Some Buddy Loves You
Buddy Lou is a gorgeous, older gent who came to the ASPCA after his pet parent passed away. At 10 years old, this tender Tabby was a perfect match for McKenna Moreau of Manhattan. We recently caught up with the new pet mom and her furry fella to see how Buddy Lou's enjoying his new home.
ASPCA: When did you first meet Buddy Lou?
McKenna: Buddy Lou was the last cat I met when I visited the ASPCA in January. All of the cats were adorable in their own way, but I knew immediately that Lou was the one.
ASPCA: What won you over?
McKenna: I fell in love with his piercing green eyes, silky coat and playful demeanor. When he rolled over and showed me his belly, I knew it was time to bring him home!
ASPCA: How has Buddy Lou settled into his new home?
McKenna: It took about three days for Lou to get settled into his new home. Now, he dominates the space! I like to say that it's his apartment—I'm just living in it.
ASPCA: Does he have any funny, eccentric, or endearing habits?
McKenna: Lou sleeps in the weirdest positions. I can't imagine he's comfortable when he splays himself belly-up across my lap, but he'd lie there for hours if he could!
ASPCA: What's the best thing about adopting a pet?
McKenna: When I get home from work, I don't think about the stresses of the day or the list of to-dos piling up. I'm completely in the moment and ready to translate Buddy Lou's meows into a meal, a scratch on the head, or a little exercise.
ASPCA: What do you love most about Buddy Lou?
McKenna: He's such a positive guy—I like to think he makes me a better person!
