From the Mum:
Today is Buckwheat's 3rd "Gotcha-versary" and also what we consider his birthday since we don't know the official date. This makes him 8 years old now. Buckwheat came from the SPCA about 7 weeks after losing our first cat William. He brings joy to us everday, with his soulful eyes and dependant nature. The incessant meowing can be a little nerve wracking on a occasion, but he does it because he has to be with someone all the time, he is the least independant of cats and can't handle being by himself, unless he's asleep. He has a way of pleading at me with his eyes, I can't capture it in photographs, but you can tell that he is silently saying "excuse me, I love you, please pet me and give me all of the attention". He is the sweetest of the Sweet Wheats. Happy birthday-versary Buckwheat, I got you a new toy to ignore and you'll get an entire pouch of Bisque for dinner instead of the usual, half.
