CAT OF THE WEEK: Matthew (FCID# 12/07/2020 – 20)
Cat of the Week!!! 🐾🐾🐾🐾
Matthew (FCID# 12/07/2020 – 20)
Calling all experienced cat owners looking for a senior guy to cuddle on the couch with and watch the evening news… Matthew is perfect for you!
Matthew was found on the streets of Philadelphia in pretty poor shape. He came to Forgotten Cats and was given the love, care and medical attention he needed, and now he is ready for his forever home!
He spent some time at the Pet Smart adoption center, but became pretty sad there so he was moved to a foster family. He craves attention from people and loves pats on his head. He likes to be in the middle of the goings on with other cats and his humans., but he is his own man, and prefers if you play by his rules. When Matthew is nervous or has had enough, he will sometimes hiss and swat. We are finding that this is getting better the more comfortable he feels. The more we get to know (and love ) him, we see that he has some food insecurity issues.
This means that due to a lack of food when he was on the streets, he can become stressed that he won’t have enough food. This is when we see him hiss. We find that feeding him independently is the best option, away from our other pets. He has been interacting with children ages 11 and 12 while in foster care, and he gets along with other felines with no problem. He had to have all his teeth extracted causing his little bubblegum pink tongue to hang out of his mouth.
Matthew loves his wet food and will meow and try to direct his human to the food bowl when it is mealtime. Matthew would love a safe and calm environment to call his forever home. Every staff member and volunteer at Forgotten Cats is rooting for this guy to have someone fall in love with him and give him a soft place to rest his head throughout his senior years. Will you open your heart and welcome Matthew into your home?
