Update on Lucky and Bindy

Hello, kind humans.  Today, it is Friday.  Sometimes, that means that my human abandons his diabetic cat and Jacey in the evening after giving me my insulin shot, and comes home clumsier than normal.  And he smells funny, too.  I just don’t understand you humans sometimes.

But I do know that while some of you humans are evil, many of you are very, very kind to special needs cats, whether they are diabetic cats like me or ones with much more difficult challenges.  Today I wanted to share with you what is happening with two cats who are facing very tough recoveries from the bad things evil humans did to them.

Bagheera the Diabetic Cat's Furiend LuckyYou will remember Lucky, I’m sure.  Even though this ginger sweetheart was tortured by an evil human who poured acid on him, he has nothing but love to give.  His wounds are healing nicely, and he has nothing but head bonks, purrs and happy feet to give to the humans who are helping him.  He even wants to get tummy rubs.  Now imagine that.  This poor guy was abused but he wants tummy rubs from humans he doesn’t know very well.

Lucky probably has a number of surgeries to endure as he heals, but the kind humans at the Homeless Animal Rescue Team and Parkway Veterinary Clinic are committed to making sure he gets the care he needs.

I also shared with you Bindy’s story.  She was beaten and lost an eye because an evil human thought she needed to be punished for getting pregnant.  The kind humans at Michigan Cat Rescue took her in, and rushed her to the hospital to be taken care of.  She is doing better.Michigan Cat Rescue is Helping Bindy

While Bindy is not quite to the point where she is eating on her own, she is getting very close.  She is still being syringe fed for now.  And the congestion that Bindy had is clearing up, so that should make her more willing to eat on her own.  The best part is that Bindy has high spirits, is happy, and is starting to purr with her human caretakers!

These are two cats that you kind humans have helped so much.  You have shown so much love for special needs cats, whether they’re diabetic cats like me, or ones who are facing a more difficult road like Bindy and Lucky.

Oh, and please remember that the rescue groups that are helping Lucky and Bindy are staffed by volunteers.  So they may not be able to respond to you as quickly as they would like.  They are focused on helping the cats in their care.  Even if they don’t respond, know that they are being extra kind to their four legged furiends.

Tenth Life Cats Helped Checkers Find a Home

Hello, everyone!  You’ll remember that I wrote about Tenth Life Cats and how they have established a physical presence for their operations.  And of course, my good furiend Lincoln, who is a Tenth Life alumni, was there with his bow ties to check out the facilities.  He gave it his paw of approval.

Tenth Life takes in cats who face difficulties far more than what a diabetic cat must deal with.  So it’s always a challenge for these cats to find a furever home, but Tenth Life doesn’t quit trying.

Today, Tenth Life has a great story to tell of a special needs cat named Checkers.  Checkers was taken from a shelter, and when Tenth Life took her in, she was in bad shape.

Bagheera the Diabetic Cat is Happy Checkers has a home!Some cruel human decided that they would tape Checkers to a board and abandon her in the woods.  Naturally, Checkers was shy around humans, because she was worried that she would be abused again.  And if that wasn’t enough, the poor girl had some health and skin issues as well.

But during her foster care, Checkers warmed up to humans and thrived.  When you meet Checkers today, you’d never believe that she was once wary of humans and had been mistreated.

Well, today, this sweet girl found her furever home.  Her new human says that Checkers is very happy, and running all over the house to explore things.  And she loves belly rubs and is hopping up on her human’s lap and chest. That’s a long way away from a cat who didn’t want to trust humans!Bagheera the Diabetic Cat is Happy Checkers has a home!

Checkers does have food allergies, and she does require gluten free, all natural products.  But when she eats that food, she is fine.

As a diabetic cat, I always love it when I get to share the story of a special needs cat like me finding humans who want to take them in.  We may require additional care and attention, but we will reward you with lots of love!

Say Hello to Lucky’s Fellow Rescue

Good morning, everyone.  I’ve shared the story about Lucky – A Survivor Kitty.  He is a brave cat who makes the challenges I face as a diabetic cat look like nothing.  In case you haven’t seen what I’ve written about Lucky, he was tortured by an evil human who dumped acid on his neck, rescued by the Homeless Animal Rescue Team, and now is recovering nicely.

Lucky is still at what they call the spa, and his wounds are heBagheera the Diabetic Cat sends healing thoughts to Luckyaling.  There is no word on when he will be released, but he is where he needs to be in order to heal and he is being well taken care of.

But the people at HART didn’t stop with Lucky.  When they went to the shelter to get Lucky, they noticed that there was another poor cat with a neck injury.  The injury to this cat, who they called Fortune, was nowhere near as bad as Lucky’s.  But poor Fortune had to endure being in the shelter for ten full days.

Bagheera the Diabetic Cat Introduces you to FortuneFortune has a tipped ear.  The shelter interpreted this as meaning she had an owner, and thus, state law required her to be kept in the shelter for ten days.  That’s a long time for a any animal, especially a scared cat, to be in pain.

When the kind humans at HART went to get Lucky, they knew they couldn’t allow this poor girl to suffer there.  So they took Fortune with them as well.  Fortune is a very sweet and loving cat, but she gets overstimulated from all the love and affection her foster human gives her.  As you can imagine, she is very happy that she survived whatever gave her that wound and that she is with an organization that will make sure she finds a good furever home.

Fortune doesn’t know whether her future will include being with Lucky.  But there’s one thing for sure.  Because of the Lucky’s influence, she managed to get out of the shelter.  And so every one of you kind humans who helped with Lucky, whether it was by donating to HART, sharing his story, or just sending healing thoughts, didn’t just save Lucky.

You helped save Fortune.

She sends you purrs and head bonks and this diabetic cat sends you the same for allowing him to be part of it.
