Matty is a gorgeous three year old brown long hair Tabby with big brown expressive eyes. She is in good health, spayed, and tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

Matty was a stray and found extremely frightened, neglected, and abandoned. Her fur was terribly matted — we had to shave her. It is growing back nicely. That is why she was named Matty. She is a very frightened kitty. She does not want to come out of her cage because it is her safe place. Something must have scared her badly. She will let you pet her while in her cage because she is sweet kitty and welcomes the affection.

We recommend her being in a home with teen-age and up children. She needs a quiet environment. What Matty really needs is LOVE, PATIENCE, and TIME to become the sweet kitty she really is.

Matty is up to date with routine shots, house trained and spayed.
