Hi, my name is Mattie. I am a beautiful girl that is just happy to be alive! You see, I survived Hurricane Katrina only because I was in a top cage at my animal shelter. Whew!!! I enjoy a nice warm lap and lots of scratches behind the ears. I do need a special diet because my tummy upsets easily. That is nothing compared to having my beautiful face around. If you are willing to let me be the queen of my castle, come visit. I just need a forever home to love me always!
Mattie is currently relaxing in a foster home and getting some well deserved extra attention. Please call the shelter for more information on her.
