Very Happy News About Diabetic Cat Kitty

I love sharing happy stories with you, and today I get to share the wonderful news of my fellow diabetic cat Kitty.  Kitty is a 16 year old calico cat who was in Noblesville, Indiana.  The wonderful humans at the Humane Society for Hamilton County found her a foster home so that she could get a chance to spend the rest of her days at a furever home.  It took a long time, but Kitty reKitty the Diabetic Cat Has a Furever Home!ceived the best present a feline could hope for.

Kitty was adopted on December 3!  She had to travel a long way from her foster home in Indiana, all the way to Texas.  That kind of travel is stressful, and for a diabetic cat, it’s very important to try to keep our stress levels down so that our blood sugar levels can be controlled.

Kitty was sad to leave the foster human who took such good care of her, but she was excited to join her furever family and make furiends with her brofurs Hoosier and Smudge.  It took a while for her to make it to Texas, because the transport was complicated to arrange.  But Kitty arrived in her new furever home yesterday, and she is settling in nicely.

This wonderful story required some very special humans.  First, the humans at the Humane Society for Hamilton County had to give a 16 year old diabetic cat a chance.  It’s difficult for diabetic cats to find homes, and it’s even more difficult for an older diabetic cat to find one.Kitty the Diabetic Cat Noms in Her Furever Home

And a human who wouldn’t pass special needs cats like Kitty or me by when they go to adopt a feline had to adopt her.  Most humans don’t understand that while we need a little extra care, for a human who can give just a little more time and effort, we are wonderful and loving companions.  I am grateful for humans who realize this, and adopt felines like Kitty.


Bagheera (429 Posts)

Bagheera is a wonderful and loving cat who started off his life on the wrong foot. Literally. He is a polydactyl and since breed standard for bengals does not allow polydactylism, he was given to an animal rescue group. His human had just lost a dear feline friend, but he was fascinated by both the bengal breed and the polydactylism. So he flew up to see Bagheera, and fell in love. He took Bagheera home the same day and Bagheera didn't even let out a peep when he went on a noisy loud small airplane. Several years later, Bagheera had to endure another plane ride, but this time, it was on a big airplane. He moved with his human to San Diego. And he was all set to enjoy a life of soaking up the southern California sun but then something else got in the way. Bagheera was diagnosed with diabetes. This meant that he would have to overcome one more challenge. His diabetes is being treated with insulin and a low carb diet. He has gained back all the weight he lost and is the same active, happy, rambunctious cat that he was before his diagnosis. But he wants to help raise awareness of feline diabetes. He wants humans everywhere to realize that while diabetic cats require a little extra care and they cost more to keep healthy, they are loving and playful companions for the right humans!
