Merlin’s condition deteriorated rapidly yesterday, and he passed away right before the vet had any chance to treat him earlier today. He was very fine last week when I brought him to the vet to get him vaccinated. He was really sweet, adorable and affectionate, and I’m really heartbroken over this sudden loss. I’m really depressed right now.
With me now owning a black cat, and Halloween coming, I urge people to keep their black cats safe inside your home for the coming months, heck all year long even better. There are sick people out there who might abduct them and torture them.
When I was a child, on my way to home from school for lunch, I found the corpse of a black cat. I thought the cat had been hit by the truck and went flying and landed at the back of the truck. I still cannot forget the expression of the cat which was pure terror, pain and torment. I was shocked and ran to home to tell my mother about it. My mother did not speak to me on this matter and hid the truth from me because she thought I was too young to handle it. But like I said, I never forgot it so I was talking to her about it some years ago, and she told me that the cat in fact had been tortured, killed then placed there. Cops talked to people in the neighbourhood to try to catch whoever was behind it.
In order words, it’s real, it happens, sick people or bored teenagers target black cats, and it might be yours next. I never let my cat go outdoors so mine is safe so be careful with yours.
Earlier today I went to the local pet shop and bought a kitten. That kitten is my first kitten, all my previous cats were adults cats ditched by their owners. I wanted a kitten for once. It’s a male kitten and he’s black. He’s really sweet and affectionate. There were other kittens at the pet shop, but he alone came to me, purred when I took him, and climbed on me; after that when the girl there tried to take him he did not want to leave me. I felt he was the right cat for me so I choose him. I’ve decided to call him Merlin, I think it suits him. I shall post pictures later.
