Meet Buddy . . .

Today I went up to my studio/office to sort through some boxes that I brought home from my storage unit and couldn't resist taking some photos of my sweet kitty, Buddy. Isn't he cute? :) He's a rescue who came to live with us in August of 2008. When we brought him home, he hadn't been eating for a while because he had kennel cough which is common in shelter cats because it spreads so easily. As you may know, a cat won't eat if it can't smell its food. The poor little kid had a stuffed up nose and he was so skinny :( He was in such bad shape that they only charged us the required licensing fee but not the adoption fee. I think he was $7.00 out the door ~ lol ~ but we'll never tell him that! He's priceless to us :)

Anyway, we got him fixed up with some good antibiotics and some high octane food. I kept dabbing the food on his nose so he'd lick if off at least ingest a little bit. Eventually he could taste it and, boy, was he excited! So were we :) Since then he's been eating like a champ! Maybe even a little too much but, whatever... he's happy and healthy :)  He loves to wrestle & play with dad and cuddle & just hang out with mom. He's a real joy to have around ♥

He found a sunbeam to nap in today :)

He was very interested in his own tail wagging ~ lol

I love his little pink toes!
It's supposed to be rainy here for the next week or so, so I'll have plenty of time to sort through those boxes. I think Buddy has the right idea... I'm going for a nice walk in the sun!
