Buddy & Sam

Buddy is doing well. But he would do much better with a very active and playful friend, and if all goes well, we will have one for him in another month or so. We can only be outside so much, throw so many tennis balls, drag Buddy and the knotted rope around the yard so many times, and play hide and seek so many times before the passers-by think we are nuts hiding behind trees and bushes, lol!

He loves for us to throw the rope on the clothes line so he can jump and get it....


and over...

Buddy would also love to play with Sam, but being an old, set-in-his-ways cat, Sam doesn't take too well to Buddy jumping all over him. He does well just to watch from the sidelines.

Sam has his own patch of catnip that sprouted up at the edge of the yard this year. He goes there and hides from Buddy... but Buddy usually finds him and thinks he's playing hide and seek like Rufus used to do in the weeds.

So Sam usually makes his way back up to the porch and he and Buddy keep each other company... at a distance...

That's it for today!
Have a safe and fun Memorial weekend!

Take care and God bless,
