Girl Adopts Heaviest Cat In Shelter

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.

Anakin’s Sisfur Is Improving

My fellow feline Anakin impresses me all the time. He was born without hind legs but he does not let this slow him down. He is full of love and life, and he shows it to his humans every day. Recently, his humans took in a tiny feline. They named her Arya, and she was sick.

Anakin’s humans took her to the white coated humans, and they treated her medical conditions. I am not surprised that Arya had to battle a bunch of medical conditions. Street cats often get sick because they must live in bad conditions.

Now, thanks to the care that Anakin’s human gave her, Arya is doing much better. She hasn’t had any incidents of diarrhea in a week. And she gained quite a lot of weight. Furiends, when we felines are sick, we often lose weight. Arya gaining weight is a good sign.

This tiny feline is still fighting a urinary tract infection, which means that her human must continue the antibiotic treatment. But even there, her situation is improving. She needs to endure this treatment for just a little longer. And then, furiends, that infection will be gone.

The white coated humans gave Anakin’s human good news about her. They took blood from her, and the results were good news. Arya does not have FIV, blood parasites, or toxoplasmosis. For a cat on the streets to avoid these diseases is good news!

Now, furiends, this does not mean that Arya is completely healthy. She still has a slight fever and some eye discharge. But the white coated humans think that this is because of a kitten virus that her immune system will fight off on her own.

Even with this, furiends, Arya is doing much better than when Anakin’s human first started taking care of her. I am glad that she is getting the help she needs and that it is working!

Tiny Feline Gets Helped During Storm

Furiends, I am sure that you know about the horrible flooding that is taking place in much of the Gulf Coast region in the United States. Many humans were forced to leave their homes, and countless felines and canines are suffering, too. I know that many humans are working hard to help these animals.

One tiny feline took matters in to her own paws, furiends. I am glad she did this. She likely would have been hurt if she did not.

This tiny feline walked right up to a human’s door, and when that human opened the door, they strolled into the home. Then they went into the human’s bedroom and went hiding under the bed.┬áThis kind of thing is a little unusual, but it is not unheard of. But this tiny feline did it just before Hurricane Harvey made landfall.

The human put up lost cat signs because they thought the tiny feline might already have a home. After a few days, when nobody responded, they said “I guess I have a cat now.”

Harvey, as this feline has been named, had no problem winning over the human in the home. Things did not go as well with the canine. Harvey growled and hissed at the canine, and the canine responded by barking. But after a few days, things settled down. Now, Harvey and the canine get along well.

As soon as things settle down after the storm, the human who rescued Harvey will get her chipped. Then the white coated humans will examine Harvey to make sure she is healthy.

Furiends, Harvey chose the right home to walk into. We often say that we felines choose our humans as much as you choose us. And this tortie sure seems to have done exactly that. I am glad she is safe and happy. I only home the canine in the home spares her the sloppy wet tongue!
