BRANDON -- Canada's most famous cat is looking to be adopted -- to an "inside-only home."
Butterscotch -- who made national headlines during a weeks-long ordeal with what was thought to be a bird feeder on his head -- is looking for an adoptive home. A group of citizens conducted nightly patrols, trying to humanely trap the cat, which they feared couldn't eat with its head encased in plastic casing.
Butterscotch is currently in the hands of pet rescue organization Funds For Furry Friends. They helped co-ordinate the cat's corralling, despite one ornery neighbour.
The suspected bird feeder turned out to be a child's bug catcher. After his capture, Butterscotch spent some time at the pound, waiting to be claimed, but no one came forward.
Butterscotch didn't settle in to his rescue home right away, according to Fund For Furry Friends, but they say with a little time and patience, he turned into a normal, lovable cat.
It turns out Butterscotch likes to cuddle and get pats and scratches under his chin. He likes playing with toys, too.
Funds For Furry Friends is looking for a quieter household to adopt Butterscotch, and they say it must be an indoor-only environment.
They say that there's a $90 fee for adoption, which partially covers some of the fees they've incurred, such as de-worming and vaccinations. Butterscotch has also been neutered.
For more information on the adoption process, see the Fund For Furry Friends website at FundsFurFriends.com.
They currently have more than 20 rescued cats available for adoption and more than 40 dogs.
