Caturday: Buster

This handsome man is Buster out at Best Friends in Utah.

Breed: Domestic short hair
Gender: Male
Age: Mature
Size: Large

When he sees you coming, Buster will meet you half way, all the way, any way you want --- if you'll agree to spend some time talking to him and petting him. It doesn't matter what you talk about as long as you're talking and petting at the same time. Life is good when people are around!

Buster has certainly had his share of ups and downs. A woman found him as a stray, lounging outside her house. When she took him to the vet, she learned he was FIV positive. Normally, this would be no big deal, but Buster occasionally fought with her other cats. And if things got too rough, well, there was the possibility that Buster could infect the other cats if he broke through their skin.

So Buster lived outside of the woman's house in a feral cat colony. He started getting kind of weak, so the woman thought he'd be better off at Best Friends.

And he is! He's feeling great again, playing with his kitty friends and getting in some good loving with people when they come around. So life is on the upswing again for Buster.

But you know what would make his life totally over-the-top great? A forever home with loving people and maybe other loving cats, too.

Enjoy your Caturday, folks! Let's hope there are lots of adoptions in this new year ... hopefully one for Buster too :)
