This ‘Big Teddy Bear’ Named Buster Is Looking For His ‘Purr-fect’ Fit
Time for our adoptable animal of the week, and this week our featured pet is Buster, who showed up on a farm near Waseca and is now looking for his fairytale ending, which is a family that fits JUST right.
Michaela Tews has more on Buster's story, and what kind of family would be the right fit for him to enjoy the rest of his days.
Meet our big teddy bear, Buster! We don’t know much about Buster’s early life until he showed up at a farm near Waseca late this past fall. Buster is a lover, not a fighter, but the resident tomcat didn’t want him there. Between skirmishes with that cat and possible frostbite, Buster’s left ear was in rough shape. We got him to a vet who neutered him and fixed up his ear, but he will always have a “cauliflower ear.” He hears just fine out of it, and we think it adds to his charm!
Buster is about 2 years old and is possibly the friendliest cat in the world! His foster mom’s nickname for him is “Velcro” because he likes to be right by her as much as possible. He is a purrbox who loves to snuggle and be petted and held. He loves playing with the other cats in his foster home, so would do well in a home with another cat. He also gets along fine with the respectful dog in his foster home. Kids would also likely be fine as long as they are considerate and respectful. Buster does need some help with minor cleaning of his repaired ear once or twice a week, but otherwise, he is very healthy, FIV and feline leukemia negative, neutered, and current on all vaccinations.
