Pet of the Month, June 2023, Negan, Buerk!

By June 1, 2023 Pet of the Month

Congratulations to our June 2023 Pet of the Month, Negan Buerk!

Hi, my name is Negan.  My mom told me I am named after a charismatic villain from “The Walking Dead” graphic novels/TV show.  She tells me that my name suits me perfectly, as I can be quite affectionate and charming when I want to be, but I am also a bit shady and will smack any dog that steps out of line.   I am a dashing 7-year-old black cat with a small white blaze on my chest and a couple of white toes.

I had a bit of a rough start to my life.  A kind lady saw me get thrown out of a car window when I was only 6 weeks old.  This kind lady brought me to a local vet clinic in the sandhills of North Carolina.  As luck would have it this is where I met my future family, as my human mom worked at this vet hospital.  It was discovered that I had a broken hind leg and would need surgery to repair it.  My mom fixed me right up.  I was such a trooper and was good as new in no time.

I now call Florida home, with my human mom, my human brother, and 2 rather daft dogs.  I am an expert bug hunter, and I enjoy chattering at the birds that frequent our yard.  I love laying on warm freshly folded laundry, assisting mom with jigsaw puzzles, and I make sure my mom feeds me right on time (I start gently reminding her that food is needed in about 1 hour – and I will remind her every 2 minutes after that).  Patience is overrated in my opinion.

I take full advantage of my ink-black color, as I will sneak attack my dog siblings with a well-timed smack.  I am far superior to them, but they are family, and I will provide them with affectionate head boops when they are not feeling well or if we are somewhere a little scary (TOAH vets and staff are amazing, but it is a little scary to my canine sibling – so I make sure they are ok whenever we have to visit).  Thank you TOAH staff for nominating me as Pet of the Month – I humbly accept this great honor.
