2019 07 22 buckHaving come all the way from Montreal, seven-year-old Buck is a total sweetheart who is looking for a special family to love him for the rest of his life! 

When cats arrive at Furry Friends from high-kill shelters, often they are not in the best condition and Buck is no exception to that rule.

Buck came to us with ears full of polyps that needed to be surgically removed, and a very uncomfortable complication with his eyelids that caused them to roll inwards and irritate his eyes.

All of these painful problems, along with the fact that he was in an totally new place with new people, sights, and smells, caused him to be understandably reclusive and jumpy!

Buck has had multiple operations to fix both his eye and ear problems, and he has since recovered beautifully and is a much brighter, happier boy because of it.

As a side effect of having the polyps removed, Buck is now a little hard of hearing and would appreciate everyone approaching him from the front so that he doesn't get startled.

His life-changing surgeries were completed entirely thanks to the donations and support from our community.

Nowadays, Buck is still a little on the shy side, but being able to see clearly with pain free eyes has done wonders for his personality!

Buck is happy to snuggle into a bed and accept gentle pets and kind words of encouragement, and he was quite a fan of watching our med-room volunteers working and taking care of his friends!

Once he gets used to you and understands that you're a friend, he's a total peach. We're confident that in his forever home, he'll become more and more outgoing as he learns how much good life has to offer him!

Due to his timid nature, Buck would do best in a quiet home with no young children.
