Cat | Male | Age: 13 | Domestic Longhair Orange Tabby | Spayed/Neutered | Up-to-date on vaccinations

Butter is a charming and handsome cat; a real tail chaser! He was named after the stick of butter that he ate when he was a kitten. He's an easily entertained cat that prefers the company of humans, though he gets along great with other cats, and dogs too. Loves to play with grocery bags and cardboard boxes. Favorite toy is catnip pillows. Enjoys sun bathing. Huge cuddler and very affectionate. Will nuzzle your neck while you sleep, but has a habit of taking up your whole pillow by the end of the night.

Other Animals
He grew up with two other cats, Benny and Waffles and a single dog, Daphne.

Medical History
Butter is declawed, neutered and up to date on his vaccines. He just had a veterinary appointment on May 19th. He had full blood work done and everything came back with a clean bill of health. Has had a history of feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD). Had multiple urinary blockages when he was younger, but had a Perineal Urethrostomy performed 7/23/14 to prevent further blocks. Surgery appears to have been effective. No further blockages have been noted following the surgery, but he remains on the Urinary S/O diet as a preventative measure.

Ideal Home
Butter would make an ideal home for anyone. He would be great with either an active home or a quiet one. He is indifferent to other cats and dogs, but gets along great with them. He really prefers human interaction.

Physical Description
Domestic Longhair Orange Tabby with a gentleman's mustache and a white frilly bib.

Other Information
My friend passed away unexpectedly and left behind Butter, his two cat brothers and a dog. I am helping the surviving family rehome him and the others. Butter is on a prescription diet called Urinary S/O. The cost of a 20lb bag is ~$70, but he only gets a 1/4 cup a day. A single bag should last you about 5 months. There is no adoption fee for Butter. All interested parties must fill out an application and are subject to a standard background check.
