Butterscotch is ready for a home. (FUNDS FOR FURRY FRIENDS)

Canada's most famous cat is looking to be adopted — to an "inside-only home" please.

Butterscotch the cat — who made national headlines during a weeks-long ordeal with what was thought to be a bird feeder on his head, is looking for an adoptive home.

Butterscotch is currently in the hands of pet rescue organization Funds For Furry Friends. They helped coordinate the cat's corralling, despite one ornery neighbour. The 'bird feeder' turned out to be a child's bug catcher. 

After his capture, he spent some time at the pound, waiting to be claimed, but no one came forward.

Butterscotch didn't settle in to his rescue home right away, according to Fund For Furry Friends, but they say that with a little time and patience, he turned into a normal, lovable cat.

It turns out that Butterscotch likes to cuddle and get pats and scratches under his chin. He likes playing with toys, too.

Funds For Furry Friends is looking for a quieter household to adopt Butterscotch, and they say it must be an indoor-only environment.

They say that there’s a $90 fee for adoption, which partially covers some of the fees that they've incurred, like de-worming and vaccinations. Butterscotch has also been neutered.

For more information on the adoption process, see the Fund For Furry Friends website at

They currently have more than 20 rescued cats available for adoption — and more than 40 dogs, too.
