There’s not a dry eye in Berlin Connecticut today. The beloved “Jai-alai Cat” at Matt’s Court, who has “more court time than anybody”, has passed away.
A fixture of Matt’s amateur jai-alai court, the cat had about 15-20 names over the years.
“Our place will never be the same without him”, Matt’s cousin Carlo remarked. “Many great memories from him”. I’m sure the hundreds of players that have played there over the years will concur.
The cat was given to Matt in 2010 when he opened the jai-alai facility, and it had a great home for over 12 years.
Two other cats still reside at the complex, but they too, have lost a close friend.
