Hello! My name is Matty, and I am about 4 years old. I am a beautiful short hair Calico.
I've got a rescue story that I would like to share with you. About 4 years ago I was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Because I'm so cute and friendly (hello - I'm a Calico!) I was adopted. I lived with a lady that got me a friend to hang out with. But one day she was no longer there. Neither was the furnishings I used to lounge around on or any food. My Owner moved out and left me & my friend.
Landlord found us and brought us to the shelter. Many shelters are located in very rural parts of Illinois and the workers there remembered me, but they noticed I was a bit different. If you look closely at my eyes, they are cloudy. Shelter thought I was blind, so they put out a bunch of emails to rescues to help me and my friend.
I came to Treasured Animal Rescue and I went right away to the vet. Vet said I have my sight, but I have something called cataracts. Did you know cats can get cataracts? That cloudy look on my eyes? We can but I can live a normal life just like any other kitty.
Some might think oh, this poor kitty girl but guess what? I can climb up cat trees just like any other cat. I know where my litterbox is, where my food is and more importantly, I know when my foster Mom goes to bed because I climb up on the bed and I give her little nibbles on her chin. I pester her until she gives me ear scratches and rubs my belly. Then I curl up on her shoulder and we both go to sleep.
There are other cats & dogs that live in my foster home, and I am fine with all of them. I'm not shy. I would call myself very confident and love attention. I'm a quiet girl but you will hear my purrs when I'm happy.
I don't know why my Owner left me in an apartment but it's part of my story and I hope when I get my forever family they will never leave me.
Are you ready to have someone nibble on your chin and then get happy purrs as we both fall asleep? Will you let me sleep on your shoulder or pillow? If so, I'm your gal!
