Facts about Butterscotch

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tan Or Fawn Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10180857
  • Hair: Short

Butterscotch is a beautiful 1 year old female butterscotch buff and white tabby Domestic Shorthair cat.

She is currently in foster care, and available for adoption now. Butterscotch was a stray cat before she had her kittens, and had her first interaction with people when she received help with those kittens, who are socialized and finding their forever homes now! Because Butterscotch had never been around people before, she is very, very shy. If she is to be the special lady in someone's life, she should be in a very calm, quiet household as the only animal, and with someone who has a lot of patience and love to give. She has developed a relationship with her foster mom, so she rubs against her legs, and enjoys being petted by her, but has had little exposure to other people yet. She enjoys playing with feather wands and other toys. She has a lot of love to give as a single house cat or barn cat. She is also micro-chipped, spayed, and current on all vaccinations.

About Cat's Cradle of the Shenandoah Valley

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 1998, Cat’s Cradle seeks to end euthanasia of healthy adoptable cats and dogs in Shenandoah Valley through aggressive spay/neuter of owned animals and TNR (trap/neuter/release) of feral cats.

We also have a network of foster parents and an active adoption program for cats. In 2009 we opened an adoption center in Harrisonburg. We do not euthanize for space.

Please visit our website at: for more information.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We show our cats at PetSmart in Springfield, VA on most 1st and 3rd Saturdays, at the PetSmart in Harrisonburg, VA on some Saturdays and some Sunday afternoons, and at the Petsmart in Waynesboro on Saturdays. We also show cats at our adoption center at 124 S Main St. in Harrisonburg 11-6 M-F, and 11-5 Sat and 11-4 Sunday.

Please visit our website: for other adoption events and hours for showings or call the adoption center at 540-433-1135.

Our Adoption Process...

Please see our website: for a copy of our adoption application and adoption contract. Adoption fees vary, but generally run around $135.

All our cats are spayed or neutered before adoption, and fully vetted. We have an adoption center in Harrisonburg, but we also make extensive use of foster homes until adoption.

We generally prefer indoor only homes, and our contract specifies that the cat(s) will not be de-clawed.

We have some cats that cannot be adopted into an indoor situation. For these, we seek safe barn or out-building locations.
