Diabetic Cat Geoffrey Needs a Home

Because I am a diabetic cat, I watch what Diabetic Cats in Need does. And right now, I know they are looking for a home for a feline with diabetes. His name is Geoffrey, and he needs to find a home fast.

Poor Geoffrey is going through a lot right now. He likely is going to lose his human, because they are sick with a brain tumor. They cannot care for Geoffrey and a kind human is paying for a pet sitter to give him the insulin he needs. But this cannot continue for long, and we need to help Diabetic Cats in Need find Geoffrey a home.

Geoffrey is about ten years old, and he lives in a home with his half brother Spooky. They are in San Pablo, California. These two felines have never lived with any other animals. They are both very friendly, loving, and sweet. And they have impeccable litter box habits.

In addition to Geoffrey’s diabetes, he has other medical conditions. He had a couple of incidents of feline asthma, and has to use non-clay litter because of this. And, he has dealt with crystals in his urine before, so he has to be on a low ash diet.

These medical conditions mean that it will be more difficult to find a home for this diabetic cat. But he deserves one, and I hope that we can help him find one. If you can take Geoffrey and Spooky in, please contact his human’s friend, who is taking care of him. And if you cannot, please share his story so we can find him a home.

Another thing you can do to help diabetic cats like me is to contribute to Diabetic Cats in Need. Their Critical Care Fund can use some green paper things. Please become a contributor if you can!

Cats of Melbourne Turns to Humor To Adopt Out Cat

You humans can be silly sometimes. One example is how some of you are reluctant to adopt black cats. I do not know why this is true. I think that house panthers are great additions to the right home. But for some reason, there are many humans who do not want a black cat.

One cat rescue group in Melbourne, Australia, addressed this situation with humor. They want to get a feline named Mr. Biggles adopted, and they decided to use a humorous biography of this feline to do it.

They described this house panther as “an utter, utter, utter bastard” who is also a dictator and who will not accept not getting his way. They continued by saying “Mr. Biggles is a despot and dictator, he will let you know he is not happy, which is often because things are often just not up to his high standards. Mr Biggles likes his cuddles on his terms, and will sit in your lap when he decides it’s time. If the stroking is not up to his standards, he will nip you.”

Why did Cats of Melbourne do this? Because they decided that Mr. Biggles wasn’t for everyone. He needs a certain type of human to take him in, and the cat rescue group wants to make sure Mr. Biggles goes to a home with that kind of human.

Now, do not think that Mr. Biggles is not enjoying himself. His foster human says that he’s doing well, but that he needs a home of his own. And this human decided that it would be best to use humor to get his point across.

The profile for Mr. Biggles quickly rocketed to the most shared profile for Cats of Melbourne. However, despite all the sharing, he still needs a furever home. Hopefully, it does and Mr. Biggles goes home soon. And hopefully, you humans will realize that black cats are not bad luck, too!

Two Senior Bengal Cats Have a Home

Furiends, you know that it can be tough to find a good home for bengal cats like me, Jacey, and Koji. We are active, athletic, and intelligent felines and if humans do not give us the mental and physical stimulation we need, we will find it on our own. Sometimes, this means that their houses get turned upside down!

And many humans do not want two cats. On top of that, many humans do not want older cats. So when the human told me that he was taking care of two 15 year old bengal cats, I thought he would be helping them for a long time.

I worried that these bengal cats, named Gizmo and Iris, would end up here. We would have five felines in our home and that would be too many for the human. Can you imagine five active bengal cats in a one bedroom apartment? It would be chaos!

The human knew this, too. And that is why he worked hard to find a home for these two senior bengals. Now, they have a good home. A kind human has agreed to take in these two bengal cats and give them a good home.

This human is very committed to making sure Gizmo and Iris have a home they will enjoy. They went to buy toys, a cat tree, and other things to help make them happy. And the human is going to go to their home to help them build everything.

Now, the human is very happy they are going home, but he is also going to miss them. You see, Gizmo and Iris loved to climb on him and meow and purr. They would hop on his back, sit there, and make biscuits. Sometimes, the human had to get help if he wanted to move!

But even though the human loves these two felines and they love him, he knows it is better for them to go to a home of their own. And now, Gizmo and Iris will get a home of their own to enjoy the rest of their days together. This news makes me very happy, furiends!
