Hi! I'm Butternut Squash, but people just call my Butternut.

I've been at the shelter a little over a year now. All my other siblings were adopted when we were kittens so I'm the only one left! I like playing with other cats as long as they are nice to me, as I am a little skittish. If something scares me I will scurry back to my kennel where I am warm and safe. I have a few quirks so I have to be supervised around certain things. My only flaw is that I have pica! That means that I eat things that aren't supposed to be eaten. I chewed up a toy once and had to have surgery to remove it, but I recovered well. Hard toys are best for me and I shouldn't have any blankets in my bed or I might munch on them.

I was born around 08/09/2018 and I am neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

If you're interested in adopting me please call 231-924-9230 or fill out an application on my shelter's website at
