Arrival Story:
My Merlin & I arrived at my mountain cabin one March day in 1999, Morganna came out from beneath the long and low front porch. I thought she must be one of the ferals, so I tried to chase her away. Her response was to curl around my ankle and meow. Ok, ok. I wouldn't let her in, not knowing her vaccination status; I felt sorry for her when I saw her one day, lying in a sunny spot on the deck. I folded up a blanket and put it down for her; next time I looked, she was sleeping on the wood pile. ********************************** ******* I took her to the vet for vaccinations - and he discovered that she was still wearing stitches from having been spayed! It must have been done weeks and weeks before, as all the fur had grown back. So Morganna joined our family. She'd sleep in the house, but she adored being outside and hunting.**********************One day, months later, I let her out, telling her that, when she'd been trying to win her way into my heart and my home, she'd bring me little gifts of critters she'd caught - but she hadn't done that in a long, long time. She disappeared into the forest; a while later, she showed up at the back screen door, deposited a dead rodent, gave me a pointed look, and disappeared again! LOL*******************I started calling her my "mighty huntress."************************

Perhaps Morganna, having been spayed, had also had her vaccinations, but not knowing her age or her background, I had no choice but to have her vaccinated. That may have been a mistake. She eventually developed a tumor at the vaccination site, and it was diagnosed as VAS - Vaccination-Associated Sarcoma. She had had a surgery to have the tumor biopsied; when it came back positive, she underwent a second surgery to removed the tumor -along with most of her hind leg. A year later, the tumor was back, so we were referred to a veterinary surgeon. He removed the remaining bone in her leg; I took her back regularly for checkups, and she remained "clean" - for almost 2 years. And then it was back. The surgeon said he could remove more tissue, including part of her pelvis, but I elected to stop; I kept her as comfortable as I could, but 2 months later, I knew it was time. She made a peaceful and gentle transition to Rainbow Bridge. I will be anxious to see her with four legs again; she was missing about the last third of her tail when she adopted me, so I've not yet seen her with an entire tail! Because of her attitude, I referred to her as "my Braveheart."
