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.
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.
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.
Good morning, furiends. Today, I will share with you the story of Quinn Quantum. My good furiends at Diabetic Cats in Need told me about him, and I wanted to let you know about him.
Quinn is a ten year old feline living with Austin Pets Alive. And the contrast between his white whiskers and black fur really stands out, furiends. It is the first thing many humans notice about him.
He is a calm cat. If the other felines in his foster home get too rambunctious, Quinn will find another room to watch them from. And he will return to the clowder when things calm down. But he does not get angry about it. He just prefers to not participate.
Quinn likes to talk, and he has a unique voice. He gets very curious about what his humans are doing, and will ask about it. He is a feline who enjoys watching his humans and everything they do. Quinn also loves to sit next to his humans and snuggle with them.
You might think a calm and mellow feline like Quinn would not like small humans. But he does! And he especially enjoys spending time with his humans while relaxing on his fleece blanket.
Like me, Quinn needs to be on nom on wet food only given twice a day. And he receives an insulin shot after each meal. But other than that, Quinn is just like any other cat.
Can you give my fellow diabetic cat a home? If you can, please email Austin Pets Alive and let them know. If not, please share his story so that someone can give him the home he’s looking for.
You all know that many humans do not adopt senior cats. And senior cats with special needs are even more difficult get adopted. This is why I am so happy that a senior feline with diabetes got adopted near me.
Buddy Love was staying at San Diego Humane Society. This 12 year old black and white cat was a mellow and calm feline. But he loved people, and loved to purr when kind humans pet him. And he enjoyed hopping in human’s laps.
The kind humans at San Diego Humane Society knew it would take longer to adopt him out. And they also knew that because he was battling diabetes, it would be even more challenging to find a home for him. That did not stop them from trying to find Buddy Love a home. Until he found one, the staff and volunteers made sure Buddy Love enjoyed his time with them.
Buddy Love spent 200 days in the shelter, patiently waiting for the right human to come along. Finally, someone did. These humans fell in love with Buddy Love after watching his video.
But they were not sure they could adopt him like the small humans in the video suggested. It took them a couple of months before they decided that they were going to take him home.
And this is a perfect home for him. You see, these humans already have dealt with a pet fighting diabetes. They give their diabetic canine insulin shots so giving them to a feline is not a problem. Plus, they have two other senior felines, and know how to take care of us when we start to slow down.
You can see that the human who adopted Buddy Love is very happy. I am happy, too, that a senior diabetic cat like him found a good home.
