Bukatski “Bu”
An adopted Tomcat, Bukatski has been wandering the grounds of the PBA office building for some time, and like his namesake Charles Bukowski, the poet laureate of the downtrodden, he’s a bit of a loner and is somewhat wary of humankind. He has gradually warmed to the idea of being a part of the PBA family, and, like Bukowski, beneath his gruff exterior he’s got a little bluebird in his heart. He roams the office grounds with a glint of mischief in his eyes, always on the prowl for new adventures.
