In memory of my Buster Boy

Thank you for visiting my memorial page in memory of my sweet boy, Buster.  When he was just 2 yrs old, he suffered a broken leg.  The injury happened when he ran down our stairs & slid into the corner of a desk, fracturing his leg right near his hip joint.  As luck would have it, a specialist was visiting our vet at the time we brought Buster in with this injury.  This specialist was the only one who ever attempted to repair such an injury and he performed it on a dog that was hit by a car with success.  He was Buster's only chance at surviving this injury, prior to this vet successfully performing this operation, animals were put to sleep.  Thankfully our boy came through the surgery with flying colors and even purred upon seeing us in recovery.  We were overjoyed to have our furbaby back and soon he was romping around the house like nothing ever happened to him.  Then about a year later we came upon a torn wrapper to one of a family member's hypertension pills.  The pill was gone and we knew Buster had to have swallowed it.  So we raced him into the vet and just as we placed him on the examining table, he started to crash!  The vet immediately gave him an injection into his heart and safed him from dying.  Thankfully Buster pretty much never got into any more problems.  Buster's life started out as an orphan, living in the alley.  I found him wandering around our back yard one day and immediately picked him up and brought him inside.  He was infested with fleas and his little eyes were crusted over.  I bathed him and fed him and took him to the vet for his first check up.  At first we named him "lil bit" because he was so small, he barely covered the palm of my hand, that's how tiny he was.  But soon our lil bit grew up and that name just didn't fit, so Buster Boy was his permanent name and he took to it immediately.  He was born the spring of 1999 and sadly we lost our boy this past spring 2016 when he was diagnosed with severe feline pleural disease.  We never heard about this illness prior to our boy contracting it and it was a shock to us all that he even had this happen since he was never outside.  Our vet explained that Buster could've had an underlaying problem that caused this and we wouldn't have known.  It broke our hearts to lose our Buster boy.  He brought us so much joy throughout his life.  And we miss him every day.  We rescued him from the alley's of our neighborhood and there are so many homeless felines throughout our country and world.  That is why I started this memorial in Buster's memory.
