Morgan has passed away. Morgan was the stray cat that has lived at my parent’s house for the last 6 years. I got really attached to Morgan when I moved into my travel trailer 6 months ago. She was the sweetest and nicest cat that just wanted attention. She was very dainty for a stray cat; I would sometimes call her Grace Kelly. She had a scar on her lip that she was self-conscious about and difficultly meowing due to a damaged voice box. It is obvious that before she came to my parents someone mistreated this cat and then abandoned her. It makes me so angry that someone could treat her badly. Despite all that she had been through she was still trusting of people. She would always greet me when I got home late from my inventory job.
Last week I noticed that she had a bloody growth on her butt and it was not doing away. I thought that maybe she was having digestive issues or worms or something. My mom said that she would ask Tammy to take a look at her next time she comes around. Tammy is my step sister and a veterinary tech that works at Veterinary clinic. Then yesterday Doug saw the growth and was concerned and asked Tammy to come by that day. Tammy came by and took Morgan into work with her. They ran some test and it was a cancerous mass. There was nothing they could do so they put her down. It is so sad. She was here one day and gone the next. I had no idea that it was so serious. I hope that she was not in pain. I will miss her so much.
I don’t think I should be around any animals ever. My family jokes that I am a serial cat killer. Last year when I was roommates with Tammy, two of her cats died. To be fair they were both like 15 years old. One had kidney failure and the other one had seizures shortly before he pasted. Her other cat got a tumor on her head but she is still around. Then there is Morgan. She was only about 7 years old. She was perfectly health and then I was around 6 months and she got a cancerous mass on butt and was put down. I loved all of them like they were my own. It is really sad that any animal I get close to died.
