Little Morgan’s surgeries were scheduled for September 18th, but his right eye started to bleed the evening before and the leaking blood, although not abundant, lasted the entire night.

When we arrived at the vet clinic yesterday, it turned out he actually had a corneal ulcer on that eye, so he was put under general anesthesia and the same surgical procedure which was done on Joca’s injured eye months ago – a third eyelid flap – was performed on Morgan’s right eye as well. The third eyelid has been sewn shut over the eye to bring a healing blood supply to its surface, although it’s questionable whether his vision in this eye even exists, and if it does, whether or not it can be saved.

Even though he appeared normal (despite his problems) before the surgery, he had a hard time enduring the general anesthesia, he began having difficulty breathing and started to wheeze as soon as he was intubated and he nearly died twice on the operating table – luckily, the vet somehow succeeded in resuscitating him both times.

His unskillfully amputated leg and his left eye (which had leaked out already because of an untreated chlamydia infection before I took him in) weren’t even touched as the vets were literally racing against the clock to save his life; Morgan managed to survive the surgery but he’s still in critical condition.

The vet suspects he either has pneumonia, or has been badly beaten or has some serious heart problem and I can’t help wondering if I’ll ever know the truth of what happened to this poor baby in his short life.

For now, he is under antibiotic treatment, he’s being given Longacef and will be getting an X ray as soon as possible because it’s necessary we find out what’s wrong with him before doing anything else.


A huge thank you to all of you who have donated towards his care! Keep this precious baby in your thoughts and let’s hope for the best.
