Arrival Story:
Morgan was rescued by Save a Sato In Puerto Rico. They thought he had partial vision during his foster care, and I was asked to help find him a new home in the USA. Morgan flew to the USA in February 2006, and was diagnosed with rare kitten diabetes, and rare juvenile bilateral cataracts. Being the only SAS volunteer in CT, we became his permanent foster family.

When Morgan was diagnosed here in the states, his future seemed very dim. The words complicated case, and not a normal life were repeated over and over. But thanks to an incredible Vet - Dr Nero at the Cat Clinic in Danbury, CT who believed in Morgan, he's beaten all the odds against him. He's made amazing progress, he gets stronger and healthier every day. Morgan just had rare cataract surgery at Cornell Veterinary School on January 17, 2007. His eyes are clear, bright and shiny. He is finally almost healed and becoming something we never realised he wasn't - a normal cat. He loves to play with his siblings and his toys now, lounge in the sun, and for the first time in his life watch the birds. Morgan will be 2 years old on 09/08/07 - it's a huge celebration! He's survived all the odds against him, thrived and become an amazing happy cat. Morgan is a true miracle!

A Pirate's Quest To See The World

The Reunion in Heaven

Morgan awakens and looks up to see a beautiful brightly colored Bridge. On the other side he sees his friend Dr. Nero. He goes running over the Bridge. "I am so happy to see you, Dr. Nero. I have missed you. And I was very sick and couldn't find Mom to give me my shot, but I know you can do it"

Dr. Nero scoops up Morgan and whispers in his ear "you don't need your shot any more, Morgan. You don't have diabetes any more". Morgan claps his paws together in excitement.

Suddenly he sees a huge pirate ship in the distance, being manned by his rat friends that he also hasn't seen for a while. And standing by the rail is his beautiful Sarah. "Come on Morgan" she says. "We are off to sail among the stars, seeking treasures and adventures."

Morgan asks Dr. Nero if he will go along with them. "No. I am staying here to greet others that I know when they come to the Bridge. But you can stop and visit me whenever you want".

Morgan says, "What about Mom and Dad, Dr. Nero? Can they come with me?" Dr. Nero explains to Morgan that Mom and Dad are not ready to come with him, but that he can check in on them whenever he wants, from the crow's nest of his ship. And that he can also visit them in their dreams.

Morgan thanks Dr. Nero and scampers up the gangplank of the ship, takes Sarah's paw and gets ready to pull up the ship's anchor.

Gypsy and Amber help to pull up the anchor and off they go, in search of adventure, safe in the knowledge that they are forever loved.


Thanks for the Fun and Friendship

We'd like to say Thank You to all of the special friends we've made on Catster and Dogster. We've all shared so many memories together, celebrations, sickness, journeys to the Bridge, weddings, parties, contests.

You've all been a special part of my celebration of life, and you've been with me for a long time. You've held my paw when I had my eye surgery at Cornell, we played games at night when I would have to stay at the Cat Clinic. I will miss Dr Nero always - he left for heaven last year and now watches over me with his Angel wings.

I hope if you are on Facebook that you will come and visit us on my Morgan's Page: 29958

We do silly contests on there - not as much fun as Men In Pink, Babes In Blue, or Buzzin Into Spring - but maybe one day we could do something like that.

Thank you for all of your gifts, your special friendship, and your love for me and the Pirate Crew.

Love Morgan and His Crew

I would like to announce the newest member of the Pirate Crew!

Last Sunday the Swabie adopted a little gray and white rex dumbo rat from Mainely Rat Rescue in Maine of course! His name is Screwshank. A perfect name for a Bilge Rat!

He is furry sweet and lots of fun! He has already learned to set the Eagles GPS, charge their cell phones, and his new role is to help the Swabie write the listing for Morgan's Beds!

I've cannot put up a picture of him because we don't have Catster Plus anymore But I hope you'll give him a warm Catster Welcome!
