My name aside, I’m no goober! What I am is a bright-eyed (of a beautiful copper color), friendly, and energetic fellow. As soon as you enter my room I will come to greet you, all the while conversing with you to encourage some Peanut loving. I’m not a lap cat and I don’t like to be picked up, but I will jump up without hesitation to sit beside you while you stroke my ultra soft and very handsome orange and white fur. When I was a baby boy I was extremely shy, but I have left most of that behind me other than my aversion to being picked up. You won’t find a more affectionate or more social guy than me. George Washington Carver devised many uses for peanuts, but I believe that Peanut was put on this earth just to share love with his person or persons.

Update October 2013: Arriving as a wee one and part of the “nutty” litter, Peanut is hoping as a today’s featured Tabby Tuesday feline, perhaps it will be his turn to be picked from the assortment of kitties here at the Sanctuary. Still very much a teen in heart and soul at just 3 yrs of age, Peanut is as handsome as they get with his pristine, long white legs and chest and chestnut colored cape keeping his shoulders and back areas all velvet to touch. A friendly, very appealing fellow, Peanut arrived feeling very shy and overwhelmed but today he is all warm and cuddly BUT just not in your lap! Perfectly content to sit right by your side and or “wow” you with his dexterity as he deftly balances on his rear legs and stretches way up to head butt your hand or grab an enticing snack, Peanut eagerly engages everyone from his first meet and greet. Peanut’s an addictive fellow all right like an self respecting “nut,” and it would suit him just fine if you felt compelled to have more than one “nut” in your home. Come on by today and see why this gentle fellow could really be the pick of the litter.

Update Spring 2022: Peanut participated in our 2022 March Meow Madness competition in the hopes of securing a pile of treats and toys. He advanced past Theo before falling to Nona in a nail-bitingly close match in the second round. Peanut is well known for his trademark squeak. It’s absolutely adorable, and in my opinion a video doesn’t do it justice. Come hear it for yourself in person!

Update Fall 2022: Peanut was adopted June 11, 2022 but sadly he was returned to CFC when his adopters noticed issues with their other cats in the home. They decided it was safest for Peanut to return. When he arrived back, he went straight from his carrier to his condo in R1 like he had never left. He seemed to be relieved that he was back. The staff and volunteers have wel- comed Peanut back to his home, where he will now be a Lifetime Resident. Although he won’t be available for adoption, don’t let this stop you from visiting with him.
