Buttons first appeared in a small community park in December. He was frequenting a
home on the next street quite often for food and was observed running under the trailers.
A volunteer who also lives in the community was notified and started to watch for him
around her home. It wasn’t long before he appeared on her camera coming late at night
for food, water, and shelter in one of her cat houses. He arrived at random times of the
night and during two winter snow and ice storms. She started to monitor the times he was
coming so she could set a humane trap before or after the other critters (skunk and possums) . When it was set Buttons went in and out four times and the trap did not trip. This
was an emotional roller coaster for her, and with another storm coming she set the trap the
next day but earlier. Within an hour the trap was shut and inside was little Button looking
at her with big eyes. Hence the name Button for this big beautiful eyes.
Button is quite the chill boy. He enjoys head scratches and massages. He gets along with
the other cats at the sanctuary and he can always find a cubby somewhere to curled up
and have a nice nap. He is still learning what toys are, watching the other cats to see how
it is done, what the wand toy is for and where the illusive red dot disappears to. He is
happy to receive a bedtime treat. Button is happy to be safely indoors now where he
doesn’t have to search for food or find a spot to sleep that is dry and hopefully warm. The
indoor life suits him well. Buttons is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that
will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
