Meow! My name is Matilda
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
I haven't always had an easy life. Two years ago I was a stray, living outside and raising kittens until a nice person came along and got us all inside to safety. My adorable kittens Duchess and O'Malley got adopted. Back then, I had no reason to trust people. I was scared and shy and wouldn't let my foster mom near me. That's all changed now. Snuggling in laps is just about my favorite thing to do! I'm so happy now that I purr almost constantly.
You can tell by the shape my ears are in that I've spent plenty of time outside in the cold. Now I love living inside, where I can keep my pretty, white coat all soft and clean. You have to admit that my ears are distinctive, if not all there.
I’m sure that you’ll forgive me if I’m shy at first with new people. I’ve had a lot of reasons to be cautious in my life. But now that I don’t have to worry about protecting my babies, marauding raccoons, freezing temperatures, or unexpected snowstorms, I can focus on finding myself a forever home. Someplace with soft beds in the sun, good food, nice people, and plenty of toys sounds great. Playing with toys is my other favorite thing to do!
I get along well with other cats, so I need to go to a home with another cat. I would love to be adopted with my friend Buddy or with Maggie and Kayla. Buddy and Maggie are the ones that made me see it's OK to trust people again. Buddy loves to be petted and to sit in laps, so now I love to be petted and sit in laps too!
If you’ll give this formerly shy kitty a chance, I will give you a chance too. For more information, call Molly at 651-295-3758.

By adopting a Feline Rescue cat you will be supporting a caring, no-kill shelter and making room for one more homeless cat. We are always looking for good, safe, loving homes for our many cats and kittens. We want to be sure placements are a success for both parties, so before we send our feline friends home with anyone, we ask you to fill out a basic questionnaire. Since we work with cats everyday we will be able to suggest a perfect match to your needs. If a sponsorship fits your schedule better, you may support a cat of your choice and we will send you pictures and updates. All of our cats are feline leukemia/FIV tested, fecal tested, neutered/spayed, vaccinated and all of our kittens are vet checked, fecal checked and given their first set of shots. All receive high-quality veterinary care and exams. We charge an adoption fee to offset these costs. Adoption Hours: We are open seven days a week for adoptions, but our hours do vary because we are staffed entirely by volunteers. Call (651) 642-5900 for specific times and more information.
