I've always referred to police work as
The Best Education on Earth.  Now, I
find myself embarking on another
education.  As I go about building
this website, I'm constantly reminded
of how little I know, and how much
there is to learn, about the animals
who live among us.

Buddy's Pet Place
For the next ten years, Buddy didn't
have a care in the world.  The biggest
decision he had to make was deciding

to eat and drink...not how and
where to find food and water.

The best way to describe Buddy is that
he was perfect in every way.  While
Buddy is irreplaceable, I look forward to
the day when I feel that familiar rub
against my ankle, and I look down to see
another little stray cat in need of a loving
home.  Who knows, he might even ask,
"Hey, don't you recognize me?"  
My inspiration for this site is pictured
above and below.  I found Buddy... no,
that's wrong... Buddy found me  in
2004.  Buddy was sick and starving, but
his personality was 100% intact.  I've
always been an animal lover, but I'd
never been what one would call a cat
person; until, I met Buddy.

Buddy had a rough beginning.  His bones
were crooked, and most of his teeth
never fully developed, but his character,
personality and fearlessness would save
him.  He came out of a neighborhood
where the sound of gunfire is a daily
occurrence.  In fact, it's quite possible
he'd even dodged a few bullets during his
short lifetime.
