You know I love to share stories of diabetic cats like me being helped by humans. I am very happy to share a story that was brought to my attention by the humans at Diabetic Cats in Need. I did not see the story in enough time to help, but fortunately, I did not have to. My fellow diabetic cat, who was abandoned, found a home!
It all started when Shadow, who a human in a white coat estimated was about seven years old, wandered into the life of a human named Maria. He was with her for about a week, and it was clear he was abandoned because he had taken the trip to the humans in white coats to have his boy parts taken away. By the way, humans, you tell us it is for our own good, but we do not like it, and we remember it. My human thinks I sometimes accidentally land where his are and I’ll let him think that.
Shadow suffered from the same condition as Tate. If diabetic cats do not get treated, we get very skinny and bad things happen. In Shadow’s case, the human in the white coat said it had gotten to the point where treatment needed to start immediately or it would be more humane to euthanize Shadow. He was given until yesterday to find a home.
Maria would have loved to have helped Shadow, but the place she lives would not allow her to have any more cats. So she turned to social media and shared Shadow’s story on the Diabetic Cats in Need Facebook page. Many kind humans offered to help. There were three serious adoption offers in just one day, and Shadow went to the human who was closest to him.
According to his new human, Shadow is fitting in very well, and is doing all sorts of cute things with the other felines in the house. You can go see what is happening in Shadow’s life on the Facebook page for him and his feline furiends.
It always makes me happy when kind humans help with my fellow diabetic cats. Shadow’s story is especially wonderful because it happened so quickly. But don’t forget, Diabetic Cats in Need has lots of felines who do need help.
