Hello, everyone. Today I would like to introduce you to Mini Me. He is a diabetic cat who lives with his human and another cat called Shawti. But while his human loves him, she doesn’t have the financial resources to take care of him. So this sweet and loving diabetic cat needs a new home. Can you help?
He is very loved where he is. His human is going to be very sad to let him go. Mini Me is a former stray cat, and his human thinks he is at least part Maine coon. She first saw Mini Me when he was a small kitten, living as an indoor outdoor cat. But then he vanished. Two years later, he reappeared. It was clear from his condition that he was taken in and then abandoned.
Soon after he came back, Mini Me got sick. So he was taken to the vet, and he was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. The human who was taking care of Mini Me tried to treat him, but never took him back to the vet for follow up, so he got sick again. They were going to put him down but the human who now takes care of Mini Me would have none of it and stepped in.
She has been a wonderful human. She isn’t well off financially, but she did what she could with the limited resources she has. Mini Me was taken to the vet, examined again, and put on a different insulin. He’s now doing much better, and is happy and healthy. And it’s painful for his human to let him go, but she feels like he needs someone who has the resources to take care of Mini Me.
Mini Me is a sweet cat who is good with other animals. Rather than fight, he will walk away. And once he gets to know a human, he will stay right next to that human. He doesn’t play too much, but when he does, it’s adorable. And he is a very mellow cat, who loves to be handled for a while. He’s not destructive, so your couch and other things that cats typically scratch are safe.
Mini Me’s human will give whoever adopts him the blood sugar meter, testing strips, insulin, and a harness. She is also willing to teach his new humans how to take his blood sugar and how to administer the insulin.
Mini Me is currently located in Canon City, Colorado. If you are a human who can help, or if you know someone who can, please go to the Facebook page of Mini Me’s current roommate, Shawti the Cat and contact his human there.
