    Cat Angel Network: Meet Buddy, a sweet guy looking for a family

    Hi! My name is Buddy, and I’m looking for my new home. I was found living outside in a mobile home park in Honey Brook. I walked right up to my rescuer, and she could tell instantly that I was a sweet guy. She asked around and could not find an owner, so she fed me until the colder weather started to set in. Once she knew that I had nowhere else to go, she took me inside her home and now is hoping to find a family who will love me as much as she does.

    Ladies, I know what you’re thinking... And to answer your question... Yes, I am single! I just ended a relationship of four years, so my heart is still a little broken, but sometimes you just need to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and jump back into the dating world. Please allow me to tell you some more about myself. For starters, I’m a mature adult around seven years of age. I hate to admit it, but I’m a little bit of the jealous type; a home where it’s...
