Buddy 6 Years
Buddy joined me as a kitten back in 2014 (where he also had to contend with a German Shepard - Teyah!) Dreams of seeing a gorgeous bond between the 2 were quickly dashed as my housemate and I discovered all Teyah wanted to do was see if Buddy would fit in her mouth. Fast-forward a few years with no more dog, Buddy is lapping up the life of solitude and reign over the house. He is not one to shy away from mischief and mishaps, from a broken face caused by a misjudgment in cat door placement, to bringing in many wonderful 'gifts' over the years - Buddy has definitely aged me. Buddy has been my only little 'buddy' during both stages of lock down, enjoying the winter days on the couch, extra treats and affection. He is in need of a confidence boost, as his self-esteem took a hit when he made guest appearances in my Zoom lessons, with students commenting: "What a cute puppy!" and "Is that a bear?!"
