Description

Buttercup is Primrose's pet cat. He is considered to be an ugly cat because of his matted, dirty fur and his scrunched up nose. He also has an ear with a chunk missing. His name is derived from Prim's belief that his yellow fur is comparable to the flower.

Buttercup was rescued and cured by Prim, making them instant friends. On the other paw, Katniss, Prim's older sister, does not have much luck with the feline. This is because Katniss had tried to drown the animal at one point.

Buttercup serves as a source of comfort for Prim when Katniss is in the 74th and 75th Hunger Games. He later becomes a source of comfort for Katniss when the two put aside their differences after an unfortunate accident.
