Hi, Our Names are Peanut and Butters!

Screen-Shot-2015-04-30-at-9.02.49-AM

This adorable pair of ginger tabby cats are looking for a loving home where they can stay together in the Denver, CO area. They are very well behaved, clean and affectionate house cats. They will be rehomed with their supplies. Please offer them a home today.

Both of my cats are very sweet, good-natured, friendly animals who follow me around our apartment to whatever room I go to. They are playful, get along great together (though occasionally have some cat spats) and are well behaved.

Peanut – he is the smaller of the two, he is a very sweet cat but especially with the people he bonds with. Around new people, he is more shy (he will go hide under the bed) but he quickly warms up to people. On a quiet night, he will insist on sitting on your lap for some attention. At night, he loves to sleep on the foot of the bed. He does not like cat treats but loves cat toys!

Butters – he is the bigger of the two cats and he is definitely the more outgoing one. He will walk right up to someone new and expect pets with a loud purr. He is a pretty lazy cat but gets in the mood for play especially with certain toys. He LOVES his food and his cat treats so will easily become someone’s BFF if they give him food. Butters loves to be around people but he’s not really a lap cat, he’s more likely to sit next to you rather than on you.

Peanut and Butters’s Personality

Both of my cats are very sweet, good-natured, friendly animals who follow me around our apartment to whatever room I go to. They are playful, get along great together (though occasionally have some cat spats) and are well behaved.

Around new people, he is more shy (he will go hide under the bed) but he quickly warms up to people. On a quiet night, he will insist on sitting on your lap for some attention. At night, he loves to sleep on the foot of the bed. He does not like cat treats but loves cat toys!

Butters – he is the bigger of the two cats and he is definitely the more outgoing one. He will walk right up to someone new and expect pets with a loud purr. He is a pretty lazy cat but gets in the mood for play especially with certain toys. He LOVES his food and his cat treats so will easily become someone’s BFF if they give him food. Butters loves to be around people but he’s not really a lap cat, he’s more likely to sit next to you rather than on you.

Peanut and Butters’s Current Home Environment

Currently, we live in an apartment that has a balcony but before this we lived in a house in the city. They have always been indoor cats but with supervision taken outside (please see cute story below). We have a large dog that the cats get along with (they don’t play together usually but they tolerate each other).

Peanut and Butters’s Current Family:

For the first 2 years, it was just me and the two cats. 2 years ago we moved across the country from Maryland to move-in with my fianc? and his dog into an apartment where we have been every since. Peanut and Butters are brothers — they were both adopted from the shelter when they were 6 weeks old by me. I initially was only going to get one cat and Butters came to the front of the cage and I loved him immediately but as I was going to open the cage, Peanut tackled him in the cage and I knew that I couldn’t separate them from each other and ended up coming home with both of them!

Peanut and Butters’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?

They both LOVE chasing a red laser?by far their favorite toy. But they pretty much love all toys. Their favorite activity is sleeping (let’s be honest) but a close second is going on walks — in the apartment building we go on walks on our floor. They eat regular dry cat food but like wet food when they get a chance.

Cute Peanut and Butters Story:

I have a lot of these but one of my favorites is in Baltimore, we lived in a row home and the cats always wanted to go outside so I decided to train them to walk on leashes. So eventually we got to the point where me and my two cats could go on walks on the block — we usually only made it 1 block before they would get a little scared and want to come back but we quickly became neighborhood celebrities!

Why is Peanut and Butters Being Rehomed?

The main reason we need to rehome Peanut and Butters is that our apartment has implemented a policy that we are only allowed to have 2 pets and so either we needed to re-home the dog or the two cats since I am not willing to separate the cats from each other. We considered moving to a house but we are moving to New York City for our jobs in a year where we will also need to live in an apartment and we are fairly certain we will run into similar pet policies there. As a result, we thought we would try to rehome them now to make sure they are well settled before we move. The second reason is the up-keep. We live in a smallish apartment and with two cats and a dog, we are really struggling to keep things clean from all the shedding — ultimately this is why we decided on rehoming the cats instead of the dog. We are both doctors and as such work very long hours so it is becoming a real challenge to clean at the end of every day which is adding a lot of additional stress. I love my cats dearly and this has been a very difficulty decision for me but given the overall situation, I think they will be happier in a larger home.

Peanut and Butters’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:

I just want them to be in a safe home with people who know what it means to take care of cats (ie. attention, play, up-keep). They are very sweet cats and I have no doubt they will adjust to their new family whether they have kids or dogs. I am not sure how they will do with other cats since they never been exposed to other cats other than each other. I do think they would benefit and love a home that was bigger than what we have now and/or has a yard since they love to be outside.

Additional Comments:

Peanut and Butters are very well behaved, I’ve never had an issues with marking or urinating outside of their litter box. They do scratch – Peanut always scratches on the scratching post, Butters sometimes will scratch on furniture but we use a spray water bottle and this discourages him but some training may need to be done again in a new environment. Peanut and Butters will sometimes fight each other but it’s usually brief, can easily be broken up by calling their names and has never resulted in any harm to each other — it’s some sort of competitive brother thing.

Both cats are microchipped.

I have plenty of other pictures I can provide but I thought the one I attached shows just how cute they are as brothers!
