Furiends, we felines like to do things that get us in trouble. The human is all too aware of this, because he has three bengal cats that he must handle. I am older now and not quite as rambunctious, but Koji and Jacey make up for it. Whether it is Koji running out the front door and making the human chase him, or Jacey jumping into places she should not, or me taking a swat at the human, we do a lot of things that get us in trouble.
But none of us have ever stuck our heads into a glass jar. And if we did, the human would quickly remove our heads from it. If we needed treatment, off to the white coated humans we would go.
One feline, who Lucky told me about, was not so fortunate. You see, this feline is a feral cat, and he lives in a colony where he does not have human help all the time. Somehow, he managed to get his head trapped in the rim of a glass jar. Many kind humans were horrified when they saw this. They tried to capture and treat this feral cat. However, we felines are smart and nimble. We are very good at escaping you even if you want to help.
This feral cat did exactly that for months. Eventually, kind humans were able to trap him. They rushed him to the white coated humans. The white coated humans immediately sedated him and removed the rim of the glass jar. Then, they neutered him and gave him a rabies shot. After he recovered, the trap, neuter and return volunteers took him back to his colony.
This feral cat did not stick around to give his human rescuers thanks. He probably was angry that he had been taken from his colony and been neutered. Still, I am sure he is happy that he no longer has to wear a glass necklace!
I have shared many stories with you about Michigan Cat Rescue. This organization runs with volunteers only and they do a lot of good for so many felines. One feline they helped, named Fannie, needs a home.
Fannie suffered injuries because of her ordeal, and she lost an eye. After recovering, Fannie got adopted. She was enjoying her home with a kind human, but that human suffered a stroke and left us. Now, Michigan Cat Rescue is looking for a home for her once again.
Fannie is a very sweet and friendly cat. One of the humans at Michigan Cat Rescue said that she is a lap cat and “she likes to sit and look out of a window. She is quiet and gentle and loves to be around people.”
Michigan Cat Rescue hopes that Fannie will find a home soon. This kind feline deserves one after all she has been through. She suffered before finding a good home, and then when she found one, the human who took her in left her. Hopefully, she will find a home where she will be able to live the rest of her life happily.
Can you help Michigan Cat Rescue find Fannie that furever home that she needs and deserves? If you can, please contact them and tell them you want to adopt her. And if you cannot, please share her story. Hopefully, we will be able to find a home for this sweet feline soon. That would make her happy and I would be happy for her, too!
It takes longer for a special needs cat like me to find a home than other cats. I cannot blame any human for this. We require extra attention, and if a human does not feel they can give this to us, it is the smartest and best thing to do to allow someone else to take us home.
That is why a special needs cat named Benny found himself waiting in the office of a white coated human looking for a home. Benny, along with his four feline siblings, lost their human. Kind humans took home the other four felines. But many humans who saw Benny did not feel comfortable taking him home.
You see, Benny is blind and has a condition called hydrocephalus, which is a buildup of fluid in the brain. Poor Benny waited patiently, hoping for someone to tell the white coated humans that they wanted to give him a furever home. That day never came, so the white coated humans contacted cat rescue groups to see if they could help.
One day, the kind humans at Milo’s Sanctuary gave the white coated humans the good news. They were going to take in Benny. And now, Benny is in his Lifetime Care Foster home.
As a special needs cat, Benny requires frequent trips to the humans in white coats. He has to get subcutaneous fluids, because he does not drink on his own. And in some ways, this special needs cat is like me. He needs to get frequent blood tests. But my blood tests can be done at home. Benny needs to go to the white coated humans for his. He also needs to eat special noms.
Benny does not let all of this slow him down. This blind feline jumped on a cat tree all by himself to take a nap!
I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
