About Matisse

Matisse (orange tabby) and his brother, Picasso (grey tabby), are three-year-old American Short Hair cats who've emerged from a very difficult situation to now become the most wide-eyed and delightful pets! Their foster has taught them to walk on leashes and they LOVE it - she's generously offered to send the leashes with the cats when they are adopted. Because they are American Short Hair cats, they hardly ever shed. They like to be brushed but hardly any fur comes off! They are very tall skinny cats that look a little exotic or Egyptian because of their long legs. These brothers are super sweet, playful, and curious and they never bite or scratch. These beautiful boys belonged to an older lady who couldn't keep them because she had to have heart surgery. As it turns out, these poor kitties were kept in a pet carrier their whole lives and when we received them, they were emaciated and very underweight. Even with that difficult beginning to their lives, they are totally tame and sweet but everything is a new experience for them and they are coming out of their shells. They are so funny to watch because they haven't seen much. They freaked out to see a squirrel or even just a water pitcher! They adore attention, catnip, and toys. We would love to find an adopter who's willing to take them both as they are bonded and have counted on each other during their difficult first years. HOWEVER, we are open to them each finding super, loving homes on their own. Would you like to meet these lovely brothers who are so appreciative of love and who see the world with wonder?
