Info from Licensor: "We got our kitty Buddy right before the pandemic hit the US in March 2020. Buddy is an Aegean cat and about 1.5 years old. He is an adopted feral boy. He was timid when we first got him, but we have a good home with lots of love and a fenced in backyard, so Buddy got to experience the positive side to being outdoors. We started him out slowly and eventually he became this demanding boy that just had to be outside at dawn until dusk, only coming in for food. He eventually learned to demand to come inside and would meow and scratch the door. A day or maybe two before this video happened, Buddy was basking in the sun on the front porch when my husband Sam, turned on our doorbell for live footage, and started talking to Buddy through the camera. Buddy then started meowing to come inside. Sure enough the next time he wanted to come in, he went to the place his favorite person got his attention before. So out of the blue, my husband got a notification on our phone and through our Echo, that 'there’s a person at your front door.' Our window blinds where open and when we looked we didn’t see anyone, so we opened up the ring app to view the video footage, and there was Buddy in all his glory! It’s a capture that is very dear to us that we will soon not forget. Buddy has his very own TikTok page where the video has been shared, and has gone viral at over 200,000 views currently. Buddy has come into our lives and given us true light and meaning, during a very bleak time in world history. We love him very much!"
