Available for Adoption

Rutland, VT

Matthew is affectionate, playful and super cute!

Matthew Nelson – Young Adult Male: November 24, 2021

“…sassy and funny and wants a human who will let him take his time to learn to be friends. Once he trusts you, he will return your love by coming to you for pats and purring up a storm.”

-Foster Mom
Matthew: November 24, 2021

Matthew likes to size things up, makes friends slowly but is first in line for pats once he gets to know you. (He is always first in line at the food bowl!)

Matthew and brother Gunnar were rescued by The Feline Connection in early April and seem to have had a tough early life. At one point we thought they were bonded, but we had to separate them, and they both do well independently. However, if adopted together they would keep each other company.

Matthew: September 6, 2021: Loves to play with his brother Gunnar.

Matthew has been neutered, microchipped, and has his age-appropriate vaccinations. He tested negative (good) for FeLV and FIV. Matthew is on prescription urinary food, which he will need on an ongoing basis.

Mathew is looking for a quiet home without small children or dogs. He needs a little support to help him learn to trust again. If you’re seeking a playful cat who will reward your patience and affection with lots of pats and purrs, please submit an adoption application below!
