Meet Mattie!
Mattie has survived it all!  Broken back, beebee gun shot, and a blood clot - those are the things we know of. 
He came in as a stray-dragging his back leg; we thought he was hit by a car at first but after some testing we discovered he had a bloodclot.  Now on heart meds, his back leg is all healed.  He is ready for his forever home!  Mattie is 11 years old and would like a quiet home with no dogs, other cats or small children.  He is very very sweet and quick to purr once he gets to know you.  A pretty low-key guy, he likes to eat and look out the window.   Would be a great companion for someone looking for company and a low-maintenance cat!  Mattie also has heart disease and would need daily medication. 
Mattie is also part of our Take A Chance On Me Program. This means We would waive his adoption fee for the right home for. You must have a reliable and consistent vet reference. Check out our website ( for more details.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application online at . Meet and greets are with an approved application by appointment only.
As always, cats that are ready to be adopted are spayed/neutered, have age appropriate shots, are micro-chipped, dewormed/deflead, and FEL/FIV tested.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
