Because diabetic cats like me are special needs cats, I love to share happy news about other special needs felines. And I have some good stories to share with you today.
I told you the story about Darky, a cat who has not one, but two challenges that make the ear sticks and needles I endure as a diabetic cat look easy. Darky has not just FIV, but he also has feline leukemia. Eventually, these diseases will take his life. But while he is alive, he has a lot of love to give, and a human that cares for him a lot.
Darky is very special to his human caretaker because she has a 16 year old daughter that has autism. The bond between these two special needs beings is very strong, and that is another reason why his human is so devoted to him. And that devotion is paying off, as Darky’s treatment is making him feel much better. He still needs your healing thoughts, but it is looking much better for him.
Another happy story comes from my furiends at the Homeless Animals Rescue Team of Maine and Diabetic Cats in Need. One of my fellow diabetic cats, Melody, now has a furever home. My good furiends at Paws and Effect shared this picture of her in her new home. She got on one of those noisy metal tubes and went from Maine to Minnesota, and she is settling in nicely with her new human in her furever home. As my good furiends Siouxsie, Thomas, and Bella at Paws and Effect say, sugar kitties can find good furever homes and I am very happy that Melody has one.
You also know that I am a big fan of Tenth Life Cats in St. Louis. And they have another happy story to share of a feline they took in. Twinkie was found in a car lot, dehydrated, hungry, and suffering from a really nasty eye infection. But thanks to the kind humans at Tenth Life, she is doing much better. This picture says it all.
I hope these happy stories make you feel better today!
