Bagheera is a wonderful and loving cat who started off his life on the wrong foot. Literally. He is a polydactyl and since breed standard for bengals does not allow polydactylism, he was given to an animal rescue group. His human had just lost a dear feline friend, but he was fascinated by both the bengal breed and the polydactylism. So he flew up to see Bagheera, and fell in love. He took Bagheera home the same day and Bagheera didn't even let out a peep when he went on a noisy loud small airplane. Several years later, Bagheera had to endure another plane ride, but this time, it was on a big airplane. He moved with his human to San Diego. And he was all set to enjoy a life of soaking up the southern California sun but then something else got in the way. Bagheera was diagnosed with diabetes. This meant that he would have to overcome one more challenge. His diabetes is being treated with insulin and a low carb diet. He has gained back all the weight he lost and is the same active, happy, rambunctious cat that he was before his diagnosis. But he wants to help raise awareness of feline diabetes. He wants humans everywhere to realize that while diabetic cats require a little extra care and they cost more to keep healthy, they are loving and playful companions for the right humans!

Diabetic Cat Geoffrey Needs a Home

Because I am a diabetic cat, I watch what Diabetic Cats in Need does. And right now, I know they are looking for a home for a feline with diabetes.

They cannot care for Geoffrey and a kind human is paying for a pet sitter to give him the insulin he needs. But this cannot continue for long, and we need to help Read more [...]

May 21 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, kind humans. It is time for you to tell me about my blood sugar readings. Before I do that, I will tell you about something funny that Koji did that made both me and the human laugh. Both Koji and I like to lick the human's plate when he is done nomming. Normally, this does not cause any problems. The human does not care, because he is done nomming. We tell him that we are helping him by putting our enzymes on the plate to help break down the leftover food. And, we remind him, when Read more [...]

Fleas on Felines

Furiends, one of the things that many humans think is that if their feline is indoor only, they cannot get fleas. Unfortunately, this is not true. Do not forget, you humans go outside, and sometimes, a flea will get on you! While they do not like you humans as much as they like us felines, they may come inside the home with you. And then when that flea gets on us, it can create problems. For felines like me and Koji, who go on the balcony, there is another way fleas can get to us. Fleas can hop Read more [...]
