Diabetic Cat Callie Looking for a Home

Furiends, Diabetic Cats in Need helps many felines who are battling diabetes. They sometimes share stories about diabetic cats who are looking for homes. And I like to share those stories with you. Hopefully, we can help these felines find homes!

Today, I want to share with you Callie’s story. Callie, or Calligator, is a six year old diabetic cat who lives at Austin Pets Alive. All of us diabetic cats have to be fighters because of our disease. But Callie is even more of one.

Callie’s humans did not know she was diabetic, and she lapsed into a diabetic coma. The white coated humans worked very hard to help her. Because of this, and her fighting spirit, she pulled through. But Callie suffered brain damage because of the coma.

Her brain damage causes Callie to be somewhat unpredictable. Most of us felines will warn you if we are angry and about to bite or swat you. Callie sometimes does this without letting her humans know. But if you can get over this, Callie is a fun cat. She is friendly and likes to hang out with her humans, as long as they give her time to do her own thing when she wants.

You might think this challenge would make it difficult to give Callie her insulin shots. Fortunately, as long as she gets her shots with noms, she is okay and does not fight.

And do not think that because Callie has suffered brain damage, she is not a good feline companion. She needs a little more attention and a little more love and understanding. Callie should also not go to a home with small humans. But for a human who is ready to give her the extra care she needs, she will be a wonderful addition to the family.

Can you give my fellow diabetic cat Callie a home? Please contact Austin Pets Alive. And if you cannot, please share Callie’s story so that she can find a home!

Help Diabetic Cat Marlena Find a Home

Diabetic Cat Marlena Needs a Home

Furiends, Diabetic Cats in Need shared with me Marlena’s story. I wanted to share it with you so that we can find her a home. Marlena is living with Austin Pets Alive and she is not in any danger, but she wants a home of her own.

Marlena’s humans surrendered her to a shelter when they learned she has diabetes. Austin Pets Alive took her in, and she has adapted to her foster home well. This nine year old girl is gentle and calm, and she enjoys making sure her foster human is doing their work properly. Marlena sits by the catputer and make sure everything is correct.

Marlena’s facial expressions put a smile on her foster human’s face. It takes a while for her to show these expressions, because she takes time to settle in to a new environment. Initially, she will be shy and reserved. But with time and patience, her personality emerges and she becomes a very loving feline. Now that she is used to her foster home, she cuddles with her human and purrs happily.

Because Marlena is an older feline, she is not as active as some other felines. But she does like to play with a catnip toy and she enjoys stretching and scratching up a scratching post. For the most part, she relaxes and enjoys her day. And like most of us felines, she loves it when it is time for noms.

Marlena does not like other felines, but she will tolerate them once she gets to know them. She doesn’t have to be an only pet, but she might be happiest in a home where that is true.

Can you give this sweet diabetic cat a home? If you can, please contact Austin Pets Alive. And if you cannot, please share her story so that someone else can.
