My name is Butler, and I'm a young tuxedo guy with yellow/green eyes. I'd like to share my story with you.

I came to MaxFund as a feral kitten in 2016. I lived in the Shy room for almost three years. The volunteers worked hard on socializing me and showing me that people are good and loving. I was always willing to play and take treats, but I wouldn't allow them to touch me. Until one day, when I decided that they meant no harm, and I accepted pets. There were tears and cheers from those who loved me and worked so hard. And, then it happened. In February 2019, I was adopted. And the best part was I was going to live in a home where another cat from the Shy room already lived. It made everyone so happy!

Then, it all came crashing down. My owner gave me away, and that person had a cat who bullied me. And that is how I've come full circle. A happy forever life was in my grasp, and then it vanished. And, all my feline friends from my first time here-are all gone. I'm trying hard not to slip back to my old ways of not trusting people, but it's a struggle. The volunteers who helped me the first time I was here are being patient and giving me the time I need to readjust. Their hearts are broken for me.

I'm still a young cat with lots of years left. I get along fine with nice cats, who don't try to bully me. I need someone who will understand what I've been through and let me learn to trust again at my own pace. I promise you, I'll be the best cat I can be.
