In Memory of Buddii ~ 2007-2014

Postby TomBobBlender » Sun Nov 02, 2014 9:59 pm

Buddy “Buddii” Blender, a New York resident, died on November 2nd, 2014 in his sleep due to complications of his health at his home in New York state. He was the pet of TomBobBlender.

Born in November 2007, he became the first ferret to not bite his owner during his lifetime, thus earning him the name ‘Buddy’. He is survived by his owner, TomBob Blender, and his millions of fellow streamers who knew him from the internet video streaming services, Ustream and JustinTV/Twitch. He was well-respected in the community for his seemingly unlimited hours or sleeping and his visual appearances known as “BuddiiCam” where he would live his life as any ferret would, eating, drinking, sleeping and the occasional yawn. He brought smiles and laughs to everyone who knew him. His nickname was later obtained through his integration as the stream mascot and his continuous involvement with Nintendo-related properties, including the popular video gaming system at the time, Wii. He willingly accepted the naming gimmick, and went on to be known as Buddii. He had a short, less-than-24-hour interaction with a female counterpart named “Miia” who, due to her vicious nature, was promptly removed from the scene. From then on, it was Tom and Buddii, better known as “My Buddii and Mii”.

He stayed with TomBob as he went to college where he completed his graduate work in Music Education. After graduating in 2011, TomBob was hired as a music teacher in California state where, unfortunately, ferrets were illegal. Buddii insisted TomBob follow his dreams, as so he did. Parting their ways, Buddii was left in the care of TomBob’s family. Yearly visits in December during Christmas brought the two together to catch up on old times. Though Buddii never married or had children, he will always be TomBob’s babii.

I will miss you Buddii, and I love you very much. :’)

If any of you have any memories of Buddii to share, including any words, videos, images, screenshots or fanart, feel free to share it here. :)

Buddii holds a very special place in my heart, simply for the fact he was the entire reason I actually found Tom's stream, and was the first thing I saw when I joined. I always found it so adorable when he'd stick his nose close to the camera <33

Here are a few videos from the second month of the stream. He didn't like hammocks at the time, so I put in a box with a hole on the side for him to sleep in ... only to have him sleep on TOP of the box. Such is a silly head. To keep him somewhat cozy, I placed a stuffed Mario plushy next to him, and fell right to sleep on the air.

Here's a clip of Buddii from one of the Apartment Tour videos as he takes a quick stroll of his surroundings ~ http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/8411353/highlight/90418

I, uh.. Didn't know who or what Buddii is, when I first joined to the community, or even what animal he is at the time that I didn't know that he is a ferret, but I grew to love the little guy so much, since 2010. When Buddii was 3 to 4 years old. He was such a cutie. But alas, it's a shame that the old bean passed away, since I heard the news about it. I was in tears for like 15 minutes, more or less.

I did made a fan art a long time ago, parodied Mystery Science Theater 3000. Having Tom as either Mike/Joel, pointing to the logo, while buddii was oversize to be like Tom Servo, and a random person who is eating an Oreo, posing as Crow T. Robot. Sadly, the file was gone.. But, I will remember Buddii from heart.

I also remember the stream's 2nd or 3rd anniversary stream, where buddii is being attacked by the Lamb Chop puppet and took it off to space with it. (Off camera, I mean.)

After our stream ended tonight, I saw a message posted by user countdudoo that said "rest in peace buddii! nov 2". I thought about it for a moment, and then looked in the forum, and sure enough, today marks two years since his passing.

I have owned a ferret since moving to California, only because they are currently illegal in this state. In fact, the are perfectly legal in ALL 50 STATES except for California and Hawaii. They remain to be my most favorite animal to have as a pet, and I really wish I could have one today. There has been some progress to legalize ferrets here in California, but as everything else goes in this state, progress is excruciatingly slow.

Thank you, countdudoo, for reminding me of Buddii's life and how much his life meant to so many people on the internet and in our tight-knit community. I really do miss him.
