Jacey Wishes you a Happy Furiday!

Hello, everypawdy.  It’s Jacey here today.  I decided to give my furiend Bagheera the Diabetic Cat the day off.

He’s been a busy cat, writing nice stories for you and sharing them with you.  So I decided to give him a break.

First, I have some good news to share with you.  Do you remember how Bagheera told you about how he was going to try to help Simba the 75 percent African jungle cat get an enclosure?  He told you that we were going to make our human give money based on how many of you donated, shared Simba‘s story, or liked the story. Bagheera the Diabetic Cat's Human Will Donate for Simba's Enclosure

Well, 28 of you liked the story.  Another two of you shared it.  And four of you kind humans went above and beyond and donated money for Simba’s enclosure.

That means my human will donate $54 for Simba’s enclosure.  When he does things like this, Bagheera and I think he is worth keeping around, even though he tells me not to hop on the balcony rail and to stop opening drawers and cabinets.

Bagheera, our human, and I all agree that a gorgeous creature like Simba deserves to have that enclosure built and we will do what we can to make that happen.

Jacey's Blogging for Bagheera the Diabetic CatWe’ve had some heart warming stories to share with you this week, and I hope you enjoyed them.  We have been able to show you stories of human kindness towards felines like us.  Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that most of you humans are kind and caring creatures.

And it is likely that we will have more news on our good furiends Lucky and Bindy soon.  We really enjoy sharing stories like that with you because it makes our little feline hearts beat quicker.  That’s good for me, but it’s even better for a diabetic cat like Bagheera.

Have a good Furiday and thanks for reading the stories Bagheera and I share with you!

Let’s Help Simba Get His Enclosure

I hope you kind humans are having a good day.  I have talked a lot about Simba, who is a 75 percent African jungle cat.  His story is a very sad one, and it will make this diabetic cat beat very quickly if we can help make it a happy one.  That’s good for my diabetes, you know.

Bagheera the Diabetic Cat wants you to Help SimbaSimba’s human recently went over the rainbow bridge and now Simba does not have the human he bonded to.  So he needs help.  He needs an enclosure so he can live the rest of his life happily.

Before I tell you what I am going to make my human do to help with this, I wanted to let you learn more about the African jungle cat.  It is the largest member of the Felis species, which includes cats like me.  Simba is 30 pounds, which is not big for a jungle cat.  They can get up to 35 pounds!

Even though they are called jungle cats, they are not found in the rainforest.  You can find cats like Simba throughout Africa and Asia, from Egypt in the west to southeastern Asia.

One of the most distinctive things about jungle cats is that they have equally sized claws on both their front and rear legs.  For cats like me, our rear claws are longer and stronger than our front ones, which means we have to back down when we climb a tree.  Simba’s ancestors don’t have to do this.  They can walk up and down Bagheera the Diabetic Cat has a cat mummy for you to look ata tree and face forward.

In Egypt, jungle cats were found among the cat mummies, which means that humans have lived with them since ancient times.  It’s likely that jungle cats were used to keep the rodent population under control.

I am sure you think that jungle cats like Simba are fascinating creatures, and that you want to make Simba’s story a happy one.  Well, his current human at Spots and Stripes needs money to build an enclosure for him.  And I want to help with that, so I got my human to agree to do something.

For every like, my human will donate $1 to Spots and Stripes.  If you share Simba’s story, he will donate $2.  And if you donate to help build Simba’s enclosure, he will donate $5.  He will do this up to $100.

This diabetic cat really hopes you will show Simba some of the love you have shown me.

African Jungle Cat Hybrid Simba Needs Help

Remember how I told you the story of Simba, who is 75 percent African jungle cat?  He still needs our help.  Diabetic cats like me require a little extra attention, but we are domestic cats and we do not act like early generation hybrids like Simba do.

The proof of this occurred when Spots and Stripes Bengal Cat Rescue, where Simba is receiving lots of love, had a surprise visit due to completely false reports of animal neglect.  Because of the report, the local animal control officials had to visit Spots and Stripes and examine all of the animals.

Bagheera the Diabetic Cat Says Leave Exotics in the Zoo!The result was Simba acting like this, even after the human he didn’t know left.  And this was towards the human who is taking care of him, who he had started to trust.  He was in full defensive mode, refusing to eat, and extremely upset.

Spots and Stripes is seeking donations to pay for an enclosure for Simba.  For a few more days, any donations for the enclosure will be matched.  The enclosure will cost $1,850, and it will allow Simba to have a home where he can enjoy himself and where Spots and Stripes can continue to work with him.

Now, you may think, an enclosure?  How cruel for such a beautiful creature.  That’s not true.  The enclosure is really the only way that Simba will be able to live with Spots and Stripes because he is so much larger than the other cats that he can do some serious damage.  I am a large cat.  One of the reasons I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat is because I dropped down to 12 pounds.  I am now up to 18 pounds.  But Simba dwarfs even me! Bagheera the Diabetic Cat is Glad to See Simba in a Better Mood

This is Simba in a better mood.  Would you like to see him in this mood all the time?  You can help do this by donating for his enclosure.  Whether it’s $1, $10, or $100, your donation will help Simba have a happier life.

Can you show Simba just a little of the love you’ve shown this diabetic cat?  Please donate if you can.  If you can’t donate, please share this so that others can.
