Help Diabetic Cat Marlena Find a Home

Furiends, Diabetic Cats in Need shared with me Marlena’s story. I wanted to share it with you so that we can find her a home. Marlena is living with Austin Pets Alive and she is not in any danger, but she wants a home of her own.

Marlena’s humans surrendered her to a shelter when they learned she has diabetes. Austin Pets Alive took her in, and she has adapted to her foster home well. This nine year old girl is gentle and calm, and she enjoys making sure her foster human is doing their work properly. Marlena sits by the catputer and make sure everything is correct.

Marlena’s facial expressions put a smile on her foster human’s face. It takes a while for her to show these expressions, because she takes time to settle in to a new environment. Initially, she will be shy and reserved. But with time and patience, her personality emerges and she becomes a very loving feline. Now that she is used to her foster home, she cuddles with her human and purrs happily.

Because Marlena is an older feline, she is not as active as some other felines. But she does like to play with a catnip toy and she enjoys stretching and scratching up a scratching post. For the most part, she relaxes and enjoys her day. And like most of us felines, she loves it when it is time for noms.

Marlena does not like other felines, but she will tolerate them once she gets to know them. She doesn’t have to be an only pet, but she might be happiest in a home where that is true.

Can you give this sweet diabetic cat a home? If you can, please contact Austin Pets Alive. And if you cannot, please share her story so that someone else can.


Diabetic Cat Becky Looking for A Christmas Home

Diabetic Cats in Need is a group that does so much work for so many of my fellow diabetic cats. They are hoping to find a Christmas home for a diabetic cat located in Denver. This feline is safe in an animal welfare facility. But it is always better if a feline has a home of their own.

Diabetic Cat Becky Needs a Home

This feline, who is named Becky, was adopted from Maxfund. She arrived there after her human got very sick and could not take care of her anymore. Then, a kind human adopted her. But things did not work out in her new home, so she returned to Maxfund.

The white coated humans checked Becky when she returned, and they learned she is a diabetic cat. They put her on insulin for a while, but soon they were able to control her blood sugar levels with a special diet. No more twice daily insulin shots for her!

Becky is a loving cat. She gets along well with small humans and other cats. The humans at Maxfund are not sure how she will do with canines. Right now, she is not happy at the Maxfund facility, and she is irritable, stressed and depressed. But once she goes to a furever home that will keep her, her happy and loving personality will come right out.

Furiends, Becky deserves to enjoy the best Christmas gift that any adoptable feline can get — a furever home. She has endured a lot, and she needs a home where she will be loved. Once she finds that home, furiends, Becky will blossom into a loving feline.

Can you give my fellow diabetic cat a home for Christmas? Or for the new year? If you can, please contact Maxfund. And if you cannot, please share Becky’s story so that we can find her a home for the holidays. It will make her very happy, furiends!

Diabetic Cat Winston Needs a Home

Hello, furiends. I like helping the kind humans at Diabetic Cats in Need find homes for my fellow felines who are fighting diabetes. Today, I will share Winston’s story with you. He lives in Montgomery, Alabama.

Winston is being cared for by some white coated humans, but we do not want him to live in a cage forever. This feline lived with a human who knew he could not properly care for Winston’s diabetes. Because of this, they took Winston to the white coated humans.

At just a year, Winston is young for a feline battling diabetes. Usually, diabetic cats like me get diagnosed when we are much older. Winston’s previous life could be the reason why. You see, when Winston’s human found him in July, he only weighed three pounds! He was nothing but skin and bones, furiends!

Winston’s human helped him gain weight, but then noticed he was peeing a lot. The white coated humans examined him and discovered Winston is a diabetic cat. First, they tried to control his diabetes with diet alone. That did not work well, and Winston started getting insulin shots.

Winston loves humans, and he doesn’t mind other cats. He did try to dominate the other feline in the home. And he hates it when the other feline in the home tries to nom before him. That is not surprising given that he almost starved to death!

Do you have room in your home for Winston? If you do, please contact the humans in white coats who are caring for him. And if you cannot, please share his story so that others can.

Another way you can help diabetic cats like me is to contribute to Diabetic Cats in Need. They need many green paper things, and a kind human has offered to match donations. Can you help do this? Even if you can only spare a few green paper things, it will help! Please help this wonderful organization that helps so many of my fellow diabetic cats like Winston!
