Butters.

I have two cats, Roswell, the bald cat that looks like Gollum from Lord of the Rings, and Butters.  While Roswell is a pure bred Sphynx cat, Butters is a bruiser of a tabby cat that we rescued as a kitten off the street in Peterborough.


He's a big cat, more than double Roswell's seven pounds.  But despite their obvious differences,  he and Roswell are best buds, with the latter often snuggling up to him like a furry, heating pad.


As for Butters' friendly nature -- the neighbour's cat would beg to disagree.  Butters has been known wander over the back fence to beat him up in his own back yard.


For a big cat, it's amazing the tight spots that Butters squeezes himself into. Unfortunately there was a plant already in the pot.


Though he is sweet and gentle, Butters does not like to be picked up and held.  Our suspicion is that as a tiny kitten living on the street he'd had his share of being grabbed, picked up and subsequently dropped by children.

But give him a box, and he's in kitty heaven.


THE END !

  2. Butters is a big boy. He would make close to three of my Sadie dog. It is too bad that he doesn't like to be held. Looking at his pictures, I would like to cuddle him, and Roswell too. I like the last picture. What an amazing position. Balancing on the backbone...ouch.

    1. If I'm lying on the bed Bonnie, he'll let me drape an arm over him. But if I pick him up he wiggles and pushes away. I wish I could cuddle him too but he's definitely NOT a lap-cat.

    2. She was thinking it would make friends laugh, or smile, or get some exercise bending over ...

  5. I really enjoy reading about Butters the cat that you rescued from the street. He is a beauty and so is Roswell. Cats are like dogs- they all have a personality. We just have to let their true nature shine through.

  6. Butters a beautiful fellow (and I like his name)

    Great pictures - especially the one of the two cats sleeping together. First time I've ever seen cats cuddling.

    1. Rosie, my daughter named him after a character in South Park.

      Roswell is quite the cuddler. They are such a pair !
