New Jersey Aid for Animals board member Kelly Matthews, a Gloucester Township resident, submitted the following to Patch:
Tilt is still with us looking for his person. He loves people and and would surely love to come home with you. Cats are oftentimes overlooked because people already have one. We like to tell people when you have one, it's just as easy to have two. Leaving a cat alone in a house while you have to work a full-time job can be a very boring life for a cat. If you are unable to provide the stimulation for the cat, why not give him or her a friend to do so? We vote for Tilt of course!
We found Tilt during a hoarder house case. He has a tilt to his head and that's how he got his name—MaTilta. This is because he had a large polyp in his sinus cavity that was never treated or removed. Tilt suffered for years and had an upper respiratory infection when we found him. He is completely healthy now and has no issues due to his time in the house. Please don't allow his very interesting backstory deter you from giving him a chance. Think of it more as a kitty's badge of honor.
As tiny as he is, we believe him to be almost 3 years old! One of our volunteers thought he was a kitten! Tilt is such a loving boy. You can see him curled in the basket with Sparky, another one of our survivors, in one of his photos. Litter box trained and ready to go home, he will make a perfect lap cat for any home. Please give him the loving home he deserves! Fill out an adoption application here and we will contact you if MaTilta is a good fit for your home.
