Buddy     pawprints5.gif   pawprints5.gif   pawprints5.gif   pawprints5.gif

Sponsored by Julie Clark, Cedar Rapids, IA (June, 2010 - present)
Buddy lost his battle with FeLV and FIV on 11/28/12 after gradually losing weight over time.  He was happy and playful 'til the very end, and died peacefully in his sleep on a favorite pillow.

Witty Kitties:     May, 2010

Biography:        Buddy's rescuer wanted to keep him so badly, but he tested positive for feline leukemia and she didn't want to expose her other kitties to the virus.  She kept him separated from her other cat until we had an opening.  Unfortunately, shortly after he arrived he began to limp very badly.  We think he may have sprained his left front leg, perhaps chasing or being chased by the other cats in Room 2.  After a few days of R&R in our isolation room, he recovered completely.  In early 2012, he again injured his leg somehow, and again made a slow recovery.  He's a big talker in the mornings when the canned cat food is served, and is always one of the first to chow down.  We may have to watch his weight!  Anyway, after a little bit of a rough start, Buddy is settling in and quickly becoming one of our favorites!  Update:  On re-test, we discovered Buddy is BOTH FeLV+ and FIV+.
