good asking

The voting is in from the previous post - Buddy was indeed asking for bedtime cuddles, which actually involves another dinner and tummy rubs, so technically everyone is right! When we go upstairs to bed, he gets a snack before climbing into bed and cuddling in for tummy rubs. He likes the same routine every night - no deviations are permitted!

In this more recent picture, taken tonight, Buddy is clearly asking for early dinner. Dinner time is 6pm and they always petition for dinner to be early! Buddy is not shy about getting in my face and making sure his request is received.

And here he is asking for second dinner, only an hour after first dinner! It never stops!

I'm very happy to report that the steroid treatment he's getting for IBS seems to be helping. He's gone from horking nearly daily to now maybe once a week. And he actually looks like he's gaining some weight, even though the scale doesn't seem to indicate any gain. His middle feels more solid. Yea for Buddy!!


  1. YAY! Happy to hear the horking is letting up with help from the steroid treatments.....horking is NOT fun!

    Hugs, Sammy

  2. YEA YEA YEA for Buddy and for us for guessing right! Heck, it was easy. All us cat parents see the same pleas. I love that Buddy only waits an hour before he asks for his second dinner! And bedtime..oh yes...Katie loves her bedtime ritual and she missed me terribly those 8 nights I was gone.

  3. Glad Buddy is improving. As for routine, today I started working 2 hours early and will probably stay at the earlier time for awhile. The routines that I've established with Chuck and Angel went out the window, so we'll have to re-routine ourselves...if I ever get my eyes open...
