Help Diabetic Cat Hamilton Find a Home

When I first developed diabetes, the human’s first clue that something was wrong was how much I was peeing. I had to go so often and so much that sometimes, I peed outside of the box. This is not uncommon for diabetic cats.

The human was not happy about this. He made many trips to the pet store in order to get things to clean up my urine. But he did not plan to surrender me to someone to put in a barn like a human did with Hamilton.

Fortunately for Hamilton, a kind human took him in. They planned to take him to a rescue organization. When they were doing this, they learned that Hamilton is a diabetic cat. After learning this, Hamilton’s foster human started treating his diabetes. He gets insulin twice a day, special noms, and soon will get a glucose curve done. And most importantly, Hamilton no longer pees outside of the litter box.

Hamilton lives with his foster human in Lancaster, Massachusetts. He weighs almost 13 pounds, so he is a fairly big feline, although he is not as big as me! And he sleeps in a room by himself. He sometimes hops onto the bed in the room to sleep on the comforter, but Hamilton also sleeps in a cat bed.

This diabetic cat gets along with the other felines in his foster home, as well as a small canine. He lived in a home with small humans, but we do not know how well he liked them.

Diabetic Cats in Need shared Hamilton’s story with me, and now I am sharing it with you. Let’s help my fellow diabetic cat find a home! If you have room in your home for him, please contact his foster human. And if you do not, please share his story so that others can help.

Rescued Feline Helps Human at Work

Many humans decide they want to help a feline. This is good for both the human and the feline. The feline gets a home. And the human gets a furiend that keeps them company and makes them happy. The human also enjoys the health benefits that come with having a feline in their life.

One human decided that they wanted their feline to share these benefits with humans they work with. And that is how Betty Boo ended up working at a human’s hair salon. Betty Boo enjoys being around humans, which makes this a good environment for her. She loves showing affection to humans, even ones she does not know very well.

Going to a hair salon can be something that humans do not like. But Betty Boo does her part to make sure the experience is more enjoyable. She gives lots of cuddles to every human who visits the salon, and she often hops into the lap of the humans in the salon.

Betty will walk over to humans who are waiting for service, and greet them. Sometimes, she will brush up against their legs and meow, asking for attention. Other times, she will hop into their laps and say hello.

Betty’s human set up the salon to make her happy. They put in lots of places for Betty to lounge in around the salon. But she prefers interacting with the humans there. Who needs a perch to sleep on when a human’s lap is available?

She loves to cuddle with humans visiting the salon, and she always makes them smile. Betty especially loves comforting humans getting their hair washed. After all, Betty thinks, it is not fun to get your head fur wet. So she does what she can to help make it more fun.

I am sure many humans look forward to their visit to Betty’s salon because they love seeing her. And she loves seeing them, too!

Diabetic Cat Haze Needs a Home

Diabetic Cats in Need shares stories of felines who need good homes. When I learn about some of these, I share them with you. Today, I am going to share Haze’s story with you.

Haze lives in Fulton, New York, with a kind human. But that human is moving at the end of the month and they cannot take Haze with them. Do not judge this human, furiends. We do not know what is going on in their life. We need to focus on finding Haze a home.

Felines are known for being independent animals, and Haze is like that. But he enjoys spending time with his human. He comes when he is called, and he also will ask for noms like a canine. I do not know if that is a good thing, but it is something his human likes about him.

Speaking of canines, Haze gets along with them. He also gets along with most cats. Sometimes, he gets in arguments with other male cats. But I think with a proper introduction, Haze will get along with any feline. After all, if humans saw me and Koji at the wrong time, they would think we hated each other!

Haze also likes humans. He even likes small humans, although I am sure he will give them a swat if they annoy him. He has been with his human since he was a tiny feline. They found him in a hay bale and gave him noms through a bottle. Now, the tiny feline they found has grown up to be a big feline. His humans suspect he is a Maine coon mix, but they are not sure.

Can we help ease Haze’s human’s mind and find a home for him? If you have room in your home for Haze, please contact his human through Facebook. And if you cannot reach them, let Diabetic Cats in Need know.

Please share Haze’s story if you cannot take him in. Let’s help him find a home!
