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.
