Paige “Princess Diva” Matthis

Date of Pet Passing – 03/14/2022
– Lisa Matthis


Our sweet pea Paige “Princess Diva” Matthis crossed the rainbow bridge on 3/14/2022 at 5:45 pm in her human Lisa’s arms after a short yet courageous battle with abdominal lymphoma, just like her late brother who crossed 2 years and 5 days before her. A few weeks shy of her 12th birthday, she was adopted along with her late brother Perry in 2010 by the Matthis family. She enjoyed watching the bird videos on YouTube while Lisa worked at her desk. Another favorite activity was climbing the sisal rope pole of her 8-foot-tall cat condo to get to the top to survey her kingdom and subjects. She always wanted a share of your chicken, no matter what kind and was known for being at the side of anyone who was sick or recovering as our little “nurse” and was on standby if a “cat” scan was needed to get you back to health. She was preceded in death by her twin brother Perry, and cousins Winston, Blackie and Goldie. She leaves behind her human family and a cousin cat, Jasper the tripawd. She will be missed but is no longer in pain. Fly high sweet pea and make sure to tell Perry, Winston and the other, we love and miss them. We’ll see you at the bridge somewhere over the rainbow. Run free and enjoy the birds…..The family thanks Dr Chance Stutesman and all the staff at Village Animal Hospital, Mooresville for their compassionate and loving care in the last few months of her life.
