A mysterious beauty.Those gorgeous green eyes really stand out against Matrix's white fur. But, for the longest time Matrix, himself, tended to fade into the rafters. We completely understood why ? this fellow is a survivor of the Great Kitty Rescue in Pahrump, Nevada, where the cats were horrible thirsty, hungry, hot and neglected. His eyes used to tell us, " I'm sorry. I'm just not sure whether you are a friend or foe, so I'll stay up here.? Then a funny thing happened. It was like a magical wand had been waved. It kind of was ? it was the " shy cat wand,? which allows people to safely caress painfully shy cats, like Matrix. The light bulb went off, and now his eyes are saying, " Hey, that's not so bad after all!? That was a huge leap for this shy guy but he is reversing back and we think he'll really blossom if a patient person is willing to help him (a few fun toys and some catnip will certainly help, too!). It'd be great for him to live with other cats, so he can continue seeing how much fun it can be to be friends with people. Plus he really loves being part of a cat family. Matrix is one of those rare pets who has so much potential if the right person is willing to help him. Could that person be you?
