Buttercup is considered a Special Needs kitty because she has a condition called "Stomatitis." (It's also known as gingivitis). This is when the cat's body causes an autoimmune response to tarter on it's teeth. Her case has been treated by her local Vet and all but 2 of her canine teeth have been removed, as she had a very bad case. That and some medications have resolved 85% of her stomatitis, and we hope to have it completely cleared before long. Her Vet also picked up a faint heart murmur and we're having that checked out by a Vet cardiologist shortly.
Buttercup also tends to have a sensitivity to grains, so she is fed wet food with no grains (which helps keep her fur so velvety and soft). She loves dry food, but some of them cause stomach aches for her. Keeping her on her current diet will keep her healthy and happy. She can eat Blue Buffalo Freedom Chicken, or Best Feline Friends Chicken flavors & lower fat (sold at stores like The PawStand in Norcross.
Buttercup is negative for FIV/FeLV, up-to-date on shots, spayed and microchipped. Adoption fee is $90.
If you are considering two cats, Buttercup's daughter, Romper, is also available and the two of them get along very well. (See Romper's profile here on PetFinder). Adopting both Buttercup and Romper can be done for a fee of $100.
Planned PEThood of GA adoption opportunities are held at the Johns Creek PetSmart (corner of Medlock Bridge and McGinnis Ferry Roads) on Saturdays from 11am to 4pm.
Additionally, Planned PEThood has adoptions at the Mall of Georgia Petco (Buford Drive in Buford) and at the Lawrenceville Petsmart (Lawrenceville Suwanee Road at HWY 120 in Lawrenceville).
Because Buttercup gets stressed at adoption events and because her daughter Romper is very shy, please consider asking to see these kitties at their foster's home instead of at adoption events.
