This is Buddy -- He reminds us of OUR buddy - Casper
Buddy is a big cuddly polar bear! You would never guess, seeing him now, that he used to be a big-time stuntman in Los Angeles. But it's true - at least we think it is. Unfortunately, his last stunt didn't go so well. When he was found in Hollywood, he had a broken hip, a broken jaw, a broken tail, and a detached retina. Ouch! As a result, he now has trouble making it to the litter box. But you've never seen a guy so happy in retirement. Buddy is so easy-going, he sits in the tub and purrs during his twice-weekly baths.
This is Frankie - He's a PAPER SHREDDER - like ME!
Frankie loves paperwork! What? Paperwork? Who loves that? Well -- Give some to this cat, and he can have fun for hours shredding it up! And actually, you don't even have to give it to him -- he'll find it. Unfortunately, Frankie lived with a woman whose boyfriend had a home office! We probably don't even have to tell you where this is going... One day the boyfriend came home to find his office decorated with small snowdrifts of shredded paper! He was so angry. He told Frankie's person that Frankie had to go. Instead, she decided that Frankie wouldn't be the only one going -- she moved out! Even though she had only found Frankie as a stray a few months earlier, she felt she had to do all that she could to make sure he was safe. Unfortunately, all she could afford was a small studio apartment. Frankie was used to being outside, and he didn't like being all cooped up in that small space. His person was working late every day, and didn't have much time to give to Frankie. Then Frankie got sick. He had a urinary problem that was pretty serious -- before she knew it his person had paid a couple thousand dollars in vet bills! She knew she and Frankie needed help. So she turned to Best Friends.Frankie has been living happily at the sanctuary for three years now. If you're wondering which cat he is, look for the most enormous orange cat you've ever seen! He's monumental! But he's no couch potato -- he's an active, playful cat. And he loves to be pet. Of course, no one is sure if he likes to be picked up, because no one can lift him!
Or course, meowmy couldn't resist Frankie - cause he reminds her of
Our BELOVED Grandpa SASQUATCH who waits patiently for her, at the Rainbow Bridge.
It's a good way to start out the new year, don't you think?
