Hi, I'm Matisse and I am a gorgeous girl who keeps myself sparkling clean. Years ago I was a stray cat being cared for by someone who just didn’t have room for another cat. So she brought me to SBACC where I would be safe and I have lived here for a long time. I have "cattitude" and just don’t make a good first impression with visitors. I am very selective about who I allow to pet me. It takes patience and time for me to relax and trust someone new. I just need the right person who is willing to give me a chance and I need to be an only cat because I am not a fan of other cats. I really love treat so you might be able to win my heart with some yummy food or treats. I dream about a forever home with my own bed and window to watch the world from. If you love me, with time and loving care, I will learn to trust and love you back.
