Hello, everyone. There is an absolutely beautiful diabetic cat located in New Jersey who needs a new home right away. Here is her story.
Mai Thai is a pretty black and white cat who was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of three. She was lucky and went into remission for two years. Unfortunately, in March 2008 was put back on insulin and is currently receiving three units of Lantus twice a day.
Mai Thai is eating two cans of Fancy Feast tuna or chicken in gravy and gets dry food throughout the day. Hey, that sounds like me! And just like me, she doesn’t like the diabetic food.
Mai Thai is front declawed and spayed. This sweet indoor only cat loves to perch by the window or sit by the door. She likes people but is not fond of small children. But if you have small children, she will not attack them. Instead, she will jump high enough that they won’t bother her.
Mai Thai loves to play and will follow you around. When she is following you, you can count on her enjoying being petted or brushed. And she won’t cuddle with you, but at night, she will sleep at your feet and talk to you. She’s very loving. Just look at that face and tell me you’re surprised.
Mai Thai’s current human rescued her in 2004. Then she got married in 2009, and her husband does not like Mai Thai. My human has long said that if it comes down to the girlfriend or the cats, the girlfriend is leaving but apparently some other humans do not feel that way.
In 2010, Mai Thai’s humans started a family, and she went to live with her human’s parents. That was supposed to be a temporary solution, and when the human babies were born, Mai Thai was supposed to return. But now her human’s husband has said he does not want Mai Thai to come back and has banished Mai Thai to the basement. Jerk!
Can you help this sweet, loving diabetic cat find a home? If you don’t have room in your home for her, maybe someone you know does?
