This is a tribute to my male cat, Buddy. Gone now for 2.5 years. It has taken me until now to write about him, as at the time, of course, I was very sad, but I had also lost my partner of 12 years. I realise now what a real treasure my boys were. Especially, Buddy. He protected the property with such zealous determination that eventually it got the better of him, winning most fights with other tom cats, that he died of cancer - a feline lymphoma lump that developed near his neck. I put it down to a series of bites. He was a little tiger at times, and often came out worse than his opponent.
