Buttons: Still waiting for a Foster or a Home...She has not had even 1 inquiry...

Buttons has been through a lot in her short life. We were alerted that Buttons was being abandoned by her owner, an owner that had Buttons since she was a kitten.

Buttons owner started leaving her alone for days at a time. Buttons acted out, and her owner thrust her outside and wouldn't let her back in. If Buttons came to the door, her owner would spray her in the face with a water bottle.

Poor Buttons was abandoned and neglected by the one person who was supposed to love her.

A concerned neighbor called us, after witnessing how sweet Buttons was being treated and hearing that the owner was calling shelters requesting they pick her up.

When we took Buttons in, she was covered in fleas and ticks. She hadn't been to the vet since she was a kitten, and was way past due on her vaccinations and wellness checks. We took her to the vet and she had a full work up. Thankfully, Buttons is healthy!

Buttons was very stressed, and needed a safe place to decompress. She had been an only kitty her entire life, and was never socialized.

Initially, a foster stepped up to hold Buttons temporarily. The foster had other cats and Buttons was scared and aggressive with them. The foster had to keep Buttons in a large crate. We didn't think this would be an ideal situation, and hoped another foster would be able to take Buttons.

The foster tried to keep Buttons out of the crate, but she was having trouble getting along with the other cats. Soon, she will be moved to the fosters office, so she can have her own space, but being alone in a room is not the kind of life Buttons deserves.

Buttons enjoys to be pet and loves to play. She does not like to be touched on her lower back or tail, and so, we recommend her in a home with teens and up.

Buttons is located in Holtsvillle, NY and is between 3 and 4 years old.
