PARIS — Buttercup is the featured Pet of the Week at Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills.

Buttercup is a 7-year-old calico cutie. She’s a sweet cat that would flourish in the home of an older person who wants the companionship of a cat. A quiet cat, Buttercup, prefers living in a home without dogs. She is ready to bring you sweetness and spice up your life.

Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills is a no-kill, nonprofit shelter and adoption center for cats and dogs, and the holding area for stray dogs for 12 towns in Oxford County. The shelter is located at 9 Swallow Road.

Anyone interested in adopting a pet from RPC can visit the shelter as follows: Monday and Tuesday, closed; Wednesday and Thursday, noon to 4 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, noon to 5 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.
