are very seriously considering adopting her a little sibling.
