My husband and I have agreed that if he continues to hang around here for a bit 
longer my husband is going to put him in the back porch and call this guy we 
know who investigated the owner after we lost Boo.  He has no sympathy for them 
whatsoever and would take the cat away.  If he tests negative for Felv I will 
adopt him if that is an option.  He has been neutered, something they had 
refused to do with Boo and with their female so maybe the field worker did 
impress them somewhat.  Whether he has been vaccinated is another story.  I 
could not subject Snowy to him if he were positive as much as I would love to 
have him.  He isn't the sweetest of cats, the little buggar was rubbing his 
face all over mine then bit me on the hand, quite nastily I might add.  He 
isn't as pretty as BooBoo but still is pretty darn cute.

  It seems to me that this little guy is at your place for a reason.  He 
obviously needs help!  Could you just take him to a vet and have his sores, 
matts, fleas taken care of--and have him tested.  He may be negative.  If it 
were me, I'd just have to know!  

  So glad that Snowball is've done a wonderful job with her.

    Most of you know about my experience with BooBoo, the Felv positive who 
died after owning him for only a month.  It was without a doubt the most tragic 
thing I have ever been through in my life..  Not long after that we got a 
rescued persian Snowball who was neglected and in foster care for 4 months 
because she was so ill.  She has feline herpes virus, not active and is 
absolutely thriving now.

    Tonight my husband calls me out to the front yard, and who is sitting 
there?  BooBoo's son.  I don't know if he is Felv positive or not.  Just as 
BooBoo was, he has sores on his head, matted fur, dirty ears and most likely 
fleas.  I feel like I'm experiencing our tragedy all over again.  If I knew he 
was not positive, I would take him inside right now and those despicable people 
would never see him again.  Odd how he has chosen our house to hang around.  
The owners were warned about taking care of their cats and I know all I have to 
do is call this field worker at the humane society and he will come and pick 
him up.  I just don't know what to do.  I could never subject Snowball to any 
harm, not after what she went through prior to living with us but I don't want 
to see this little guy suffer either.  If this kitty is Felv positive, perhaps 
a rescue would take him.  I simply could not afford the emotional and financial 
devestation we experienced watching BooBoo die.  I'm totally confused right now.
