My worst fears have come true. Morgan has cancer in his bladder.

Darn! Rats!


The clinics ultrasound machine couldn't show enough detail to tell how bad it is, so I'm taking him to Kootenai Animal Hospital on Monday for one more ultrasound. They're machine is much better and can give us more details. Like, how long he has left.

There is medication he can take to make the remainder of his life more comfortable. I'll get more details on that on Monday.

Right now, he is beside me, wrapped in a blanket, all warm and snuggly, sleeping peacefully.

My heart aches.


  1. I'm so, so sorry.

  2. Well that just sucks. I am so sorry. It's very hard to see the little guys not feeling good.

  3. I am so sorry. My heart aches with you.

  4. Oh no! That is so sad, poor Morgan. I hope the medication helps to make him more comfortable soon.

  5. I am so, so very sorry for your loss. Poor Morgan. I lost a much loved cat to the same kind of cancer and I feel your heartache.
