Normally, my main focus on my website and secondary blog is my art business and travel, but I feel the need to share this sad news with you. My beloved Magic passed away Thursday October 2, 2014 at 5:00p.m. She was one of the best cats in the world. Below this photo, I share her story and how she came in my life.
Trying To Be A Black Panther.
Me and my now ex-boyfriend adopted Magic and her adoptive brother Shadow from one of our friends. It was love at first site with Magic because she adopted me, instead of me adopting her. Magic would sit on my lap and snuggle with me and rub up against me. Shadow passed away in 2009. Shadow was always the alpha cat. Needed to be the center of attention, no matter what. After Shadow passed, Magic came out of her shell. She would come out and greet people more, and was always out.
When me and my now ex split up, I took Magic and my min-pin Ginger with me and we moved back home with my mom and dad. Mom and dad treated Magic as if she was their own. Dad would feed Magic wet food every morning, and Magic would eat dry food on her counter when she wanted to. Magic and Ginger adapted pretty well to moving back in with my parents, which made me happy because I didn’t know how they would be after the move.
Late July, we noticed that it was hard for Magic to jump up on top of the counter to eat. Early August, Magic wasn’t walking properly. So mom and I took her to the vet’s. When we took her to the vet’s she only weighed six pounds. The vet took some x-rays and the x-rays confirmed that Magic had a tumor wrapped around the lower part of her vertebra and her vertebra was slowly disappearing. Now not being able to walk properly, we had to place her food on the floor and she had plenty of water to drink. Thus, a month went by and Magic became completely paralyzed from the waist down. Mom, dad, and I were still amazed at how she was getting around and was eating and drinking. Sleeping a little more, and gradually slowing down, we noticed that she was becoming more tired.
Thursday October 2, 2014, Magic wasn’t able to walk with her front legs and wasn’t eating. I noticed that her eyes looked a little glassy. Mom noticed that she was starting to fade away and pet her. When I came home from the shop, she had already passed.
Sow’s Ear Studio, The Daily Nub, and A Pretty Presentation Makes will miss, but we all know that she’s in a much better place and no longer suffering.
