“Faye loves attention and likes when you scratch right above her nubby tail,” said the humans running the facility. And even though she was overweight, Faye loves playing with toys and chasing a laser pointer around the room. All she needed was a human to commit to playing with her so that she would lose weight.
Jacksonville Humane Society shared Faye’s story through social media, hoping someone would come to help her. And soon, right when they opened, a family with a small human showed up. They wanted to see Faye.
At first, Faye was shy and hid from the humans. But a small human came up to Faye and told her she would be okay. Faye quickly warmed up to the small human. They became furiends fast. Soon, Faye was on the way to her new home!
Her humans put Faye on a special diet and they are controlling the amount of noms she gets. They are also making sure she gets lots of exercise. These humans have committed to making sure Faye gets to a healthy weight.
And Faye is very grateful to these humans. She started snuggling up to her small human friend the very same day she arrived in her new 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.
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.
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!
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.
