Butch’s Story

History:  Butch was surrendered to a facility who was going to euthanize him because he is FIV+  One of our supporters saw him and offered to foster him to save his life.

About:  Butch is a friendly, outgoing guy.  He loves people and will come up to them and meow until he gets their attention.  His foster home said the minute they opened his carrier the first day they brought him home he came right out and went up to them and jumped into their laps.  Butch may not have had the easiest life, the vet thinks he has a bb lodged in his chin, but because it isn’t causing any harm we feel its best to leave it.  Butch spends his day looking for a lap to sit in or a person to hang with.  His foster home has an energetic 18 month old child who he is very comfortable with, and has figured out how to get out of the way when the child comes in hot! 🙂  Butch is being fostered with two other cats who don’t always appreciate him.  We think he would be fine in a home with other cats who won’t be disappointed if he doesn’t want to interact with them.  Butch doesn’t mind the other cats, but he’s more of a person’s cat, than a cat’s cat.  If you’re looking for a bold and outgoing guy Butch is a great cat for you to meet!  His foster home describes him as:  Sweet, Funny, Outgoing, Cuddly, and Affectionate. Butch has the look of a Maine Coon, but he’s not as large. FIV+
