Facts about Matilda

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 7482
  • Hair: Short
Matilda is named because she was the small and spunky one of her litter. She’s extremely playful and rambunctious, and needs to go to a home with at least one other cat – otherwise her outgoing personality may turn her into a kitty dictator!

Matilda is always running around her rescuer's apartment, and loves to interact with the other cats and the dog. It’s quite common to turn around and see Matilda right there – whether cleaning, sitting on the couch, cooking in the kitchen…Matilda is usually right there. She’s very curious and energetic, and a little sweetheart that needs other cats to help get out her energy!

When first rescued she had an issue with her right eye. The ASPCA diagnosed it as a corneal ulcer. Her eye therefore never healed, and her third eyelid is protruding and the eye underneath is milky. It does not hinder her at all, as she’s still as energetic and all over the place as you would expect a kitten to be!

Matilda is the prototypical kitten – curious, playful, energetic, and then a little purr machine that will curl up next to you on the couch or bed to take a quick nap, before she wakes up and starts attacking a toy mouse or running somewhere to see what is going on elsewhere in the apartment.

About KittyKind

About Our Rescue Group...

KittyKind is a New York City not-for-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group. All of us at KittyKind have opened our hearts and homes — and emptied our pockets — to save thousands of cats from neglect or abuse. Every cat we rescue is given food, shelter, medical care, a safe place to lay his or her head and most importantly of all, a reason to purr. We do not believe in rescuing a cat or kitten only to euthanize it if it has a broken leg or needs extended nursing care. We never give up if there is a chance of saving them. We take responsibility for each and every life we save and if a cat or kitten is unadoptable, they have a home with us for life.
We believe that animals are not property to be discarded, disposed of, or killed just for the crime of being homeless or unwanted. We believe that people should be friends, caretakers and protectors of animals. We believe that we must take responsibility for the life of every animal we rescue who through no fault of their own, is abandoned, sick, disabled, old or unable to care for themselves. We are dedicated to relieving their suffering, providing food, shelter, medical care and comfort until we can place them in a safe and loving home.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are vaccinated and tested for FELV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and if old enough, are neutered or spayed.
We will ask you some questions about your home and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. We ask you to sign the KittyKind Adoption Agreement.
We will always take a cat back FOR ANY REASON. We will also work with you to place her in another good home if (after a period of adjustment) the adoption doesn't work out.
We do ask for a $125 adoption fee to help cover some of our food and veterinary expenses. For certain purebred cats (Siamese, Persian, Maine Coon, etc.), we request a $150 - $300 adoption fee.
