This week's pet of the week is a laid-back cat named Bud.

Bud is 12-years-old and a bit on the hefty side. Project Hope Humane Society says Bud is extremely friendly and loving. He also does well around other cats and dogs.

Bud is fully vetted and neutered, and his adoption fee is only $35.

If you want to make Bud a part of your forever home call Project Hope at 618-638-4555.
