Butternut has one thing on his mind, and that's playing! This energetic little guy loves to play, so he's hoping to find a forever home where he'll have a nice collection of toys and someone to play with him.
Butternut loves his toys, especially string toys and anything filled with catnip. He does a good job of keeping himself entertained when he's hanging out solo, but he's happiest when his humans make the toys move - much more exciting! Sometimes when Butternut is playing, he also likes to scooch along the carpet on his belly like a crocodile!
Even though playtime is his #1 priority, Butternut does have an affectionate side. He likes being picked up and petted, but given his youth and playful personality, settling in for naps isn't really his thing yet, although he's content just relaxing during the day.
Butternut came to APA! from a rural shelter along with some of his siblings. Understandably, he was very shy at first, but has quickly blossomed into such a sweet and playful young kitty! Given his past, Butternut seems to have lived with cats before, and he's pretty comfortable around polite dogs, but dogs prone to rough play may result in him scratching. Young kids are probably not a good match for him either, since he's still learning how to keep his claws to himself when he gets too excited.
Despite all the playing, Butternut is a pretty quiet kitty and has a super sweet, almost silent meow. He tends to be more playful in the evenings, but really, his energy is apparent all day long. Butternut would be happiest in a home where he has time and space to let his initial shyness settle and maybe where he'll have some other cat or dog roomies! Oh, and plenty of space for all of his toys is also a must!
