You have heard me talk about my girlfriend Jacey, who puts up with my antics. And while I have to put up with the torture humans inflict on diabetic cats, she has to put up with me. Well, today, I want you to meet her. So I am letting her guest blog.
Hi, everyone! Thank you for reading my story. Bagheera was nice enough to let me blog in his place. He is so silly, and I don’t think it’s the insulin he gets because he is a diabetic cat.
I came into Bagheera’s life in the fall of 2011. The humans who were taking care of me were very nice, and I loved them. But the young human girl who I was bought for went off to boarding school. And the humans that were left just didn’t have enough time to take care of me properly
My current human had recently lost his furiend Pepe, who is the cat Bagheera grew up with and who moved to San Diego with him. So he went looking for another bengal cat in southern California, and he found me.
Animals Rule was the rescue society that placed me. I was never in danger of being abandoned. The human I was with is a veterinarian, and so she took me and my uncle to the clinic she runs. We stayed there, and lots of humans got to see us.
But my human came up, showed the people at Animals Rule that he had a good place for me to live, and decided to take me home with him. I was good. I was quiet all the way from Tustin to San Diego in rush hour. Any of you people who understand Southern California rush hour traffic understand that this is a long drive!
When I got to my new home, my new human put me in the bathroom, with food and water and a litter box. The idea was to slowly introduce me to Bagheera so we wouldn’t fight.
Well, I was having none of that. I am a bengal, after all, and I am very inquisitive and smart. I figured out how to open the door and in the middle of the first night I was in my new place, I escaped.
My new human was so funny. He ran over, worried that Bagheera and I would fight. We didn’t. We just looked at each other warily, and we didn’t growl or hiss at each other. So my new human went back to sleep, and so did we.
That was nearly two years ago. Now Bagheera and I are really close. I like to lick his head, and after he gets his ear sticks, I sometimes lick his ear to make him feel better.
I didn’t like having to leave my old humans, but I do like my new ones and my good furiend Bagheera. Even if he’s a diabetic cat, he’s still a fun one and I love him.
