This poor lady ended up at the shelter because the owner died.  She is very frightened in this environment after only knowing a loving home. Sassy becomes very tense when touched and spends all her time hiding in her box under her blanket. Does not repond to wet food or treats, have also noted that Sassy does not touch her food throughout the day. Not thriving in shelter enviorment and would do better in a rescue or a foster.
