update on The Budster

The morning after his dental surgery, Buddy was very sedated. He didn't show up for breakfast that day so we had to find him in the house. He didn't move from his spot for a good part of that day. Slowly on Tuesday afternoon he started to come to life more and since then he continues to gain energy each day. He's still not completely back to his old self yet but he's well on his way.


Buddy's biggest need lately seems to be tummy tubs and cuddles. He is typically rather cuddly, but lately he has been non-stop cuddle-boy. He seems to get great comfort by snuggling with me and having his tummy rubbed. Of course I don't mind taking care of those needs one bit!


Thankfully, I've had a light work schedule so far this week, so I have been able to be home a lot to take care of Buddy's needs. Definitely a win-win for all involved!


Buddy has resumed his play with Nahum. Those two seem to really enjoy each other, it's fun to watch, although since the surgery, I have been concerned about Buddy tearing out his stitches. So far so good. 








Nahum baits Buddy to tussle by flashing his irresistible fluffy tummy - who can resist such a scrumptious delight?!


Buddy is starting to look at home again and has even taken back up to playing with his favorite toys.


This is the look I get nightly. He parks in the middle of the floor and just stares at me. He's telling me, "it's late and it's time to go to bed so we can snuggle." So, I'd better not keep him waiting...

  1. There is nothing better than a snuggly cat! -- especially if he has a "scrumptious tummy"

  8. I should think that around the clock tummy tickles should just about do the trick!

  13. I like Buddy. Maybe that is because we are both old and my tooth hurts too!
