Many people know I love the red (others say “orange”) Maine Coon mixes. They are the sweetest cats and this boy is no exception. He was all alone in a stainless steel shelter cage, underweight, and on the Needs Rescue list. Of course, I wanted to go get him right away. And did. Did you notice his amazing fluffy ear hair? And magnificent whiskers? He will grow into a striking, big boy.
Butterfield was so glad to be with us and cuddled. Kittens don’t do well all alone and need a lot of touch and animal warmth. We were happy to carry him about as he snuggled contentedly into our hands. He has flourished in the last three weeks. He went on antibiotics and that helped pop him through a cold to the happy playful kitten he now is. He has caught up on his weight. I think he has a particularly strong connection to humans because they came into his lonely life and loved him.
Butterfield is cat friendly and human friendly. New things startle him sometimes and make him take a step back. Momentarily. His confidence will grow as he matures more. He is still a little guy. He is a play monster and is happily learning about his world and all his toys in it after his fairly boring beginning.
He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, and all ready to go to his new home. A home with another kitten to play with would be my first choice for him. His roommate is Princess Lola, a black and white Maine Coon cutie, so that may be a good choice for him. (She will be posted soon.) Or perhaps another kitten or young cat.
He eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
Butterfield’s foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
Contact Harriet at (831) 336-2983 or email@example.com if you have questions, or send an Adoption Application. If you are unable to reach Harriet by phone or email, email us at Info@purebredsplus.org.
NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interest!
