Matthew in the human world would be described as the strong silent type. He is a completely laid back, gentle soul who is friends with all the other foster cats. There is no drama and no aggressiveness; he’s just a patient and kind big lovebug waiting for his forever family to claim him. Matthew likes the typical cat toys and stays primarily at floor level. He does not jump or climb very often but sometimes sleeps on a horizontal surface a little higher. He accepts petting and does not mind the occasional brushing his beautiful coat needs. He has not been dog tested but should be ok with a cat friendly canine. Older respectful children should be ok too.

Mathew has a great appetite and currently eats only Purina ProPlan Sensitive Skin and Stomach. He has no issues but the foster free-feeds so that food is used because of another foster cat. His new family can easily transition him to the quality food they choose or their veterinarian recommends. He could benefit from small helpings of wet food. He is accustomed to clay litter but would probably not mind any quality litter. He really appreciates a clean, tidy box!

Origin: Matthew was born outside at a house whose owner feeds stray cats. The homeowner is responsible enough to have the cats and kittens vetted but she lives close to a busy four-lane highway. When she brought Matthew in for vetting, the clinic offered to find him a rescue so he would not have to go back outside. Maine Coon Rescue was honored to be the first they contacted, and we gladly accepted him into the fold. He had a huge gray ruff at that point that looked like the fur on a winter parka. He lost it when the weather turned warmer. Although we thought it might come back later, that has not appeared but he has a nice black ruff in its place.

Matthew will be happy with a family, couple or single person. He never gets ruffled or testy and seems to be unflappable. He greets the foster at the door for petting and would love to be someplace where he can get lots of attention and love. You won’t have any trouble showering him with what he craves if you are lucky enough to score this wonderful big boy!
