I lost my friend Fuzzy today. He was a stray that my husband and I were caring for. He had fe-luk and succumbed to it very quickly. The devastating thing is that he used to be someone's pet. We have a number of people who live in my area who get cats, get tired of them and dump them out. Fuzzy was one of these cats. Now, I don't know when he was exposed to the virus but the idea that he might still be alive, healthy and full of love if his former owners had been more thoughtful and caring breaks my heart. If you are thinking of getting a pet, please make it a lifetime commitment. Fuzzy's was far, far too short.
