Diabetic Cats in Need told me about a feline named Wallace who is in urgent need of help. I will share his story with you. Hopefully one of you will be able to help. If you cannot, by sharing his story with as many other feline loving humans as you can, you will still help.
Wallace arrived at a municipal shelter in Ontario, Canada. When he arrived at the Burlington Animal Services facility, the humans in white coats did an exam on him and found out that he is a diabetic cat.
In some shelters, this would have been the end for Wallace. You see, many shelters simply do not have the resources to care for a diabetic cat, and rather than allow the cat to suffer from untreated diabetes, they will end his suffering.
Fortunately for Wallace, this is not one of those shelters. They have started treating him for his diabetes, and he does not have a date where he will be put down. But since this is a municipal facility, that is something that could change very quickly.
Wallace is not as welcoming of new people as Jacey, Koji and me. He is a little shy, but he is friendly enough. Once he gets to know humans, he shows his affection towards them. He is also quieter than Jacey is. Well, pretty much all felines are!
Wallace is a big guy like me, weighing 18 pounds. And the humans in white coats estimate that he is between five and nine years old.
I am hopeful that Wallace can find a home where he does not have to travel a long distance. But if that does not happen, I am sure that Diabetic Cats in Need will work very hard to see to it that he gets to a home where his diabetes will be taken care of.
Please contact Burlington Animal Services if you can provide Wallace with that home. And if you cannot, please share his story. Hopefully someone who can help will see it!
