You all know that many humans do not adopt senior cats. And senior cats with special needs are even more difficult get adopted. This is why I am so happy that a senior feline with diabetes got adopted near me.
Buddy Love was staying at San Diego Humane Society. This 12 year old black and white cat was a mellow and calm feline. But he loved people, and loved to purr when kind humans pet him. And he enjoyed hopping in human’s laps.
The kind humans at San Diego Humane Society knew it would take longer to adopt him out. And they also knew that because he was battling diabetes, it would be even more challenging to find a home for him. That did not stop them from trying to find Buddy Love a home. Until he found one, the staff and volunteers made sure Buddy Love enjoyed his time with them.
Buddy Love spent 200 days in the shelter, patiently waiting for the right human to come along. Finally, someone did. These humans fell in love with Buddy Love after watching his video.
But they were not sure they could adopt him like the small humans in the video suggested. It took them a couple of months before they decided that they were going to take him home.
And this is a perfect home for him. You see, these humans already have dealt with a pet fighting diabetes. They give their diabetic canine insulin shots so giving them to a feline is not a problem. Plus, they have two other senior felines, and know how to take care of us when we start to slow down.
You can see that the human who adopted Buddy Love is very happy. I am happy, too, that a senior diabetic cat like him found a good home.
