It would appear Buddy has been having fun playing in the basement. I’ve been playing Civilization VI for a few hours now, and he came up on the desk for treats.
When he got down again, I noticed the insane amount of foot prints he’d left on the desk. I investigated further, and there’s an entire trail leading from the basement door.
Looks like he’s been playing in the puddle in the basemen, then walking through his cat litter.
