Some of our cats & kittens are in rotation at Petsmart in Peru, IL (5243 IL-251, Peru, IL 61354). Come out and see them! We will have cats in the store's adoption center until Sunday, Dec. 18. In addition, there is an adoption event at the store this weekend, Dec. 12-13. Volunteers will be on hand to facilitate adoptions. This is the purr-fect opportunity to adopt a new family member for Christmas!
As you can see in the first picture, Butters got himself into a nasty fight. Because his wounds were caused by a cat fight, this poor guy had to remain in a pen for 60 days until he could be retested for FIV/FELV. We are thrilled to announce he's negative for both, and quite a character. Want to meet him?
The one thing we have noticed about our Butters, he's pretty aggressive with other cats. It seems to be males mostly, which makes sense - when he came to us he had obviously been in a lot of fights. He's also the aggressor. And his playfulness with people can pretty rough, so while he's sweet and good natured and loved children, a home with kids may not be the best fit. Sometimes he doesn't know when he's being too rough with you - his nips and bats can go to far. We're sure all of this makes him sound like a thug, but he's really not. He's as sweet as sweet can be. We just want people to know as much as they can about a cat they're thinking about as we are able to. So we think a home with no children and no other cats would really be best for him. He wants to be the only man (well, feline anyway) in your life.
All of our cats have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed, microchipped, and tested for FIV/FeLV. Our adoption fee structure is as follows:
