White with orange, short hair, female, born approx. 7/1/15, #12002
Buttermilk was left at an overcrowded and underfunded shelter in Imperial County; a lady who rescues cats out of that shelter took Buttermilk in, and when The Rescue House had an opportunity to help, Buttermilk moved over to us.
Buttermilk is a petite little doll of a kitty with a precious and easygoing personality—and lots of energy! She loves to bounce around the house in search of her favorite toys: stuffed mice. If not chasing or pouncing on her toys, Buttermilk will settle down in a comfy spot and "groom" them. She also enjoys climbing on tall cat trees and perching on their highest tiers for some good bird watching if you’ve listened to her and placed them in her favorite spot near a sunny window. After play time, Buttermilk will find a spot on the couch and curl up for a nap... soft, cozy blankets are one of her favorite nap-time luxuries, and you can see her smile as she settles in. Buttermilk likes to have complete control of her movements, and therefore prefers not to be held—however, she is a very affectionate little girl who will happily receive lots of pets and scritches. She always knows when bed time is approaching, and will relax at the foot of the bed and keep you company for most of the night. Buttermilk loves her people.
Buttermilk has done well with the other cats in her foster home and is always willing to play. She has also tolerated a medium-sized dog. She really shouldn’t live with pet birds, though—she has a tendency to mistake them for flying toys! Though Buttermilk would best like an adult-only home, she should be fine with calm older kids.
This sweet girl has a heart of gold and is eager to find her forever family. Will you be the one give Buttermilk the great life that she deserves?
