Wed, March 13- Mr. Buster~

And this is Mr Buster!  He lives with Luna, cat #1, whose story a number of you loved, so read on!

March 13, Mr. Buster 

Mr. Buster was living at a local mobile home park and a friend from work was feeding him, but couldn't take him in because her other cats would fight with him.  That worked out OK for Mr. Buster until they shut down the mobile home park and hauled away all the mobile homes and my friend had to bring Mr. Buster to the local shelter because she didn't want to leave him there with no food.  Well, Mr. Buster was about eight years old at that time and when they took him to the shelter and shaved his butt, neutered him, trimmed his nails and filed his teeth, he was pretty pissed off.  So when people would go to see him, he would scratch them and bite them and he kept ending up in quarantine and then the cycle would start all over.  My friend from work told me about him and pleaded with me to take him in.  I didn't have any cats and my beloved dog had just died, so I asked my husband if he wanted to take Mr. Buster in.  I told my husband that Buster was all his, because I wanted nothing to do with this huge scratching and biting cat.  So my husband being the animal lover that he is said yes and Buster came to stay.  We try not to make jokes about how he was trailer trash - ha ha  And Mr. Buster has come a long way from his cranky beginnings.  Now he is a big old fat guy and is content to lay around and enjoy the good life.
