Facts about Bud

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Bud lost his home 3 ½ years ago and has had a hard time finding a new one. He is diabetic, shy and a senior; three characteristics that can prevent a cat from finding a home. Hopefully that special someone will read about him and want to give him the loving home he deserves.

Bud is shy around people, so it will take a very patient adopter who is willing to work with him and let him come around at his own pace. He does, however, love other cats; or should we say they love him? He is quite the Casanova at the shelter and always has a female kitty in love with him. Last year it was Hannah. Hannah followed Bud everywhere he went, and we would often see her lying on his back, giving him a massage! Hannah was adopted and now Bud’s new girlfriend is Bellona. She follows him everywhere and is always rubbing against him. Bud is rarely out of her sight. When he had to stay in a special needs room for a couple of months, she would sit outside his door, staring at him. They really are a sweet couple.

Bud is diabetic and requires insulin shots twice a day. Because he is diabetic, he is in our HALO program. To read more about the program, please click on the HALO tab.
Bud is overlooked on adoption days, but with some time and patience, he would settle nicely into a new home. He just needs a chance. Since he feels more comfortable around other cats, he is required to be adopted into a home with other kitties. We think he would adjust more quickly if he had Bellona with him!

Bud is also in our Kitty Keeper program and sends out quarterly updates on how things are going at the shelter. To read more about our Kitty Keeper program, click on our donate tab.
So if you are looking for a sweet shy guy to join your family, please consider Bud. Or maybe consider being his Kitty Keeper or making a donation towards our HALO program!
