Facts about Big Foot (special needs)

  • Breed: Russian Blue
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: AG
  • Hair: Short
My name is Big Foot, and I am an affectionate, gorgeous Russian Blue/ silver DSH mix boy who was born in March 2015. I have the Russian Blue's signature sleek steely-gray coat, lithe body, beautiful green eyes, and cobra-shaped face with a perpetual smile. I am a complete Velcro cat and will cuddle with you the minute you sit down. My foster meowmy says that she'd be hard-pressed to find a sweeter, more loving kitty than I am. I love being with my humans, but I am also good with other cats as well as dogs.
We Russian Blue mixes are known to be lovable, loyal, gentle, quiet, well-behaved, super intelligent, and clean. Now how can you beat that? My long legs and tail as well as my lean body give me an exquisite, stately, elegant aura. To find out more about Russian Blue mixes, please watch the attached 3-minute You Tube video that appeared on Animal Planet or google 'Cats 101 Russian Blue.'
Life has not always been as idyllic as it is now in my foster home. I had a bit of a rough start in life since my foster meowmy had to bail me out of the city kill shelter. Even after that, I struggled with a strange swelling of my foot that is responsible for my strange moniker, Big Foot. The vet thought that I was bitten by something but couldn't figure out what.
I guess you're wondering why I am a special needs kitty? Well, it seems that being a typical Russian Blue mix, I get stressed out with any environmental change and a chronic upper respiratory infection rears its ugly head every time I try to find a new home. This manifests itself with nasal congestion and discharge that can only be helped by the vet's giving me nasal flushes. I need someone who will be patient with me, allow me to settle in at my new home, and if I get congested, take me to the vet for a nasal flush, which is not particularly expensive. It's not much to ask, but some people just are not interested in my being so much trouble getting settled in.
However, if you want the sweetest cat ever, you should come to meet me! Foser meowmy says that I am definitely worth it! I'm sure that I will mesmerize you with my gorgeous emerald-green eyes as well as my gentle disposition and that you will take me home with you!

About Buster's Friends

About Our Rescue Group...

Buster’s Friends, Inc. is a rescue group and non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to helping homeless and abandoned adult dogs and cats as well as puppies and kittens find permanent homes through our network of foster homes. We are not a shelter or facility, and all animals in our program are fostered by individuals who keep the animal in their residence until it is adopted. This foster care gives them specialized care in a nurturing home environment.
Buster’s Friends was created in memory of Jennifer Fields, who spent countless hours rescuing and fostering hundreds of Houston’s homeless animals prior to losing her battle to cancer in May 2009. As a tribute to Jennifer and her dedication, we named the group after her beloved dog Buster, who made the journey to the Rainbow Bridge in August 2008.
