Thank you, everyone. Although Zion is extremely feral he'll risk being around humans just to be with Judah. He's a very special being. He really is the color in this photo & it took me awhile to capture just the right shade. Judah will cross any day now & it will be a great loss. Someone flew all the way from Virginia just to adopt him without knowing he was ill & now they've extended their stay to see him through. In Buddhism Bodhisattva's are beings that’ve attained enlightenment but out of love & compassion remain on earth to help others. They can appear as humans, animals, birds - any form of life. I've met a few in my lifetime & Judah certainly is one. He's a being of total love & tenderness & is loved by everyone who knows him. The world will be a lonelier place without him:

Zion is a new feline leukemia positive cat at Best Friends Animal Sancutary. He came to Best Friends after being rescued from a terrible hoarding situation in Pahrump, Nevada. I love him because he's comforting my favorite cat at Best Friends, Judah, as he prepares to leave this world.
