Buddy was our first cat. We picked him up the week after we got married. He is almost 17 years old now and in failing health. He still seems to be happy and not in pain, but is quite frail. And now I’m wondering if he is senile also. Tonight I walked around the corner and saw his butt sticking out of the litter box. And he was peeing on the floor! He was just finishing up, turned around and walked out of the litter box. He looked down at the puddle on the floor, then looked up to me as if to say: “Hmmm…sucks to be you.” Then with a twitch of his tail he walked off. The nerve!
