   Hi! My name is Buttons! I was born in the wild. I lived on the streets in an apartment complex. The nice people there fed me everyday though. Even though I had to deal with the rain, snow, etc. at least I had food to eat. There was one man who kept trying to catch me from the time I was a little one. He never could. It was such fun making him think he was going to finally get me! I finally decided to let him get a little closer. I let him pet me then I ran away. It felt kind of good having someone pet me. So I let him do it again. Then he tried to pick me up! I did not like that! I got away from him.

      One very cold winter night he came out to feed me and he grabbed me and picked me up. I could not get away. He took me into his apartment. It was really warm in there, but I was scared. He made me stay in until morning. The next night he brought me in again. I started spending the nights in his apartment when it was raining or cold. He got me some toys to play with. He had some other cats for me to play with. I became friends with them. They told me how nice it was to live there.

      One morning when he came to get me to put me back outside I ran into the back room and hid. I did not want to go back outside! That was over eight years ago. He has not tried to put me back out again. I am very happy with my new brothers and sisters and my new Dad!
