Hi all,

Bud was adopted by a man in his mid-twenties because his girlfriend (my co-worker) had a cat. Since he and his girlfriend broke up, Bud has been living in a small cage in his mother's garage with no food or water. If we don't find a home for Bud soon, she will be sent to a farm to fend for herself. My co-worker is going to take the cat to live with her and her cat, Sebastion, until a new home can be found for Bud. She can't keep her because her apartment complex does not allow pets. They tolerate the one she's got, but she's not supposed to have him and he could be removed at any time (I'm trying to get her to move).

Bud will be a year old come Valentine's day and has not been spayed or declawed and she probably needs her shots. She is extremely friendly and grew up with another cat. She is black all over and has green eyes. I will try to post a pic later today if you are interested. I'm sure Bud will understand if you want to change her name.

I would be willing to drive Bud to a forever home in Ohio, western Pennsylvania, northwestern West Virginia, or southern Michigan.

Thanks, Aonir. Elyse is going to go through her photographs today and try to find a good pic of Bud. She has two here at work, but they're not very good. It's hard to get a good picture of an all-black kitty. I'll post it tomorrow.

Thanks again!

Here's some pictures of Bud.

This is Bud as a kitten.

This is about how big she is now.

Again, this is about how big she is now. She's a very tiny cat.

I tried to talk my girlfriend into adopting her, Anissa. She said no... and unfortunately, she's probably right. (I'm the voice of reason in the relationship except when it comes to cats, lol.)

I'm going to pass the word.

Thank you, Aonir! The page looks excellent. And thank you especially for expanding the amount of real estate we can adopt her out to. Out of curiosity, how many animals have been adopted off your site?

Thanks for trying, Padunk. I'm serious when I say that I'll drive Bud to a new home, so long as it's not more than a day's drive away. Thank you for passing along her information.

i don't suppose you could drive her to minneapolis?

what's her personality? maybe, if she sounds perfect, i could talk someone into bringing me to meet you halfway or something.....that'd be a long drive though. but i bet i could. where are you?

i've decided i want to get another cat, maybe this is the perfect opportunity! tell me all about her.

Faile: that sounds like it might work. I'm near Cleveland, OH. I think the halfway point is Chicago. Still, that's an 8-hour drive one-way. Anyone interested in making a driving chain?

Elyse is writing up something on Bud's personality and what she likes. I'll post it later today.

Here is the write-up on Bud's personality from Elyse. She writes:

"Bud is an affectionate, playful kitty, who really enjoys other's
company. She loves to sleep on people, sit in laps, and can climb
almost anywhere. It took her about a week to warm up to my other (much
larger) cat, but they soon became the best of friends, chasing each
other around the apartment, and frequently cuddling together. She has a
fascination with water, and loves to sit in empty bathtubs and sinks,
even if she gets a little wet. Bud's main diet has consisted of dry
Friskies (Ocean Fish flavor). One of the funniest things about her is
her love of people food. She has gobbled up black olives, popcorn,
bread, Doritos, and much more. You better keep a close eye on your meal
if Bud is around! I have watched some of her siblings grow up, and Bud
has remained tiny compared to them. Anyone would be lucky to have her
because she will make a wonderful friend!"

If you have specific questions, feel free to ask and I will answer them ASAP.

well, i have to admit, i saw her picture and i fell in love.
i will call around today and see if i can find someone to road trip with me! although, i think a chain might be the best thing, if we can find someone to do that.

so, it's 11-12 hours to cleveland from here, and i think about 7 to chicago.
well, i will make some calls to my car-owning friends. :wink:

is it possible to have her tested for feline leuk before i get her? i don't want to have to drive all the way to find out i can't keep her. if she had it, it's possible my other kitty could get it too, right?

I looked up maps on yahoo and see that it's only six hours to Chicago from here. Currently, Elyse is unable to drive, so we're trying to work out our weekend schedules. We're looking at February 28th to drive over. I know that's quite a ways away, so let me know if that's too long a wait for you and I'll see what I can do.

I can get Bud into the vet right away for the Feline leukemia test. No problem. In the meantime, she's inside and being well-fed.

Elyse is very excited about you taking Bud because she would like to hear about how she's doing in the future. And I know you'll keep us all apprised of her adventures. :)

Do you think you'll keep her name or change it?

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

oh, wow, feburary? that is a ways away!! and here i was looking at next weekend! :lol:

well, the sooner the better. i called a friend, and she'd said she'd probably be willing to drive, i'm thinking we'll probably go spend a day in chicago, get a hotel, and meet you the next day to get the cat and
drive back. we were thinking the 30th would work well because that is her last day of her job, but i understand if you can't make it then.

and i'd probably change her name, i do like to pick names for my animals. :wink:

The 30th is Elyse's birthday so she already has plans to meet up with family members that weekend. Perhaps the following weekend, weather permitting, of course?

I hate to make you wait so long after you've been so kind to adopt Bud.

I'd like to see the name changed. Naming any cat "Bud" just seems wrong. Do you have any names in mind or will you wait till you actually see her? I'm just curious. :)

ok, i'll talk with steph about the weekend after. she's at work right now, i'll have to wait a bit.

after seeing how little she was, the first name that popped in my head was 'half-pint.' of course, maybe i will think of something else after i meet her. :D

okiedoke.

I'm so excited about you taking her. Plus I get to meet someone from Cat Forum :!: I'll let you know how the feline leukemia test comes out when I get the results. It should be sometime next week.
