Long-term foster week: Buckley
During this week I'm featuring wonderful cats who have been in foster care for a while. BUCKLEY is a fantastic cat who was found in a feral colony! But he's no feral cat. Fostermom Sarah writes: "This pic shows Buckley's ferociousness when it comes to window treatments. Grrrrr."
Sarah also says about Buckley "He's kind of a "bro cat". He plays hard, he naps hard, he eats like a champ. But he's the farthest thing from being too cool for kisses and snuggles--he loves to curl up on my lap or next to me on the couch. He will even wedge himself between me and the back of the couch while I'm watching a movie and make himself a little "snuggle fort" and purr away. ◊ He's extremely curious about everything! Where the water comes from in the faucets, what makes the vacuum cleaner so noisy (although he keeps his distance), what I'm actually doing when I do the dishes, what's in the refrigerator (he actually tries to climb in there!), what's behind his litter box, what's at the end of a string...it keeps me smiling! ◊ He's become quite the chatty little guy! If I ask him a question or even just throw a general "Meow!" his way, he'll usually answer...or talk back. I can never tell! ◊He's awesome at letting me trim his front claws. Mostly he just goes limp and I can tell he's all "just get it over with".
He'd make a great addition to any family. He'd be a great companion if you live on your own, or an awesome buddy if you're a couple, and he'd love to be in the action if you're a family with kids."
