Kevin's Corner

Hi Kevin,

I was looking over past issues at your new website. I was touched by the edition dedicated to the cat, Stormy. I too lost a cat to Feline Leukemia. I was wondering if you ever heard from the family and how they were recovering from their loss?

Thank you,
Lucy.

Hi to you Lucy,

As a matter off fact we have been in touch with Stormy's family and they have sent us some good news. Morgan, their 10 year old daughter was so devastated by the loss of Stormy she decided to raise money for an animal charity.  Morgan wanted to help other animals as a tribute to her beloved kitty. The charity she chose was PALS.  It was a local charity and donated free food for about 180 pets in the area and surrounding counties.  The animals that receive the food belong to families where the people have disabilities or life threatening illnesses.  They also help the elderly people that must live on fixed incomes with their pet needs.

She had a tree put up at the animal hospital in Cornelius. This was done with the blessing of Stormy's vet, DR, Kathy Halada. It was called Stormy's Angel Tree

Nancy Hamond, Morgan's mother set up a website for her project. http://hometown.aol.com/morey1991/myhomepage/memorial.html  

The happy news is Morgan raised over 2,000 dollars for PALS.

One person wrote to Morgan and said, "Stormy was a lucky to have someone as sweet as you to love her during her short life, and now the lives of doggies and kitties will be better because of you and Stormy."

AIP is always happy to hear such wonderful stories of generosity, and compassion. We hope this story will help you feel better about your loss. I am sorry to hear you too lost a beloved companion to Feline Leukemia.

Let's all remember to have our pets checked for this disease and inoculated to help prevent its occurrence.

Thanks for writing,
Kevin
