This Bud's For You!
When Caresse Duford first encountered Bud at the ASPCA Adoption Center, she knew in an instant he was the kitty for her. “He took to my sister and me right away, rubbing up against us and purring,” recalls Caresse. “You could tell he really needed some attention and someone to play with!”
Bud came to the ASPCA from New York City Animal Care & Control. “NYCACC is an open-admission shelter, and other shelters and rescue groups help to reduce their numbers by taking animals and adopting them out,” explains the ASPCA’s Allison Cardona, Director, Volunteer Program & Special Projects.
Caresse describes Bud’s homecoming as quite the trip. “He was not happy to be in the cat carrier, so he decided to do something about it—he chewed his way right out! Luckily we drove instead of taking the train. As soon as he got out and could sit on our laps, he chilled out, started purring and remained quite content!”
These days, Caresse and Bud are the happiest of housemates. Caresse tells us, “He has claimed my room as ‘his’ room and that is okay with me. Bud has a great personality and I love every inch of him!”
