Meet Saffron

**9/6/2020 - Sponsorship Help needed. Saffron has been diagnosed with an over active and enlarged heart. She has been placed onto medication to help control and manage the condition. She has has x-rays and had medications prescribed. Her current vet expenses are expected to be around $250 but this is expected to increase over time. Any help with her vet care is greatly appreciated**

Hi I'm Saffron, Saffy for short.

I'm a sweet and affectionate little girl who thrives on cuddles, kisses and adventure. I might be a mighty midget but great things come in small packages.

Although I'm still half the size of my 4 annoying brothers, have little short legs so I run like a rabbit and was born without a tail I have never let these silly things hold me back. I'm very brave as my foster sister Roxy who is a Golden Retriever doesn't even faze me. She's so fun to sneak up on when she's sleeping and run after when it's playtime.

I have thrived since I came into care as I am a voracious eater. I adore my kitten bickies and wet food, although I have been told by my foster mummy that my table manners leave a lot to be desired.

I love playing with my brothers, chasing their tails, balls and anything else that moves but am also happy to have some quiet time on my own whether it be in our bed or on a blanket on the sofa while my foster family is watching TV. I have a habit of suckling on my brothers when they are sleeping or my foster mummy when we are having a cuddle, this makes me so happy and purr really loud.

You will fall in love with me as soon as you meet me.

Saffton is vet-checked, microchipped, vaccinated and flea/worm treated. She will be desexed prior to re-homing and will be available after 22/6/20 approx.

NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols.
