Favorite Nap Spot: on sofa in a sunny spot or flat out on your lap
Favorite Food: fancy feast, meow mix (wet)
Skills: Buddy can high five with the correct paw for a treat
Arrival Story: Buddy came in our home to see if he was adoptable so that we could give him to a friend who wanted to get a cat. We wanted to see if he was happy living inside since he was a stray for the 1st year of his life. He never left....
Our sweet Buddy passed away today after a short illness. All of his family will miss his talkative nature and gentle way. Rest In Peace Bud Bud.
Bio: Buddy is the oldest of our cats. He definitely is the alpha male and when he wants to show who is the boss, does at will.
Most of the time, he is very docile and lets the others eat first, play with new toys first, and watches over them...like a parent.
He rules with a firm but gentle paw.
Forums Motto: The Boss of the Bunch and Guardian Angel
I am settling in at the Bridge. There is so much to learn
in being an angel. I am use to just sleeping on the bed and
hanging out with my family.
My angel family members are getting me caught up on things.
I hardly recognized Bunka.I haven't seen her in 14 years.
I was just a little tike when she passed away. She still looks great.
Wriggley is still very funny and told me some great new jokes.
Stripey and Dice gave me big furry hugs when they greeted me.
I know I will be happy here. I am watching over my earth family
and making sure they are okay. I know it is a big adjustment not having me around. I was the talker.
Always something to say. I am sure it is much quieter around the house these days.
They received my paw print today. I sat with Mom while she cried. I knew she felt me there and
started to smile.
I will visit her again when they return my ashes.
Thank you for the giftees and sweet words for my DDP and to let my family know you are thinking of us.
We really appreciate your kindness.
Mom had always come to Catster for support and healing when
she has lost a furbaby.
With all the changes and glitches, she was not able to do this after my
journey last weekend.
We all have our own way of coming to terms with the loss and she was
just so sad that she could come to where she knows that she can heal. Whether it is posting long forgotten photos and videos or just reading the beautiful words that our Catster family send in support.
Today she was able to post some of the many photos that she has
found over the last week.
Hoping this is a positive step in having our site back real soon.
We never know when it the time will come to say good-bye.
It may come over time or it may come quickly and unexpected.
Maybe saying good-bye to you our sweet boy was a little bit of both.
I found myself taking so many photos of you over the last year because I knew that with you turning 15, time was not on our side.
Thank you for all of your unconditional love, Buddy Boy. You were a true friend.
A song keeps playing in my head. So, that will be how we say farewell.
Goodbye to you, my trusted friend.
We've known each other since we're nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills or trees.
Learned of love and ABC's,
skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the wine and the song,
like the seasons, all have gone.
