Looking for an affectionate, handsome, toothless cat to call your BFF? Burton’s your man! He’s estimated to be around 8 years old, but he’s super playful and spry. He was found as a stray and brought to Philly's animal control shelter. Burton had some very infected teeth but he’s doing great now that all his rotting chompers were removed. Now that he's medically cleared, Burton is ready to find the retirement home of his dreams!

Some of Burton’s favorite activities include eating all the wet food, gumming chins and noses, being the most affectionate fella ever, getting brushed, chasing the red dot, and pouncing on wand toys. Besides his award-winning personality, we think that the most endearing thing about Burton is his underbite and prominent chin! He can be grumbly and hissy with the other kitties in his foster home, but he isn’t aggressive; he hasn’t been around any dogs to our knowledge. Once his teeth were removed, he got a clean bill of health from our vet. Burton is the ultimate Velcro lap cat. He adores being with humans and doesn’t grasp the concept of personal space (which we find completely endearing). He’s a happy boy, making biscuits on you, on soft blankets, and even in the air when he’s really excited. Burton is a fantastic kitty looking for his perfect forever home. He’s got many great years ahead of him, and he can’t wait to spend them with you!

Burton is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love! He's neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He's also FIV/FeLV negative. Interested in adopting him?Visit to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at!
