Woman Provides Cat, Her Best Friend, With Lavish Life

BuddyDo you spoil your cat? And if you admit to spoiling your cat, what do you do?

Valerie Maros, a Texas woman, spoils her best friend, her cat Buddy.

To celebrate Buddy’s 16th birthday, she took out a full-page ad in her local newspaper announcing her cat’s special day.

Maros said she has two homes, and both of the homes are actually Buddy’s. She added that he simply allows her to live with him.

This Himalayan mix has ten beds to sleep on between his two homes. He even has a $500 wooden bed in one of the rooms, and above the bed hangs a custom oil painting made especially for this pampered cat.

Maros has a custom photo of her best friend above her bed, and she wears custom designed jewelery with images of Buddy adorned on them.

She said: “He is my life, he makes me feel happy. I just don’t know what I’d do without him.”

The two best friends go to eat at restaurants together, and Maros will order Buddy a shrimp cocktail.

She said she has spent around $30,000 on Buddy, and she does not regret spending a cent of that on her beloved pet.

Maros said her late husband even knew the love between her and Buddy was so strong.

“There were times Michael would tell me: ‘I think you love that cat more than you love me,” she said, ” and it was true, I did.”

    I’m so glad that this cat is well loved and cared for BUT I can’t help but wonder about the good she could do for other cats (and dogs, rabbits, etc) with some of that money.

    This lady LOVES her Buddy. She will be devastated when he passes!

    Catmom5 - That was my initial thought as well. My second throught was, what the heck, its her money, and she probably hasn’t spent more on her cat than a lot of folks spend on a car.

  4. Lynn says:

    And for all anyone knows, she probably donates plenty to animal-related organizations.

  5. Jeanie says:

    The great thing about pets vs. kids is you can spend this kind of money on animals and they’ll never be spoiled! Just imagine if she treated her children like this, they would be entitled little brats!

    What a heart warming story! I can certainly understand why she lavishes her love on this little kitty because I have four of them and do the same thing myself.

    Sad… very sad. This lady needs professional help and some human interaction. When this cat dies she’ll be a mess
