Buddy (with guest appearance by Amy & Kringle)

Buddy was surrendered to RAPS in November of 2009. The sign on the cage he was in while acclimatizing to the sanctuary described him as "VERY SWEET!" but also noted the reason for his surrender: it seems the boy was a pee-er.

Buddy has adjusted nicely to life at the sanctuary. These days, one of his favorite spots is on the ledge in front of the cage where our two non-feline residents, rabbits Amy and Kringle, live. Not sure if Buddy's figured out that this spot puts him at a perfect height for receiving cuddles from any humans in the vicinity, or if he just likes hangin' with the bunnies. Given his obvious pleasure whenever a volunteer or visitor stops to say hello, I'm suspecting it's the former.

Then again, those bunnies are just so darned cute that some cats will take advantage of an open door at feeding time to try and climb right in their cage with them... just to hang out.
