I hope that all of you kind humans are having a good day. As you know by now, I don’t just share stories about diabetic cats, but of all special needs cats.
I am sure you are all familiar with Lucky‘s story. He continues to recover, and he is not yet ready for a furever home.
But because of your kindness, the wonderful humans at the Homeless Animals Rescue Team were also able to rescue another cat at the shelter where they found Lucky. And this sweet girl, named Fortune, is now ready for a furever home.
Fortune had been at the shelter even longer than poor Lucky. She, too, had a wound on her neck, and she also was stuck in the shelter until HART rescued her.
She is now completely healed and ready for a furever home. And she’s a very smart and loving cat. She managed to pull up the heating vent in the room where she was kept and went for a stroll through the ducts!
Fortune doesn’t get overstimulated anymore, but she will let you know when her limits are reached. She is a total lap cat and a purring machine.
But there is one thing that makes her a special needs cat like me. And while we are both grey cats, she is not a diabetic cat. Her condition is worse than mine. Fortune is FIV positive.
You may think that because of this disease, Fortune cannot go to a home with other cats. That’s not necessarily true, as FIV can only be spread through deep wounds and scuffles between cats in a home do not usually result in these.
If you are interested in adopting this wonderful girl who just needs a special human to open their heart to a special needs cat, please submit an application to HART.
As a diabetic cat, I am a special needs cat. I promise you that my fellow special needs cat Fortune will be a loving addition to your home.
What better way to celebrate adopt a shelter cat month than adopting Fortune or another special needs cat?
