About Missy Buttercup
Adopted by Kathryn & Scott
Born ~4/9/17, F, Flame-Point Siamese Mix
Bonded with BoJangles
October update: Little Missy jumps on the bed to say good morning or good evening, chirps when I walk by, arrives talking for her pettings, and lets me know when it is time for wet food! She usually sleeps in whatever room I’m in and cracks me up with her little solemn face watching me get out of the shower. Missy and Bo play together, ambush each other, often sleep together, and deal well with the adult cats in the household, playing with the youngest and steering clear of the older ones.
Foster brother Bo continues to be a delightful assistant. I get help with tying and untying my shoes, sweeping the floor, making the bed, cleaning cat boxes, typing, and filling the water jugs! In fact, he has a fascination with water, jumping into the shower as soon as I step out and waiting for the faucet to turn on so he can take his turn drinking with the other cats. He also keeps some of his toys in the cats’ water dish when he’s not dragging one to me so I can throw it. He does make me laugh. Some lucky household will get two lovely, lively youngsters!
Oh, I so love the flame point Siamese! These kittens are inevitably affectionate, funny, playful, and curious, and Missy Buttercup is one of the best! Most moving toys are fair game, but Missy is especially attached to the kitty tease fishing line. If things aren’t moving, well, that’s not a problem, either. Missy can make things move, jumping on them and tugging!
She and Bo, a kitten from another litter, play every morning and evening. They really enjoy playing on their foster mom’s bed while she reads in the evening with Missy jumping on Bo when he burrows under the covers. They eat together and chase each other, and sometimes, they sleep piled up if the night is cold. They are both becoming personal assistants!
Missy Buttercup will come to you spayed, dewormed, microchipped, and vaccinated.
Missy and Bo are fostered in Davis, CA.
NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interest!
