Maybe some kittens just have disc jockey in their veins.

It was a challenge to keep Butters off the console, as he was eager to get his paws on those nobs, sliders and switches, ready to take the airways with his meowing and purring banter. He definitely had the broadcaster's gift for gab.

It was Another Take Me Home Tuesday at the radio stations with the Humane Society of Western Montana, sponsored by our animal-loving friends at Paul's Pancake Parlor. As we approach the height of kitten season at the shelter, Janet wanted us to meet Butters, an affectionate, playful kitty, easy to please judging by his unprompted purring.

Butters does have a medical condition that makes him prone to bladder stones, so prior to adoption, he is having surgery to remove them, and it is likely he will need to be on a special diet the rest of his life, so the stones hopefully do not come back.

He will also be neutered prior to being made available, so Janet estimated he will be good to go in about three weeks.


Janet tells us that a lot of people don't realize that the Humane Society of Western Montana does have a veterinarian medical team to assist with various treatments and spaying and neutering prior to pets being made available for adoption. This is all part of their "Sheltered Medicine" vision of getting animals as much in-house treatment as they need, with all expenses covered in advance of adoption.

The Humane Society of Western Montana consistently offers free to low-cost vaccination clinics for your pets, based on your ability to pay. The next clinic is Saturday, March 23, 12:30 - 3:00 p.m., at the Missoula Fairgrounds. And be sure to visit the shelter's WEBSITE to find out more about upcoming events.

We were sure buttered-up by Butters and hope you will be, too!

LOOK: Stunning animal photos from around the world

From grazing Tibetan antelope to migrating monarch butterflies, these 50 photos of wildlife around the world capture the staggering grace of the animal kingdom. The forthcoming gallery runs sequentially from air to land to water, and focuses on birds, land mammals, aquatic life, and insects as they work in pairs or groups, or sometimes all on their own.
