Matilda was adopted on December 19, 2020!
Introducing Matilda Wormwood! Matlida and her large family (momma and her SEVEN kittens – Momma Babe, Amelia Bedelia, Ramona Quimby (adopted), Curious George, Paddington Bear, Madeline, and Corduroy (adopted)) – were rescued from Devore Shelter in San Bernardino at the end of June when she and her siblings were barely 8 weeks old.
The whole family was named for classic Children’s Storybook characters and, just like the little girl in the story, Matilda showed her foster mom a little bit of her magic … her glossy coat of black fur slowly changed to a smoky fever coat, and then back to black over time!
After a few days of decompressing from being in the shelter, everyone settled into their foster home and easily took to their foster mom, who helped them all grow big and strong!
Matilda is now a beautiful, fluffy panther girl, with a few stray hairs of white on her tail.
She can be slower to warm up to new people, and can enjoy time to herself, but she also likes to play with her siblings and momma or the younger foster kittens in her foster home, and welcomes a good back scratch or belly rub from her favorite human!
If she’s not curled up on her own, recharging from playing hard and chasing her toys or sibling around, she’s usually in a cuddle puddle with her brothers and sisters and momma! It’s one extreme or the other for Matilda!
Because she’s used to having many friends around, she must be adopted with her momma or one of her siblings, or into a home with another kitty that can be her friend. She tends to steer clear of the dog in her foster home, but doesn’t mind her as long as she’s in a calm and respectful mood.
Matilda is current on her vaccines and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. She has also been spayed and microchipped! If you’d like to write some magic with this fluffy kitty into your story, apply to adopt this sweet girl today!
