Arrival Story:
Matt was surrendered to the shelter by his owners when they moved.

I had a family for ten years, but when they moved they decided I couldn't come with them. It's a little bit confusing since I am SUCH a good boy and I really love people. I am a big, handsome guy (at least everyone says so!) with excellent manners. Whenever I see anyone walk by my cage I immediately start purring very loudly and can't stop - I get so excited that they might let me out and pet me! I am very much a people cat, I think people are wonderful and can think of nothing better than sitting with them, getting petted by them, and just being near them. I know that if you adopt me, I will be the most loyal friend you have ever had and will be sure to purr for you every single day. While I also like to explore, I would much rather be wherever you are. People here say that if I am patient I will find a very special family. I think I'd be happy in any family as long as I could be the only cat, other cats stress me out a little bit. I have this thing called FIV, but as long as you take good care of me and keep me inside I should have a long, happy life with you. If you are interested in fostering or adopting me, you can stop by the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA, call them, or email the biographer lady at kellbell1919 at
