Above is a picture of Harley, chilling on our deck. We have cats of our own and I always leave food on the deck for them and any of the strays in the neighborhood that are hungry. One day, a tiny black and white cat showed up to eat and, when I went out on the deck to fill the bowls, he ran to the next yard. I could see his skin through the little bit of fur he still had. The next day, when he showed up again, I invited him in and he became ours. We took him to the vet's and found out he had FELV, as most of the strays in the area have. He was such a sweet cat that it didn't matter to us, but we had our own cats tested periodically for it and they never got it.
Harley lived with us for 10 years and passed away last year when the virus kicked in. I was devastated at his death and still think of him often.
