When we felines get too heavy, it is very bad for us. Obese cats are at risk for the same diseases obese humans are. One of the things overweight felines can get is diabetes. You do not want your felines to have to contend with what I do, furiends!
Faye, a sweet and kind feline, weighed 24 pounds when she was surrendered to the Jacksonville Humane Society. Her human could no longer take care of her properly, and wanted her to go to a home where she could get the care she needed. Jacksonville Humane Society made very clear to potential adopters that Faye needed to lose weight.
“Faye loves attention and likes when you scratch right above her nubby tail,” said the humans running the facility. And even though she was overweight, Faye loves playing with toys and chasing a laser pointer around the room. All she needed was a human to commit to playing with her so that she would lose weight.
Jacksonville Humane Society shared Faye’s story through social media, hoping someone would come to help her. And soon, right when they opened, a family with a small human showed up. They wanted to see Faye.
At first, Faye was shy and hid from the humans. But a small human came up to Faye and told her she would be okay. Faye quickly warmed up to the small human. They became furiends fast. Soon, Faye was on the way to her new home!
Her humans put Faye on a special diet and they are controlling the amount of noms she gets. They are also making sure she gets lots of exercise. These humans have committed to making sure Faye gets to a healthy weight.
And Faye is very grateful to these humans. She started snuggling up to her small human friend the very same day she arrived in her new home.
