Yesterday marked the first anniversary of my cat Buddy's death. I didn't even realize it until late at night when I was playing with Spook and noticed that his whiskers are finally growing back as he's getting calmer. Oddly, Miss Ultra-hyper Boo's whiskers are big and full now. Buddy's aggressive rampages resulted in him having broken, short and torn out whiskers for the last couple years of his life.
It was sad to lose Buddy, but I think it was best that he went when he did.
So, I'm just going to take a quick minute to remember him, but ultimately, it's more important that Buddy was loved when he was alive. I'm sure he understands that my focus is on Wizard, Spook and Boo now. One should look to the future and not be mired in their past.
