My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Matilda (Tilly) is a sweet but shy 2 year old DSH. She was rescued with her mom and 2 siblings from a farm in which it appeared they had been dumped. They were surviving on compost and kibble stolen from the farm dog. She was caught two days after Christmas 2021, and her mom the final remaining at the farm was caught a few days later. Two of her siblings have since found their forever homes but Tilly and her mama are still looking! Tilly is a tiny thing weighing in at 6lbs but makes up for it with her big personality. She’s very timid due to what appears to be a history of abuse (specifically by men, and/or someone wearing a windbreaker) but warms up after being offered any wet food or fish treat. She is now a love to her foster mom and is quickly becoming inquisitive and adventurous around her friends and family. She loves a good 10 minutes of scratches and love before getting out of bed. She also has recall to her name and even knows the phrase “Til, ready go bed?” and will run to curl up at night. She’s in great health, up to date on all vax/medical care. Tilly needs to be adopted to a home with an existing cat or with another cat as it is unlikely she will thrive without social contact as she has never lived without another cat. Her mom (Bellatrix/Trixie/“Mama”) would be a great option if you have room in your home and heart for two!
