Believe it or not, Matt is the brother of grey & white Freckles (miss January 2014, for those of you who have a copy of the RAPS sanctuary calendar).

Matt is a nice cat, but tends to be shy like his sister. When I met him last week, he was hanging out in the back courtyard behind the singlewide. He wasn't too sure about meeting me at first though, and had to be coaxed into sticking around.

After some reassurance from Leslie, Matt was willing to hang out long enough for me to get a few portrait shots. For those who'd like to get to know him, I hear he loves treats and is more likely to allow approaches for cuddles when there are some treats in it for him.

  1. Well it looks like my attempts to bribe him are paying off. When he's sleeping in the newcomers he does the "don't touch me dance" But then succumbs to scratches and pets with a lionly like purr!
