Butternut & Blackie

Butternut and his brother or good friend Blackie are a pair and the first thing we want folks to know is that we would really like to adopt them together. We suspect they are brothers but do not know for sure. Any one who knows these two comes to this conclusion very quickly -- they should not be separated. They are wonderful outgoing, affectionate cats. They are playful. Young and healthy. Lots of cat, each weighs 14 pounds. Vets are okay with that weight but warn they should not be allowed to put on more weight. They are a delight in a home, great companions, fun to have as part of the family. And, they are very content in life with each other. They are being fostered by the Nature's Select Store of Springfield, 540 W. Monroe. The store welcomes all visits with these two during store hours, which are 12 noon to 8 p.m.

Butternut and Blackie


Kasima means "beauty and elegance" and for this girl, it also means friendly, curious, and playful. This pretty 2-year-old lady has a great out-going personality and is at ease with guests. Definite black stripes mark silver fur with touches of honey brown. Kasima has good inside manners and faithfully uses her scratching post and litter box. She is quite fond of her squeaky mouse (which she freed from the end of her fishing pole toy) and is quick to toss it about and wrestle it into submission. Her feelings about being around children and other cats are not known. However, this little lady would be a great companion as she likes to be close to her human. Kasima enjoys being petted and picked up for a quick cuddle.

Sometimes, when her foster parent is standing outside the apartment door getting ready to come in, Kasima will make greeting meows and chirps from the other side of the door.
