Ferocious Monster, Octoberish 1994 – January 13, 2013
Morgan was my longest constant companion, accompanying me from North Carolina to New Mexico to Pennsylvania. He outlasted Ghost and Grendel: there before either, and after both. He was with me longer than Nick, even.
But eventually the body wears out, the medicine stops working so well, it’s cruel to try to make the cat stay longer. The vet thought they could hydrate him, give him different meds, get me a month or so with my cat, or at least a few days so I could see him again after my trip.
They were wrong.
Nick took Morgan his beloved gingersnaps and held him.
I’ll head home Tuesday, to an emptier house.
