Senior Feral Cat Mason with his Tiny Feline Furiends

Senior Feral Cat Meets Tiny Felines

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!

 

 


Bagheera (1282 Posts)

Bagheera is a wonderful and loving cat who started off his life on the wrong foot. Literally. He is a polydactyl and since breed standard for bengals does not allow polydactylism, he was given to an animal rescue group. His human had just lost a dear feline friend, but he was fascinated by both the bengal breed and the polydactylism. So he flew up to see Bagheera, and fell in love. He took Bagheera home the same day and Bagheera didn't even let out a peep when he went on a noisy loud small airplane. Several years later, Bagheera had to endure another plane ride, but this time, it was on a big airplane. He moved with his human to San Diego. And he was all set to enjoy a life of soaking up the southern California sun but then something else got in the way. Bagheera was diagnosed with diabetes. This meant that he would have to overcome one more challenge. His diabetes is being treated with insulin and a low carb diet. He has gained back all the weight he lost and is the same active, happy, rambunctious cat that he was before his diagnosis. But he wants to help raise awareness of feline diabetes. He wants humans everywhere to realize that while diabetic cats require a little extra care and they cost more to keep healthy, they are loving and playful companions for the right humans!
