It comes with great sadness to share that Buddy Mondazzi, our warehouse kitty cat and staff member has lost his battle with cancer. We all know that he is still here watching over us because I have seen him several times in just a day.
The uplifting story of his final months:
Sarah and Mike, as you may well know, are our two managers that took Buddy into their own homemade Hospice care. Instead of leaving Buddy overnight in the warehouse Mike and Sarah took Buddy home almost every night and on Sundays when we were closed. He would ride on Mike’s lap in his Honda Element to Mike’s house. When Buddy arrived at Mike’s house, Buddy would jump out of the car and walk into his home away from home. On these rides, Buddy brought many smiles to travelers for Buddy would raise his head off Mike’s lap and send a smile to the car next to them. Sarah and Mike are truly Earth Angels.
Buddy has a HUGE global presence from his Blog and pictures on the Internet. If you Google Buddy Mondazzi, you will see so many pages and pictures of our beloved Buddy. We’ve posted more pictures below…
Buddy hanging out in his Bed (with a pet warmer blanket) in the main office was a sight that now reminds us of our loss but also reminds us of the many memories of our Friend.
Thank you to all for the well wishes during this time,
