A lot of unwanted cats and dogs get dumped in the country, get hit by cars, 
killed by a coyote or a pack of dogs or shot by hunters who consider them "good 
target practice".  Sometimes they are poisoned as vermin.  My 7 were headed for 
that fate, but someone found them and I ended up with them.  They are not fancy 
breeds, just cats, but the love and companonship they give makes the most 
valuable cats in the world.  Somehow, I don't get the feeling Charles has that 
same love for his Buddy and the poor unloved FELV female that he is so "pissed 
off" because he was ripped off.  Yes, I wold be upset at loosing the $300, but 
I would be even more angry and conserned about the little female and making up 
to her for the treatment she received before.  Guess that is why I will never 
be rich, I care moe about the life than the $$$$$$$.
