Buddy was a kitten that I rescued from Grand Avenue back in 2011 - one of my first of many rescues! - and he was adopted out in spring of 2012 to just the nicest family.
Here is what I posted in March of 2012:
In yesterday's post, I mentioned Buddy, Rufus and Me. Last Friday I was presented with the opportunity of someone wanting a cat under a year. Well, Buddy fit that bill. This couple were looking for a companion for their female two year old cat. With much hesitation, due to the fact that I have fallen in love with Buddy, and he is best friends with Rufus, I brought him over and left him. I felt terrible. Usually, when I rescue, the cats pretty much immediately go to their new homes. But with Buddy and Rufus, and Midnight and Buster, I've had for a few months now, and of course you become attached. I hope and pray, and am told by his new Mommy, that he is doing well, and slowly adjusting. But how does Buddy feel? Can cats have separation anxiety? Do they feel grief? I have noticed Rufus is not his old self. He used to run like a madcat around the house, and he isn't doing that anymore. The two of them were terrors together. I do hope that Buddy is adjusting, and that Rufus will get his old mojo back. Only time will tell. I will keep you posted on progress for both.
