Meet BIG BOI BUTTER!!
Butter came into our shelter after his owners could no longer care for him. He is a bit nervous around strangers but warms up after a few days. Butter loves to rub on you, lay beside you, and have treats with you. However, he appreciates when you keep your hands to yourself, as he’s not comfortable with being pet yet. Butter is very playful and loves chasing balls and wand toys.
Butter will need a pawrent who can commit to helping him lose a few pounds with proper diet and activity. He is currently on a special diet to help with his weight loss and urine crystals. Butter’s obesity affects his mobility, so he has trouble grooming himself and will need regular grooming until he gets to a healthy size.
Butter has also shown not to be a big fan of other cats, so he would do best as the only cat in the home.
Do you think you could be Butter’s person? Here are some ways to find out:
1.) Visit our Centre to meet this pet during adoption viewings Friday to Tuesday noon to 3pm, learn more about their ideal match, and apply to adopt in person; or
2.) Submit an online application adopt.spca.bc.ca and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions an online applicant would have to be available to come in for a meet within 24 hrs.
