Buddy


Buddy is the one with his head stuck in an empty twenty-pound bag of food.  Percy is the cat watching.  Buddy is the youngest animal at Jan's Funny Farm.  He is about two now.  This picture was taken when he was about five months old.  Buddy's very favorite thing is finding food and he is very good at it.  He came to the Funny Farm when he was only 3-4 weeks old and found that the cats were very interesting.  He watched the cats carefully and learned how to climb.  The next thing Jan knew, Buddy was climbing up to the kitchen counter to eat the cat food there.  Jan has had quite a time finding a way to let the cats get to the cat food, but prevent Buddy from getting to it, too.  Buddy is so good at acting like a cat that he is sometimes called the Floppy-Eared Hound Cat.  This incident with Buddy and the food bag happened two years ago, but it was too funny to pass up.  Buddy half-climbed into the empty food bag to get the last crumbs and got stuck.  He was backing up all around the kitchen and the three cats climbed on the bag for a ride.  Jan finally came in and got Buddy out of the bag.

                                        Buddy gave the kitties a ride
                                        On an empty food bag with his head inside.
                                               His head was stuck tight --
                                               An embarrassing plight --
                                       Until Jan came in to salvage his pride.

I have a couple of notes.  My blog has now reached Genius Level in readability and this is my 300th post and 249th limerick.

Hi Karen Jo, congratulations on your awards and thanks so much for giving me the Thinking Blogger one, I'm thrilled to bits! However, Blogger is having a hissy fit and won't upload it, so I hope you don't mind, I've suggested to my nominees that they pick it up from your blog. Dr. Tweety won't need to though coz he's also received it from squillions of others!

Buddy sounds a real character! xxx
