Caturday Buzz The Fuzz UPDATE!

About four months back we told ya about Buzz The Fuzz– he of the new haircut and new beginning. Now we get an update on Buzz-Meister’s progress!

“I just wanted to share some recent photos and let you know that he is doing great! He has an official website now, opened an Etsy store (all the profits from the store goes to Columbia-Greene Humane Society, the place that rescued him.)”

Knew I Shoulda Made A Left Turn At Albuquerque

An Albuquerque, New Mexico kitteh named Spice went missing on Halloween…and ended up in MAINE. Check out this story!

Let’s Roll, Eddie!

IMG_1563aAndy W. wrote in to tell us about his motorcycle sidekick, Eddie. “Here’s a couple shots of our Beagle/Jack Russell mix shelter dog Eddie. We’ve had him for about a year and a half and this spring I decided to see if I could get him to ride in the motorcycle sidecar. After working him up to it slowly, he’s now a total pro at it. And as you can see by his posing, he knows he is just so DAMN smoove when he’s rollin’ with his dad.”

“It was tough to get him to wear his Doggles…took me about 3 weeks of treating him constantly while he had them on. Now he understands that’s part of the deal. If we ride, he’s gotta wear ’em. Also, he’s attached to the sidecar in two different spots on his nylon walking harness, one on the bottom of the sidecar and one on the roll hoop. He can move around freely but the attachments are adjusted so there’s no way he can jump out or be thrown out of the sidecar.”

Snorgle This!
