My name is Matilda!
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.
Matilda came to us after her owner passed away and no one in the family could take her in. When the family began considering euthanasia, a neighbor called one of our volunteers. Our volunteer arrived to find a little cat in desperate need of medical attention and TLC, but with a lovely personality despite all of her discomfort. Right then and there Matilda went home to her new foster family.
Matilda had been living with a severe flea allergy and was covered in hundreds of scabs and had open bleeding areas where she had scratched herself raw. This sweet girl had been living her entire life with miserable itching, pain, and discomfort. Of course our first stop with Matilda was the vet, where she was given flea treatment and medicine to help her itching. The treatments were a success and within days Matilda was starting to heal.
Matilda is about six years old, but is still very playful. She has lots of energy and dedicated playtime each day is a must to keep her happy. In fact, we think she is catching up for lost time now that she is feeling so much better than she's probably ever felt in her life. Her favorite toy is a wand with a furry critter attached to the end. Her antics while playing are quite entertaining because she will spin on her back with all four paws waving in the air like a break dancer. A little catnip along with playtime is thoroughly enjoyed, thank you very much!
Matilda is a petite girl with bright orange eyes as big as saucers. Her fur has grown in beautifully, and she is now a lovely shiny black with chocolate highlights in her medium-length fur. She keeps herself impeccably groomed, but is not too keen on being brushed, though we are slowly working on getting her used to grooming.
Matilda has always been an only cat and she most definitely prefers being the one-and-only pampered princess. While she is not exactly a lap cat, Matilda loves be near her people and gives plenty of head butts to show her love. She is talkative girl and definitely packs lots of personality into her petite little body.
Because of the severity of her flea allergy, it is extremely important for Matilda's permanent home to provide regular flea treatment throughout her life. She is up to date on all of her vaccines and has been pronounced "all better!" by the vet, so she is ready to move in and start making herself comfortable in her forever home. Her adoption fee is $80.
Matilda, like all ARCF cats for adoption, has been spayed, microchipped, is up to date on vaccines, and has tested negative for FeLV and FIV.
