Butterball is an approximately 3-year-old female short-haired white and black cat who resembled a ball of dirt when she was rescued as a stray last Thanksgiving. She was so dirty, her white hair was almost gray. But now, Butterball's coat is shiny and pretty again, and she is proving to be a fun-loving feline.
The folks at Arizona Friends for Life say Butterball loves people and is probably good with other animals and children. She enjoys receiving attention and is very playful. Snuggling is a favorite activity.
Butterball lives with other cats at the downtown Gilbert adoption center of Friends for Life. She is altered, FELV/FIV negative, microchipped, and current on vaccinations. If you are interested in meeting Butterball, contact Friends for Life at (480) 497-8296 or visit www.azfriends.org.
