Same pose Buddy had when I found him

Same pose Buddy had when I found him Is he a  perfectly colored Tuxedo Cat or what? I just like this pose

I found Buddy abandoned by some neighbors in my apartment building after they had been evicted. (They were thoroughly loathsome people, and the fact they abandoned Buddy like this just proves it even more)

It was the day before thanksgiving 2007, and it had been snowing all afternoon. Buddy was crouched just barely below a step on the stairs leading to the building lower level. I just saw his 2 ears when I stepped into the apartment building entrance. He was obviously very scared and put up virtually no resistance when I picked him up and brought him to my apartment.

Little did I know how quickly this would all change.

Buddy was an UNEUTERED male cat in the midst of his sexual prime. I left him alone in my apartment to run to the grocery store to get him some food and basic cat supplies. I was gone for MAYBE 45 minutes. By the time I got back Buddy had "Marked" my clean laundry and was terrorizing a mouse in my closet. He was also letting out the most ear shattering yowel of sexual frustration I have ever heard.

That's how he got his name, because I remember looking at him and saying: "I hear ya Buddy, but neither of us getting laid anytime soon...sorry"


Is he a perfectly colored Tuxedo Cat or what?



I just like this pose

Not so boring Buddy
by: Jean in Tennessee

I got some good chuckles from your story of Buddy. I'm so glad you were there in his time of abandonment and need! He's a beautiful cat! I hope you have had him neutered so that he will not have to go through the frustrating times any more and you won't have to deal with the aftermath of his frustrations! :>)

I too really like the pose where he is standing in the doorway looking up at the camera.

Hi Kevin,

A pretty good story, indeed. I had a good laugh. Poor Buddy. Sexually active cats can get pretty wild when kept indoors. I've never had this experience. But when I was little one of our cats wrecked havoc in our house when he reached his "puberty". We had a big house and he had access to the garden. He would also get out into the neighbors' yards. Sometimes he would disappear for days at a time.

So is Buddy neutered now, or does he still suffer from this affliction?

Thanks for sharing Buddy's story. I love the pictures!
