Matoo the cat
A tabby cat wandered into a neighborhood in Montreal, scrounging around for food and shelter.
A kind-hearted neighbor, Yvon, came across the newcomer and later found out that the cat didn’t have a home. When he noticed that the tabby started losing weight, he wanted to help him.
He brought a bowl of food and offered it to the stray and hoped that he would accept the gesture.

The tabby approached him cautiously at first, but as soon as he smelled the food, he voraciously scarfed it down.
He warmed up to his human friend and became comfortable around him. Soon, he would wait for Yvon every day to show up with his favorite pate.
He accepted food from his rescuer
After getting his tummy filled to the brim, the cat would roll around on the ground, showing off his full belly. He began to allow Yvon to pet him, as if he was ready to be a pampered indoor cat.
Yvon scooped him up and took him inside. He helped to get the cat checked out by a vet and neutered.
“The cat was so sweet that he went along with everything. He needed a lot of dental work and a forever home, so we were contacted for help,” Celine Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montreal shared.
“We took the cat into our care and named him Matoo. His teeth and gums were in such terrible shape that all of his teeth had to be removed.”
