Buttons has had a very rough start to life. He was rescued from a roadside after being dumped along with his litter-mates, but was the only one to survive. After a struggle to overcome a serious case of cat flu and feline herpes he unfortunately escaped and was attacked by a feral cat. He survived that attack and although it left him severely disabled for months and FeLV positive he is a now just over a year old and a very happy, playful kitty. He still can’t walk properly, but loves sitting on his cat activity centers looking out at the birds and dogs going by. Buttons is truely a very special cat and has such a fighting spirit! I have never given up on him and I never will. He really brings joy to my life, and everyone that meets him feels the same.
I love this picture. You can see the St Francis medal on his collar. He always wears it.
