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.
Hi, everyone. I hope you are enjoying your day. Today is Sunday, so my human just got back from yoga class and he told me he did several cat poses. Jacey and I just looked at him and thought, silly human, you will never be as flexible as us so don’t even try. For example, this is an easy pose for all felines, even diabetic cats like me. But for humans it is not so easy. We are flattered that our human is trying to copy us, but we are also amused at how he tries so hard to gain flexibility but he’s still nowhere near what we felines can do!
Now isn’t that great news for your Sunday? And how kind is Helping Hands to not only give DCIN $1,500 in credit, but to hold a drawing for another $1,000 credit and to give all of the organizations that participated in the contest $75?
Jacey and I give them four paws up, and I think you humans should give them all a big hand. Their generosity will help many organizations take care of four legged creatures like me who need some help.
Speaking of DCIN, remember, they have many wonderful diabetic cats who need new homes. It is a little more challenging to take care of one of these great felines, but if you are willing to open your heart and home to them, I am sure DCIN would love to hear from you. What better way to celebrate adopt a shelter cat month than to take in one from DCIN?
I love to share good news with you kind humans, and today, I want to share some good news about one of my favorite organizations, Diabetic Cats In Need. You will remember that DCIN was entered in a contest with 30 other organizations to win $1,500 in credit at a low cost care clinic. The clinic, Helping Hands, specializes in performing high quality and affordable veterinary care to people and pets in the Richmond, Virginia area.
DCIN has taken many of the cats in its care to Helping Hands, and the generosity of the clinic is wonderful to see. Not only do they provide low cost care, but in addition to the $1,500 credit that is the grand prize, they are going to have a drawing among all the other organizations for an additional $1,000 credit!
Well, after two weeks of voting, I have good news to report. It appears that DCIN received the most votes in the contest. So that means they will receive the grand prize from Helping Hands of $1,500 in credit to take care of diabetic cats like me.
You kind humans were a big part of the reason why DCIN won. So give yourselves a big hand. I will give you a happy paw tap and happy meows!
If you want to do more to help diabetic cats, you can adopt one of the cats that DCIN needs to place in homes. I’ve highlighted a few. There’s Chloe, Penelope, Dominique, and Scooter, among many others.
Maybe you can be like the humans who adopted Missy. She’s was spared a death sentence and she is doing very well in her new home.
But make sure you can properly care for a diabetic cat before you take one of these wonderful furiends in. What better way to help DCIN celebrate its win and commemorate adopt a shelter cat month than to take in a sugar cat like me?
Hello, everypawdy! One of my favorite organizations is Diabetic Cats in Need. They help humans who do not have the resources to care for diabetic cats, and they also help by fostering and adopting out cats who are suffering from diabetes. One of my human furiends adopted a diabetic cat named Missy from them. DCIN was able to move Missy all the way from the east coast to California and she is settling in well.
Now they are entered into a contest to win $1,500 in surgical services from Helping Hands, which is a low cost veterinary surgical center in Richmond, Virginia. Several cats from DCIN had their dental treatment done at Helping Hands, and the results were very good. Since DCIN often turns to Helping Hands to treat their cats, having a credit there would go a long way to making sure diabetic cats like me get to stay in their homes or find new ones.
It is very easy to vote. All you have to do is go to the Helping Hands website, scroll down to where the voting takes place, and click on the group you’d like to vote for.
I know I ask you to vote for me in the Modern Cat cover contest every day, and I’ve been doing this for a while now. But unlike that contest, which runs for a few months, this contest only runs for about two weeks.
DCIN is up against many other very worthy groups and they need your help. Many of you kind humans have given money to help Michigan Cat Rescue take care of Bindy, or to help Lucky with his treatment, or to help Simba get his enclosure.
Here is a chance for you to help a charity that is very dear to this diabetic cat’s heart because of who they help. And it won’t cost you any money. But it may save a cat’s life! Please vote and share this link, and vote every day between now and June 16.
