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.
There is a phrase that felines do not want to hear applied to us when we are in a shelter. It is unadoptable. That means that the humans running the animal rescue facility have decided that we just cannot go to a home. It can be because of our behavior, or medical issues, or a combination of both. But what that means is that they may decided to let us go so that another feline who is more adoptable can be saved.
Jessy sat in a cage for three months. Despite this, she showed off her playful and sweet personality. But she was fighting a wound that just would not heal. And the humans at the facility decided this wound made Jessy unadoptable. Fortunately, a kind human saw her and decided to take a chance on Jessy.
Jessy’s foster human took her to a specialized cat clinic. The white coated humans examined her and discovered Jessy had a very rare skin condition. They performed surgery to help Jessy’s wound heal. This helped a lot, but it did not completely heal the wound.
A kind human visited the clinic to give the white coated humans there a gift. When they did this, the white coated humans showed Jessy to this human. And when Jessy rolled over at the visiting human’s feet, they decided they would take her home.
Jessy’s wound took another three months to heal, but her human did not mind treating it. Her human is very happy to have taken in this feline who was once labeled unadoptable. And that makes me very happy, furiends!
Most humans, when they adopt a feline, understand that it is a lifetime commitment. Sure, some humans give up their felines for silly reasons, like one human did with Tiger Tim. But most humans honor their commitment to protect and care for their feline until the end.
They definitely do not do what one evil and cruel human did, which is to dump a one year old feline on the street with just its litter box and a few supplies. That is what happened to one poor feline in New York recently.
Things got even worse for this feline when a street sweeper came by before cat rescue groups could help him. But that did not stop them. These cat rescue organizations went searching for him as soon as they could.
“We are a very close knit community and people [ask for help] if they see an animal distressed or in need of assistance,” said one of the humans who runs the cat rescue group FAT Cats.
Immediately after Nostrand was found, he was taken to the humans in white coats. They scanned for a microchip but he did not have one. It is good, anyway, because the evil humans who dumped him on the street do not deserve to have him.
Nostrand is healthy and FAT Cats will take care of his neutering. After he recovers from that, he will be available for adoption. This time, he will go to a home where the humans understand that he is not a toy to be tossed out in the trash!
The maternal instinct is strong in mother cats. Many of them will sacrifice their lives to protect their tiny felines. The human recently met two kind humans whose canine protected three tiny felines whose mother had been killed. These kind humans took the only tiny feline who needed a home to a cat rescue facility.
But for one mother cat, her maternal instincts took her right to the place where her kittens were abandoned. Fortunately for this mother cat, her tiny felines were abandoned at the Mill Road Vet Clinic.
The next morning, the humans in white coats were greeted by a small grey tabby trying desperately to get inside. They picked up the cat to see what was going on, and they realized it was a nursing mother. Immediately, she was taken to the incubator, and she was very happy to see her kittens.
One of the white coated humans suspects that the mother was abandoned at the clinic along with her tiny felines, but she managed to get out of the box. “She would have been hanging around the clinic working out how to get in for 24 hours,” they said.
