Rescue Stories: Buddy - A Scared Street Cat Found His Happy Family

We’re excited to share a rescue story with you today that’s very special to us. Buddy is one of our best friends. His mom, Jenna, is very good friends with Mommy, and we followed Buddy’s story from the very beginning. He definitely has a “Happy Ever After” ending. Without further ado, meet our friend, Buddy!


When I moved into my apartment in Houston during the summer of 2010, I discovered there were many strays and a group of feral cats in the complex. Being a cat lover, I set up a feeding station on my fenced in front porch, and I also fed the ferals in a few different areas around the complex.

A Look Back at 2018 for Lola The Rescued Cat

Now that 2018 has come to a close, it’s time to reflect on another year in our lives. ( I had planned on having this post completed a few days ago, but never quite got around to finishing it.)  It’s hard to believe that I have now been blogging for four years!  When I look back at my first posts (and cringe), it’s amazing to me how much the blog has grown and improved because of how much I have learned along the way.
