In the water, everything is fun and relaxing. Out of the pool, things can be a little bit scarier. Willet has come out of his shell at Best Friends, and he's been a star student in wallflower classes. He trusts new people more and more after being rescued from an overcrowded situation with too many other animals.

Born in 2006, Willet is healthy, and great with other dogs. He might be better in a home with older children, just because of his shyness. People who get to know the real Willet (and it doesn't take long to win his heart) say he's a fun pal to have around. He'd really love to show you that side of him.

Those gorgeous green eyes really stand out against Matrix's white fur. For the longest time, Matrix 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 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 and he began to come down for caresses and time with people. 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, 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 is to be friends with people. Plus, he really loves being part of a cat family.
