This week’s Pet of the Week winner is Buddy, affectionately nicknamed “Busy Buddy” by his owner Mary Spain. Buddy lives in Illinois with Spain and her husband.

Adopted in 2021, Buddy is full of personality and has some really funny and unusual habits. But what stands out most to its owner is how to use toilet paper.

“His letterbox is in our downstairs bathroom and of course Buddy was always looking in there,” Spain said. Newsweek. “First he was taking the toilet paper off our holder β€” and no, it didn’t matter which side the roll was on β€” and he’d drag the toilet paper into his box.”

Struggling to keep track of the paper as Buddy tried his best to unroll it at any chance he got, they gave him one of their little boxes that kept the toilet paper separate. But he was not happy about it.

“I taped his own roller right on top of his box,” said the owner. “Right, he uses it frequently, using paper to cover his litter box.”

Full of personality, Buddy is a real presence in his owner’s life, and they love him dearly.

“He’s always got something new going on in his head, it’s scary,” Spain laughed. β€œHe also likes to watch westerns and movies with tanks and for some reason watches it carefully. Wuthering Heights More than half an hour.”

These unusual “besties” live in Texas with owner Joseph Bogert and are very curious about each other.

“After the sun goes down, Bubba becomes a chatterbox,” Bogert said. “They love to mingle.”
