Earl Harris says:
Rocky was homeless and would come around daily looking for food. We began to leave food out for him, and eventually were able to take him inside to live. He then began to show signs of advanced FLV, for which he tested positive and was pronounced by two vets as having a 2 week life expectancy. Extreme love and answered prayers are the only thing I can attribute to him still being my best buddy and loyal friend, 17 months later and counting.
