This is our cat Mattie. She is so part of the family. She loves our dogs, acts as a mother to our other cats, and never wants to be away from us. She knocks on bedroom doors to come in, and cries to go out. She rolls over when my son whistles a certain tune, and comes when called. You can walk around with her hanging off your shoulder and she will clean herself as you go. If you are not careful she will jump on your back and climb on your shoulders for a piggy back ride. She is one special cat and is loved and spoiled very much.
Mattie was found on our doorstep when she was about 7 months old. She was already fixed and declawed. We saved her, since we have coyotes in our neighborhood. Last week even a mountain lion was seen a block away. Mattie has now lived with us for over 6 years.
Mattie lives in Prescott, Arizona, USA.
