From Donna of Southfield, MI

I had two kitties, but one died suddenly, leaving my other kitty very lonesome while I was at work all day. Since she was about 7 years old, I didn't want a kitten, so I started looking for an older cat on As soon as I saw Buddy's picture, I made an appointment to go see him. He was at a vet's office. They told me a lady found him almost frozen on a cold February day and brought him in. He was very sick, and they nursed him back to health. The assistant at the office even took him home with her to get him used to household noises, other cats, dogs, etc. For the first 6 months to a year after bringing him home, he was fairly non-social, but continued to get healthier and happier. I got married last August, and he and my new husband are now best of friends! He is such a sweetie pie now, playful, and just a wonderful addition to our family, plus a great companion for my older kitty. I love Petfinder!
