Busty, Big Boy, Fat Man, Crusty Busty, Bustasoris, Big One

Quick Bio:
-part feral-cat rescue

To sleep under the covers in the bed, drinking out of the bathroom sink faucet, to climb you like a tree, to plop his big self all over you

His brother Boogie, being woken up

Favorite Toy:
feather on a stick

Favorite Nap Spot:
Under the covers in the bed, on anyone who can hold him in their lap

Favorite Food:
He doesn't really have one. He eats diet cat food, but I hardly ever see him eat alot, I think he waits until we go to bed and raids the fridge!

As big as Buster is, he can climb a human being like you would not belive! He dosen't think he is a big cat.


Arrival Story:
Buster was found at the dump by our old house along with his sister and brother. We had to use a net to catch them, because they were wild. His sister who was a calico was small and very skinny and weak, so she was very easy to catch. Buster's brother was a little black cat, he was skinny and weak also, but didn't want to be caught, but we got him. Buster, even as a kitten was pretty big, but still skinny, he put up a fight and hid under the dumpster, after many attempts, we finally got him. All 3 kittys spent weeks in our spare bedroom that we used as the cat isolation room. I spent many hours sitting in the floor not moving but talking to get them used to me. After that I brought in toys and started to play with them. They went to the vet and checked out fine. It took a bout 2 weeks but they started to want to be petted and loved on, except Buster, he was very leary of me. His brother would lay in my lap next to his sister and purr. I tried to get buster to join them but he would have no part of it. About 3 weeks into this I came into the room and sat down. Buster's brother and sister ran to me and played in my lap until they fell asleep. All the sudden I felt something on my shoulder, it was Buster!!! He jumped on my shoulder and licked my ear!!! I was so happy!!! Buster's brother found a wonderful home with some very incredible people, who named him Sammy. He like Buster has grown to be a very big and loving cat. His sister found a wonderful home, and is a princess!!!! We gave Buster to our dear friend Rob as company to his cat Little Bit. We saw Buster just about every other day. He was a sweet cat who loved to be petted and loved on. Little Bit was not to crazy about him though!! Rob kept telling me that Buster was getting bigger and bigger, and he was but it wasn't fat he was just a big boy. Rob loved him and spoiled him rotten. our friend Rob died, suddenly from a heart attack. It was devastating to us as well as Buster. We brought Buster home to our house and he became part of our family. He mourned Rob's death for a while, but we gave him love and he seemed to get better. These days he is a big loving lump of cat!!! He has the sweetest face, and the best personality. All he wants is loving!!! We love him very much!!! Buster is a little over weight and we are working on slimming him down.

Buster won't drink out of the water bowl. He has to have fresh running water! Anytime you walk into the bathroom, he jumps on the counter by the sink and waits on you to turn the water on. As big as he is he has the smallest meow! He sounds like a kitten! He is a sweet boy! Buster passed away 2-17-2005 at 7:00 pm. We think his heart gave out on him. We heard a thud and found him at the bottom of the stairs. We rushed him to the vet, but he was at the rainbow bridge before we got out of the driveway. Dr.Giles checked him for us, several times, because I kept telling him Buster had to be in a coma, he tried to make me feel better, but I knew my big sweet boy was gone. It is now 8:47 pm and my heart is broken, and there is a sandness I just can't explain. I think maybe Rob was calling him because he was lonely, I know he will be ok now that Buster is there to keep him company. I miss you both.
