Hi Lynne,

It sounds like the poor guy really needs some medical attention. Is he tame? 
Where do you live? Is there any way you can keep him in a pen or something and 
just get him tested for Felv? If he is positive he could spread it to all the 
other cats in the neighborhood. If you consider getting him tested I can help 
you find a rescue that will take him. If he is not positive than you can keep 
him if you want.

If those people have any other animals I think you should call the Humane 
Society and have their animals removed.

Hi Lynne,

There is a reason you're seeing this little fellow, and I'm sure it's to help.  
But give yourself a little time to breath and make the decision on how to 
handle the situation, especially considering what you went through with BooBoo. 
 It doesn't sound like you need to make the decision right away.  Give it a 
little time and it will come to you.

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 con
fused right now.
