Meet our newest temporary office assistant Buttons. If you have visited our centre, you may have seen him on our front desk. He’s enjoying spending some time away from his pen, he loves lying out on top of our front desk watching people come and go from the centre. You can't miss him, he's a very handsome tabby boy with a meow which sounds like he's squeaking. Which we find adorable.

Today Buttons enjoyed sitting on the office desk, next to the computer I was working on. He decided he wanted to help me update our Facebook page by nudging the computer mouse with his nose. He sat on my lap purring happily with the occasional squeaky meow. He loves to squeak, he was telling me about his day. He sat back on the desk and enjoyed head butting my head for kisses. He’s very happy being around our CCAs and managers, he will make a great companion in a home. He had a little walk around our oldies corridor which adjoins on to our reception. He was greeting any volunteers, visitors and staff in the corridor with a little squeaky meow. After a busy morning, Buttons was back in his pen for an afternoon snooze until teatime.

Buttons is still looking for a loving home in time for Christmas. Buttons arrived at his previous owner's house ten years ago, starving and unable to eat as his teeth were so bad. He had clearly been neglected for some time. Once back to health, he proved to be a loving and happy cat. After ten years of happiness, his owner had to go into care and Buttons finds himself at Axhayes looking for a loving home in which to spend his retirement. He is a lovely boy who has a very sweet temperament and would make a wonderful companion. Say hello to Buttons when you visit our centre. We are hoping someone will fall in love with him soon. Who could resist?

If you are interested in adopting Buttons, please call us on 01395 232377 or please visit our website for more details about our homing policy. Thank you.
