Rescue Cat Loses His Best Friend But Finds His Family

Rescue cats can range from quite feral (at least at the beginning) to unbelievably affectionate and human centered. Powder was the latter. In fact, in my mind, Powder was always a person. He appeared to have the wisdom, the depth of emotions and the social intelligence of a human.
