Shortly after being found, Matilda had kittens, though the vets says she is only a year old. She likes to sleep with you, snuggle next to you, and will jump in or let you place her in your lap, staying for sessions of petting or brushing. Matilda is confident, friendly with strangers and affectionate. She has met and is fine with respectful preschoolers, mellow dogs, and enjoys the company of kittens. Matilda face rubs, ankle rubs, greets you at the door, watches for you at the window, kneads you and plays with toys. This sweetie would like to be your new companion.

Jersey, born Aug. 25, 2015 is a black and white male domestic shorthair male who is playful, nice and shy. It takes a while to gain his trust, but when you do, he is very affectionate! He likes to play with the cat wand, is good with older kids, gets along with most cats, and tolerates dogs. He’s currently on meds for an eye infection, and also requires a prescription diet and other meds which will be required long term (and weekly brushing). He’s had a complete wellness exam, is neutered, microchipped, tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV, and is updated on vaccinations. His adoption fee is $175, which includes a free wellness exam within seven days of adoption. Although Jersey requires a little extra care, he’s well worth the effort!
