Buttercup is a handsome neutered 3 year old male orange and white Tabby Domestic Shorthair cat.

This loving cat is living in a parking lot of a local store.  He is extremely loving and sweet.  Everyone there pets him all day long.  The person who had him neutered and is trying to find him a home brings him to her home at night to protect him, but cannot keep him herself. Buttercup is a FIV Positive cat.  Many FIV+ cats like Buttercup can live a full productive life, however it is something he can pass to other cats through deep bite wounds. Since we don’t know how he is with other cats, caution and constant supervision initially should be taken if he is to live with other cats that are not FIV+.  This condition also means that he must live indoors ONLY.  FIV cannot be contracted to other types of animals or humans. Buttercup is up to date on his rabies vaccination. He is very happy indoors and does not spray or tear up.  He is litter box trained. With his mellow personality, he would really sit on your lap all day if he could. Please consider this handsome lovebug for your forever buddy!
