Wonderful new! Button's foster family has decided to adopt her and give her an amazing forever home!!!! A million thank yous to Julien and JP for giving this truly adorable girl a second chance!


UPDATE: January 17

Check out below how happy Button is in her foster home!! Thanks to Julien and JP for providing her with all the care and love she needs!

Button's health is looking up and she loves to play with her humans. She is seriously one of the sweetest, most affectionate kittens you could meet! Please consider giving this lovely kitty a forever home!

Wow!! I have discovered Button is a girl! I had previously been informed that she was in fact male and I never got a chance to confirm this until last night! This comes as no surprise as Tortoiseshell kitties are usually female. But nevertheless this doesn't change the fact that she is still as cute as a Button!!!

Button will be collected today by her foster. Unfortunately she is still having trouble shaking the symptoms of what is most likely the feline herpes virus, but no doubt a warm home will be her first step to a real recovery (Thank you Julien!). Button settled in well last night, had a great appetite and was happy to run, roll and frolic with Panther, who I will foster. And no wonder, this is the first time they haven't lived in a small confined space! Button is incredibly adorable and I feel positive she will find a fantastic forever home!

MANY THANKS AGAIN to everyone who kindly donated towards Button and the other kitten's vet expenses for the last couple of weeks. This really enabled to give them a good fighting chance in life!

Please consider giving this lovely kitty a forever home!

Yay!!! Lucky Button has found a wonderful foster home come this weekend! Cleverly sweet Button was successful in charming his way into the hearts of one lovely couple! Many thanks again Julien!!


UPDATE: January 6

Lucky Button received a very generous donation this week from a lovely couple all the way from Belgium! MANY MANY THANKS to Bruno and Kathleen Cassiers for your kind donation and looking out for one sweet kitten in need across the seas!


UPDATE: January 3

Wow!!! Button's eyes have cleared up and he has really come out of his shell in the time he's been at the vets! I can't believe it's the same kitten! He's transformed in a week from a shy feral kitten to a very friendly affectionate kitty who purrs rather loudly and loves to cuddle! An amazing transformation to say the least!

Unfortunately, he and his brothers also have a case of ear mites and need to remain at the vets for another 6 days before they can go to homes, not to mention putting extra pressure on our purse strings!!

So I have started a fundraiser to seek either sponsors or donations, as well as fosters and adopters, for Button and his brothers's boarding fees, food and medical care, until they are ready to go to new homes.

You can read more about the event here >>> http://www.animalrescuekorea.org/blog/dbis/urgent-fosters-and-adopters-n...

PLEASE PLEASE spare a few pennies to help give Button and his brothers fighting chance for the new year!


Button is a sweet 3 or 4 month year old kitten who was rescued along with his two brothers, Pea and Bean, by Mr Park from the Asan city pound.

Currently he and his siblings are being boarded at a wonderful vet in Cheonan after recently contracting a mild eye infection and cold symptoms. Since going to the vets and spending some time apart from his brothers, Button has really come out of his shell and craves the attention and affections of anyone who will give him time! I was astounded to see how much he has transformed from a little wild, shy, lethargic kitten to a bright eyed, energetic affection sweetie pie in such a short amount of time! Other volunteers and myself have decided to quarantine the kittens at this vet until suitable fosters or adopters come along. However, because of the expenses incurring daily at the vets, which I might add were heavily and kindly discounted, we are also seeking an URGENT FOSTER and donations and sponsorships for Button, his brothers and three other kittens. Currently, I'm in the process of setting up an event for this so please stay tuned for more information!!

Button, which I named after his cute little kink in his tail, is a very sweet friendly kitten who is eagerly awaiting for that special someone and/or family to sweep him up and take him into a warm loving home! Please consider giving Button a happy new year and welcoming this cutie into your life!

Button is at home with us and she's doing extremely well!! She's completely overwhelmed with new things to do and plays constantly. She chases toys, pens, feet and even her own shadow. She has a great appetite and purrs relentlessly. She's truly the loveliest kitten I've met in Korea.
