Whenever I feel bad about being a diabetic cat, I remind myself that I have always had a human to care for me. I never had to live outside and fend for myself, and I always knew where my noms were coming from. I cannot imagine what it would be like to have to worry about where my noms were coming from, or where to sleep, or whether an evil human was going to hurt me.
Mason can tell us all about that. You see, this senior feline, who is being cared for by Tiny Kittens, lived a long life out on the streets. He has many battle scars to prove it. Mason also suffers from kidney disease. Add to that a badly injured foot, and several abscessed teeth, and poor Mason is not in good shape. To help Mason, Tiny Kittens decided to bring him in so that he could enjoy the rest of his life in comfort.
Mason, of course, is grateful for the help. But he is still quite fierce! He happily plays with wand toys, but as soon as a human tries to reach in to pet him, he will hiss and swat at that human.
But one day, the humans caring for Mason brought in some foster kittens. And soon, Mason let down his guard and showed his soft side. He became good furiends with the tiny felines, and allowed them to snuggle and play with him. Furiends, this feline who is so fierce with humans allows the kittens to cuddle up with him when they sleep!
This, furiends, is proof that even senior feral cats like Mason have a soft side. You humans may not get to see it. It may only be shown to tiny felines who need help. But it is there, in every single cat. And I am glad that Tiny Felines helped Mason show it!
