A Tail of the Street - Buddy, the Blue Point Siamese
One day, a friend of mine found a beautiful blue point Siamese cat on a city street. He looked as though he'd been out on his own for a while, but he was very friendly and obviously ready to be taken home, which is what my friend did.
She fell in love with him and gave him his name, Buddy, because he was such a good pal. However, he didn't get along with her other two cats.
When I first heard about this, I thought, "Oh, the poor kitty. The other two cats are mean to him."
But the truth was just the opposite. He wanted to be "top cat" in the house and was terrorizing the others. So Buddy came to live with us.
All the wonderful things you read about Siamese cats could have been written about him: friendly, social, vocal, affectionate, smart, curious, adventurous ... I could go on and on.
He gets along with everyone including the neighborhood dogs. I even have a photo of Buddy touching noses with a deer!
From street cat to beloved pet and buddy - that's Buddy's tale.

What a lovely happy-ever-after-story!
That's a great photo of Buddy in the cycle carrier. The blue point is one of my favorite Siamese cat colors - I adore their smoky blue-gray coloring and they always seem, to me, to have a slight air of surprise about them.
Very interesting that Buddy is friendly with the local dogs and has touched noses with a deer - my own cat, Bandit, seems to be quite pally with the local foxes, although this does scare me sometimes! He's quite capable of holding his own with them though.
Thank you so much for sharing Buddy's 'tail'.
