Facts about Matty Graystone

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Long
Matty (10 years old) is an older but beautiful soul who had somehow ended up on the streets, relying on the kindness of strangers for at least 4 years before coming to Tails High. Her name derives from the fact that her coat was so badly matted when she arrived it had to be shaved. Now that it’s grown back in she’s learned to enjoy frequent brushings. Although cautious in a new home, once she decides that you’re an acceptable person she will flop down on top of your feet in order to hold you in place, so that you have no choice but to pet her. She then flips over onto her back for rubs, purring so loudly that she can be heard in the next room. She chases the laser pointer like she’s still a kitten, and will even answer when called, quickly trotting over. She enjoys lying with her head on your lap, or curling up in a cat bed (a suitably comfy one, of course). She’s very tidy about the litter box, never kicking litter out onto the floor. While willing to share her space with other cats, she prefers to remain aloof from them. Unless of course it’s her special friend Squeakie, who has been fostered with her for over a year now. While they can be separated, we’d love it if our odd couple could find a forever home to live out their golden years together.

About Tails High, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Organization

Tails High is a cat rescue and adoption organization based in Alexandria, Virginia founded and staffed by compassionate volunteers who find joy in placing stray, abandoned, or homeless cats and kittens in permanent loving homes. We know that there is a perfect rescue cat for everyone.

In making wonderful feline-human matches, Tails High is dedicated to helping both rescued cats and kittens and their human families by providing wonderful cats to people looking for a sympathetic ear and a soft purr. We believe that cats are ideal companions: highly intelligent, and therapeutic.

Our Cats

All our cats and kittens have tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, are current on their vaccinations, and have been or will be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We spend a lot of time playing and cuddling with our rescue kitties, as well as socializing them, and making sure they learn to love their people as much as their people love them.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a Foster-To-Adopt program that allows you to test the cat in your home for a period of time on a trial basis before finalizing the adoption. In fact, when you have another pet in the home (whether it’s a dog, another cat, birds, rabbit, ferret, etc.) or you have young kids or elderly parents living with you, we recommend that you do a Foster-To-Adopt to make sure it is a good fit for you and your family as well as resident pets and the Tails High cat or kitten(s) you’ve selected. Our goal is to make every effort to match people with the cats or kittens that fit their lifestyle and vice versa.

What costs are involved in adopting a cat from Tails High?

All of the cats and kittens at Tails High are fully vetted at the time of adoption. They are FELV/FIV combo tested, vaccinated against rabies and distemper, and they have been spayed or neutered to protect against the feline population increasing.

As of May 2015, the adoption fee is $145 for single cat or kitten and $225 for a pair. This is a huge savings to the adopter considering if you took the same cat to a veterinarian for a spay or neuter surgery and vaccinations the cost would be upwards of $300-500 per cat.
