~ Morgan, Monty and Matrix ~
Four years ago, Morgan welcomed Monty into her life. Then, a few months later, she adopted Matrix. Since then, they have become a family and have brought endless joy into each other’s lives.
In February 2019, Morgan met Monty. He was a shy, but adorable, python. Immediately, Morgan felt they had a connection and knew that Monty had found his forever home. About six months later, they both welcomed a second python into their home, Matrix. Matrix’s first impression was a bit different to Monty’s in she was bold, brave and eager to get to know her new family.
Having Monty and Matrix has had a huge impact on Morgan. No matter what may be happening in her life, she knows she will always have her snakey friends. Through the Covid-19 pandemic, several family illnesses, and more, Monty and Matrix were right there, by Morgan’s side. As well as this, they have taught their human so much patience and understanding. However, one of the most important things they have taught her is that when they shed their skin, that change can be difficult but is worth it.
Because of how much Monty and Matrix have impacted her, Morgan is passionate about spreading awareness about snakes and how sweet they actually are. Through the Instagram page she started for them, she shares many photos and videos that educate others on what living with snakes is like. From posting videos of Monty and Matrix eating, resting and just their day-to-day lives, Morgan loves being able to share them with the world and bring a bit of joy to someone else’s day.
One example of Matrix brightening Morgan’s day was when she was doing laundry. While folding everything from the dryer, Morgan noticed a sock started to move on its own and start to float! Upon further inspection, she realised Matrix had found her way over to the laundry pile and decided to help by bringing the sock a bit closer to her human.
Something that Morgan, Monty and Matrix enjoy is simply being able to spend time together. Whenever she returns home from work or visiting a family member in hospital, she immediately goes to check on Monty and Matrix’s enclosure. If they’re awake, she loves to invite them out and watch TV or play a video game together (obviously while Morgan and her boyfriend play a game, Monty and Matrix are happily exploring the living room!).
Every day is full of endless joy and unconditional love, simply because Morgan, Monty and Matrix have one another. They have greatly changed each other’s lives for the better.
