Today’s adorable adoptable is Bushler, a beautiful, four-year-old ginger boy who was originally rescued as a semi-feral kitten from the woods next to a convenience store. He was adopted when young but then returned to Candy’s Cats for being too shy. Just like many cats, he isn’t confident in a new home, and he needs time to adjust to a new environment. Once he is comfortable with you, he’ll follow you around the house and loves to be petted.
As a shy cat, he won’t climb onto your lap by himself, but if you put him there and pet him, he will let you hear his best purr. He is most active in the evenings,when you’re most likely to see him play with a toy mouse or give the scratching post a good workout.
Bushler is a special boy because he has stomatitis and allergies to some grasses and foods. His stomatitis meant that he had to have all of his teeth pulled, and he sometimes gets mouth ulcers from a feline herpes virus infection, but don’t worry, he loves to eat soft food! He takes a supplement for his stomatitis to keep it under control.
He’s a great self-groomer and keeps himself looking good for the ladies. He needs an extra helping hand once a week with a sponge or damp towel bath to prevent his saliva from discoloring his beautiful fur.
Although he is an indoor cat, Bushler loves to lounge in sunbeams, and his favorite spot in his foster home is in the windowsill watching the cat TV or sitting on the stairs where he can see what his happening all over the household.
Bushler is good with the other cats in his foster home, and he doesn’t mind dogs. Visit Bushler’s Petfinder page where you can squee over his kitten photo and contact Candy’s Cats to learn more about how this sweet boy may be a good fit for your family.
