Cats are remarkable that way. We were lucky enough to share our home with a feral cat, Carlos, for eight years, before he died. He could not really be domesticated, but he loved us and let us feed him. He was hit by a car in the first two years we had him -- his hip crushed. Another cat walked him all the way home -- we think it was pretty far -- with Carlos dragging his legs behind him. We saw them coming up the street together in the early morning.
After we got the hip repaired, Carlos was back to his old self, and had quite a following of cat friends. When he died, we had three or four cats haunting our yard for days. One, the black cat who walked him home after the accident, still comes around, several years later. Very moving.
