Bently the Diabetic Cat and Skye Need Help

Hello, everyone.  Today I want to let you know about Bently and Skye.  These two cats live in Pennsylvania, and their human cannot take them with her when she moves.  That means that these two cats need a home.

Bently the Diabetic CatBently is the diabetic cat and Skye isn’t suffering from the disease.  It is kind of like me and Jacey, with the boy being a diabetic and the girl not.  This isn’t really a surprise, because diabetes strikes more male cats than female cats.

Bently was a big boy, but he has lost some weight since being diagnosed with diabetes in May of 2012.  He has not received any insulin since July of 2012.  Bently’s human just can’t administer it to him.  She’s had some other problems keeping his diabetes in check, as she isn’t able to administer the blood sugar tests at home, either.

Bently is declawed, neutered, and up to date on all of his shots.  He eats Purina DM dry food and Fancy Feast wet food.

Skye and Bently should go to the same home, as they are bonded to each other.  Since they are bonded to each other, they get along very well.  Bently craves human attention a little more than Skye does.Bently the Diabetic Cat with Skye

Bently seems to be a diabetic cat whose condition can likely be taken care of with diet alone, although testing will need to be done before we can conclude that for sure.  And of course, Diabetic Cats in Need will provide the human who adopts these two furiends with all the information and training they need to keep the diabetes under control.

I am sure there is room in your heart for these two felines. If there is enough room in your home for them, please get in touch with Jenn at Diabetic Cats in Need.

But if there’s not enough room in your home for them, please share their story.

A Little Fun to Brighten Your Monday

My human tells me that on Mondays, you humans are not very happy.  Jacey and I have mixed feelings about Mondays.  It means our human goes away for several hours and leaves us alone.  We like having him around, but sometimes, he bothers us when we are trying to sleep!  So we are glad that we can sleep, but we miss him.

So I wanted to do something to brighten up your Monday, with a little cat humor and some good news.Cat humor for a Monday

For the cat humor, I hear that you humans are like this on Monday.

Well, my human tells me he wishes he could be like this, but they expect him to do things at that place you humans call work.  I guess we cats do have it good, huh?  We don’t have to work, we can sleep when we want, and you come and take care of us.

Speaking of taking care of us, can you help me raise awareness of feline diabetes?  Diabetic cats like me are kind of unknown.  But if you help me win the Modern Cat cover contest, I can help raise awareness for my fellow diabetic cats.  Please vote for me.  You can vote every twelve hours and from multiple devices.  I’ve got a long way to go to hopefully catch Magoo, but with your help, we can make it happMy fellow bengal cat sharing a little cat humor with the dogen!

I also have good news to share with you about my fellow bengal cat Duke.  His human told mine that he is doing much better.  When poor Duke was rescued by the humans who originally had him, he was missing around a third of his fur!  But because of their care and love, Duke has started to grow fur on his neck.  His front legs are starting to grow fur as well.  But because he is on prednisone, his fur will grow back slowly.  That’s why Duke hasn’t grown fur back where he was shaved.

You can see that Duke is starting to look more and more like the very handsome bengal boy he used to be and soon will be again.

I hope that this makes you feel better on this Monday.  I love to cheer my human up, so hopefully this will do the same for you.

Meet Jack And Loki

Today I want you to meet a couple of four legged furiends who are not felines, not diabetic cats, but who you should know about anyway.

Of course these two dogs are not diabetic catsJack and Loki are two dogs who were rescued by the same humans about a year apart.  Now they are best buddies and they love to cuddle, wrestle, and share adventures with each other and their humans.  These two buddies love to play on the beach and the dog park.  And of course, they like to be walked.

I am going to have to have a word with my human about the beach.  Jacey and I need to see it.  And how come you humans don’t have cat parks?  I have heard about the walks that my canine furiends go on, but since that means we will be on a leash we can ignore those.  Jacey and I do not like the idea of a leash!

But these two canine furiends are doing something very good for all four legged creatures.  They are participating in the San Diego Human Society’s Walk for the Animals.

Jack and Loki’s humans understand first hand how hard it is to help find furever homes for four legged furiends.  The animals need help from the community to do this.  And they are part of the program that is attempting to make all shelters no kill shelters.  The San Diego Humane Society is a no kill shelter so that’s a start.

I would participate and so would Jacey, but we are NOT walking on a leash for two miles.  If our human thinks we are doing that, well, if he thinks I got mad when he wanted to bring back all sorts of big cats from the zoo, he hasn’t see anything!

Jack and Loki’s humans are shooting for a very ambitious goal.  Nobody has raised more than $4,000 since 2006, but they want to raise $5,000 for furry friends like me.

I made my human donate to them as part of the Giver Games.  You humans have been so kind to this diabetic cat and you say such nice things about me.  Can you help Jack and Loki’s humans raise money so that other diabetic cats and homeless pets can find homes?
