Feline and Canine Become Best Furiends

Many humans say that felines and canines do not get along. Humans even have a phrase, fighting like cats and dogs. But furiends, many of us felines and canines get along very well.

Meet Coco and Chico. Coco was suffering from mange when she was in a shelter. But as much as this bothered him, he was in better shape than his canine furiend Chico. A cruel human had put rubber bands on Chico’s mouth and they were so tight that they had to be surgically removed.

Coco and Chico Are Good Furiends

While they were in the shelter, these two became close. And Coco became Chico’s protector. Two kind humans came in to the shelter looking for a dog, and they met Chico. But then they saw that Coco was protecting him, and they decided “we can’t separate them.”

Soon, both Coco and Chico were on their way to their new home. And their humans loved having them both. “We’ve had the most beautiful moments with them” since the four legged family members came home, one of the humans said. “We haven’t laughed so much in the entire year.”

These two became furiends during very difficult circumstances. And now, their friendship will continue in their new home. So do not believe humans who tell you felines and canines cannot get along!

Two Bengals In St. Louis Need a Home

I know that many humans decide they cannot keep their felines for many reasons. Sometimes, these reasons are silly. They complain about how we felines leave too much fur on the furniture, or other things like that. But sometimes, the reason they must give up their felines is a valid one.

Jacey, for example, did not get the attention she needed when the human who took care of her went to boarding school. The human who purchased her did their best, but they simply could not give her the attention she needed. And Jacey, being a smart bengal, managed to find a way to entertain herself. She escaped from the house, furiends, and climbed onto the roof a lot and that is why Jacey’s former humans put her up for adoption. The human, Koji, and I are all happy they did, but these humans miss and love Jacey.

There are kind humans in St. Louis who are in a similar situation. They moved to St. Louis because they are doing a medical residency. This means they do not have much time to spend at home. And on top of that, they have a tiny human. They are responsible parents, and they do not let their felines near their tiny human unsupervised. That means their two bengal cats, who are named Stella and Izzie, are not happy.

These humans are heartbroken, but they realize they must do what is best for three year old Stella and seven year old Izzie. That means they must send them to a new home and Great Lakes Bengal Rescue is helping with this.

Stella and Izzie are playful, affectionate, and always use their litter box. They do scratch the furniture. But they will stop if they get appropriate things to scratch and the play time they want and need.

Can you help make a sad situation a happy one by helping these felines find a home? If you can, and you live near St. Louis, please contact Great Lakes Bengal Rescue. And if you cannot, please share this story. Hopefully Stella and Izzie find a good home soon.

Diabetic Cat Winona Needs a Home

The kind humans at Diabetic Cats in Need shared Winona’s story. I wanted to make sure you saw it so that you could help her.

One of the white coated humans working for MaxFund in Denver found a feline wandering outside. They thought this feline might be pregnant, so they took her to the MaxFund facility. They found out that the feline was not pregnant, which was good news. After treating the feline and spaying her, they named her Winona.

Soon, the white coated humans learned that Winona is a diabetic cat. They put her on a special diet, and something very good happened, furiends. Winona’s diabetes was able to be controlled with diet only! That means she does not have to endure the ear sticks and insulin shots most diabetic cats deal with.

Diabetic Cat Winona Needs a Home

When Winona arrived in the shelter, she was very friendly and loved interacting with people. But she does not like the noise and activity at the shelter, and it has started to bother her. Now, she gets irritable and will require a kind human who understands that they will have to rebuild trust with her.

Even though Winona is not happy in the shelter, she still likes to play. Wand toys are her favorite. They are a good way for whoever adopts Winona to get her to trust them. And once she does trust a human, she loves getting scratches under her chin.

Winona does not like other felines at the shelter, although the white coated humans think that might change when she gets a home of her own. They do not know how she does around canines. But with a slow introduction, it’s likely she will be okay.

Do you have room in your home for this feline? If you do, please start the application process with MaxFund. And if you cannot, please share Winona’s story so that she can find a home.
