Discovered in a gutter, Willie was the recent victim of the road. He came to us as a very young stray, & grew to be a wiry, underweight cat. The other cats made a frequent habit of pestering & chasing him off whenever possible. Even the chickens chased him off.
I'm admittedly saddened by my lack interest in the cat when he was alive.
I've submitted a fairly recent picture of Willie, one in which he appears downcast.
I wanted to put forth some sort of tribute for an animal that deserved better. Goodbye, Mr. Willie.
