Matias's Story

Would you like your very own snuggle buddy to greet you every time you walk through the door? Do you have a lap to share with a friendly kitty? If you answered yes, Matias is the perfect kitty cat for you! This sweet boy has a lot of love to give and needs someone to share it with! All Matias wants from our volunteers is pats on the head, chin rubs, and a lap to climb onto! His cute little meow will melt your heart and in seconds you’ll become his very best friend! Matias is FIV+, which means he will need to be in a home without other cats or with those who are also FIV+.  This cutie doesn't let any of this stop him!  He has the most positive outlook on life and is so loving that he deserves nothing but the best!  Matias is a young boy who is as sweet as can be and enjoys spending time with his humans. He’s mild mannered and absolutely loves affection. His favorite thing to do at the shelter (besides being petted nonstop) is to look out his window at all the people walking by, hoping one of them will swoop him up and take him home!

Does your home have room for a sweet young boy like Matias? He’d love an adopter who will show him affection and cuddle with him 24/7! He seems to like toys, but what he really wants are some playful head scratches! And trust us when we tell you that you won’t want to stop petting him because his fur is so soft! We’re sure once you gaze into this gentle boy’s eyes, you’ll fall in love with him, so why not meet him in person and see what he’s all about? Matias is at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center and would surely love a visit from you. Stop by and see for yourself how sweet Matias is. He will love the attention, and you will love him!
