Happy Got-Cha Day Buddy Budd!

Hi Furends

What time is it? Why it's time for Buddy Budd's Got-Cha Day!

It seems like only yesterday that Buddy came and said hello. To be honest me and Toby hardly noticed he had arrived on 12/31/08 930pm. 
He spent the first two weeks on the bathroom shelf

Then on 01/14 he moved under Dad's desk for two
more weeks.

 He would come out at night and we would hear him exploring while we were in the bedroom with Dad. The end of January he was finally ready to meet us all.

I made him feel like he belonged.

Buddy: You sure did Timmy. Toby
and Dad too!

Buddy: Next thing ya know I was having FUN!

Buddy: I helped Dad

Buddy: I was a big guy at 20+ pounds

See I came from a bad situation and the only enjoyment I had was food. Dad did research on cats and weight and learned how bad Kibble can be. We worked as a family to switch to stinky goodness. 

Buddy: A year later I was 15 pounds and now hold
between 13-14. I feel and look GREAT!

We really have to thank him as due to his weight Dad decided to explore cat nutrition and now we all eat healthier without Kibble in our diets. We do have a small bit as a treat. Buddy its your show. Take it away.

Buddy: Thanks Timmy

Look how good I look at 13 pounds and almost
13 years! Good living does it!

This is from my Meezer pals Pipo and Minko the Meezers
on Catster

This is from my Catster pals Manytoes, Lynzee
and family with a Happy Mew Year too!
Enough about me and my story. Lets PARTY!

Have some nip to get that appetite going!

Nip-Tini with Nip-on-da-rim anycat?

A Family Furend Brews this with Nip
Instead of Hops

Now get ready. Maybe close your eyes and follow you noses

Lobster, a Cats best Friend! MOL!

You can have steak too if you would like!

There is plenty of Chick-Hen if you like!

After you are done these main courses lay back and relax with some finger foods and a cool drink.

Watch the cheese if you have lactose problems.
Rumpy! Buttons! Dad does not need a clean
up in aisle living room!

Rumpy! For guests and those
who can handle it only!

Enjoy yourselves and please do not drive if you have a bit too much nip.

We have plenty of room if you stay over!

Thanks so much for helping me enjoy my Gotcha Day

Your Buddy
Buddy Budd

You know, I am so grateful to be reading this post now, as I wasnt much more than a kitten and stray when this Gotcha Day celebration took place. Now, sad as it may be, we are so happy to see how things started for Buddy.
Purrs to our lost friends and those we shall never meet.
