Cat of the Week: Buttons in DC

Cat of the Week badge

Each week in this space, we feature a senior cat in need of adoption or sponsorship. Please remember all the older cats in shelters. They make great companions, and unlike kittens, they (probably) won’t climb the curtains! Adopt a senior cat, and help him or her enjoy the best years of their life.

Today, please meet this handsome tabby named Buttons. Buttons is a 7-year-old male, and we are told he is very social and likes to have a  good time. He likes to play, but he’s also easy-going and enjoys just napping in a sun puddle. Buttons gets along with other cats and could be a good companion for another cat.

Buttons is currently at the New York Avenue NE Adoption Center of the Humane Rescue Alliance. Find out more about him here.

Can’t adopt but still want to help? Learn how you can sponsor an animal at the Humane Rescue Alliance, or check out this page to learn other ways to donate.


  1. What a handsome boy! I've been meaning to start a feature like this and then it totally slips my mind! I couldn't help but chuckle at your comment on older cats not climbing curtains. My Kitty ignored mice for the first 9 years of her life and then all of a sudden became a mouser and picked off one after another. I enjoy speculating what it was that changed for her ... maybe she caught a mouse in her food? Maybe she was biding her time until they became fat and complacent? Bear's slowed down quite a bit and I have to admit that I miss his wilder days a little bit ;)

  2. What a sweet face!!! And 7 is young...that precious boy has lots of love left to give a forever family!

  3. Buttons looks like a very nice cat. I hope he finds a furever home soon.
