Bagheera The Diabetic Cat's Furiend Jacey

Bagheera The Diabetic Cat's Furiend JaceyHello, everyone.  Today it’s Jacey writing.  Bagheera has been trying to get his blood sugar under control by exercising more, so he can’t come to the computer right now.  It’s good for a diabetic cat to exercise.  He is busy scampering around the apartment, tossing a toy up in the air and then pouncing on it.

But he had some nice stories to tell you this week, and I wanted to share them with you.

First is the story he shared with you about Lucky and Bindy.  You will remember that these two cats were abused in horrible ways by evil humans, but that they have nothing but love to give to the humans at the Homeless Animals Rescue Team and Michigan Cat Rescue who have taken them in.

These two furiends of both Bagheera and mine are doing much better.  Read about their path to recovery because it will make you happy.

I am sure you are familiar with the story of Little Bear.  He was born with severely deformed legs, but his human saw that he had a lot of love to give.  So Little Bear was adopted, and he had to go through grueling surgery to get his legs fixed.  He needs your healing thoughts.  Little Bear is back at home surrounded by people who love him, but he’s still got to heal.

Finally, a story that should make you as happy and playful as I am.  My human has told me that Jacey means happy, and it’s definitely fitting for me.  Right near where I live, the San Diego Humane Society, fire department, and a kind human who owned a building teamed together to rescue a kitten who was trapped inside a building’s walls.  That kitten, who is named Karma, has been adopted.

I want to thank you kind humans for letting me step in for my diabetic cat boyfriend.  Keep reading what he has to share with you, because he’s not just a sugar cat because he’s a diabetic cat.  He’s a sugar cat because he’s sweet!

Little Bear Needs Your Healing Thoughts

When my human first told me I should blog to raise awareness of diabetic cats, I thought that was all I would do.  But then I saw that there were so many special needs cats who needed attention.  I can’t help them all.  But I want to help as many of my fellow special needs felines as I can.

One of my favorite special needs cats is Little Bear.  You may know his story from the Amaze Cats contest, as he was the winner of the contest.  He beat many of my furiends, including Lincoln the formerly quadriplegic cat; Anakin the two legged cat; and Pretzel.

In case you don’t know Little Bear’s story, he was born with severely deformed legs.  As a diabetic cat, I have to deal with ear sticks and insulin shots to treat my condition.  That is nothing compared to what LittleMeet Bagheera the Diabetic Cat's Furiend Little Bear Bear has had to endure.

Little Bear’s hind legs are backwards.  It’s like you took his right foot and put it where his left leg ends, and did the same with his left foot.  But while this presented a challenge, it’s nothing compared to what happened to his front legs.

His front legs were bent in the shape of an L.  It’s like if you humans had arms that were fused in that shape and you were born without an elbow joint.  In order to correct this condition, Little Bear had to endure two surgeries from the veterinarians at Tufts.  In March, Little Bear had the first surgery, and it went well.  He obviously wasn’t very happy, and he Bagheera the Diabetic Cat Wants you to Send Healing Thoughts to Little Bearhad to learn to use the straightened leg, but he recovered and went back for the second surgery.

After the second surgery, things did not go as well.  A few days after returning home, Little Bear stopped eating, and was running a fever of 103.  He went back to Tufts to get an IV, and to be monitored closely.

Little Bear seems to be doing a lot better, and his human is hopeful that he can return home either today or tomorrow.  If you look at this picture of him and his human, you can tell they have a very special bond.

Please send healing thoughts to Little Bear.  He is a tough cat who is dealing with challenges that make the ear sticks and insulin shots a diabetic cat has to endure look like nothing.  He needs your thoughts so he can recover more quickly.
