Mattie has turned out to be a really super kitty. She's funny-looking and her personal hygiene occasionally leaves something to be desired, and she has a chronic sneezing problem, but she is the most resilient happy creature I've ever seen. She's the ultimate cat of a cat in some ways. She wants what she wants when she wants it. And she wants it her way. In other ways, she's more like a dog. You take her to the vet, and all she wants to do is get down and explore the exam room! She follows my husband around like a puppy. I'm a little afraid those two are going to elope on me, I've never seen such a love affair before! Wherever he is, she is. He sits on the couch and she wraps her front paws around his leg and goes to sleep. I swear she smiles.

She's also learned not to hunt the birds. She's still interested, but she seems to have figured out they are part of the family, not toys. I'm never going to trust ANY of the cats unsupervised with birds out and about, but I'm no longer particularly worried she'll go after them.

In short, she's worked out well!
