Abused Cat Bindy Is Ready For Adoption

You kind humans remember that I shared the story of Bindy, who was abused because some cruel humans decided that she needed to be punished for getting pregnant.  Michigan Cat Rescue took Bindy in, and she was in bad shape.  She wasn’t eating, and had to be fed with a syringe.  She also had an infection that needed to be treated.  And there was the problem with the poor girl’s eye.

Bindy will always be a special needs cat.  But as you hopefully have learned by now, a diabetic cat like me does require some extra attention, but not too much.  Bindy will require less attention, because her condition won’t get worse without treatment and can’t be treated anyway.Bagheera the Diabetic Cat loves how much better Bindy looks

Bindy went to see an eye specialist a couple of days ago, and the specialist had good news.  Many of us thought that Bindy lost her eye when she was abused.  She didn’t.  An ultrasound showed that Bindy didn’t have an eye in the empty socket to begin with.  So she was always a one eyed cat.

Amazingly, despite being abused, Bindy is a very sweet and loving cat.  She is shy, but this is not surprising at all.  If you give Bindy time, she will warm up to you.  She will need to be adopted into a quiet home, and having a mellow cat who will keep her company would be ideal.  Bindy is afraid of dogs, so she cannot go to a home with canines present.

Michigan Cat Rescue would prefer to adopt Bindy to a home in Michigan.  If you live there, and would like to adopt her, please fill out their adoption form.

Bindy is another cat that shows whether they are diabetic cats like me or have other special needs, for the right humans, we can be very loving companions.  Bindy deserves a loving home, and I hope she finds one soon!

Help Raise Awareness of Animal Abuse

I know that the humans who read my blog would never abuse their furry friends.  And even though my human gets frustrated with me when I complain about the testing and injections a diabetic cat needs, I know that he loves me and would never hurt me if he could help it.  Just like any human, he will tell me if I am a bad cat, and he may tell me to stop if I am misbehaving.  But he does it in a safe and humane way.

Dottie is a victim of animal abuseUnfortunately, there are way too many humans who do not act like he does, and like you do.  The stories I have shared about Lucky, Bindy, Justin, Freida, and Dottie are proof that there are evil humans out there who would harm cats for no reason.  And while both four legged and two legged creatures would love to think that these are isolated incidents, that is tragically not the case.

My human was late bringing this to my attention, so I am writing this the week after Animal Abuse Awareness Week.  But it is so important to raise awareness of animal abuse and to help you humans know what to do if you see an animal being abused.

First, I know that if you are like my human, you would want to rush in and give the abuser a taste of their own medicine.  Don’t.  As much as you may want to set the person who abused Justin on fire, or dump acid on the person who did it to Lucky, it’s not the answer.  My human tells me a very smart man named Martin Luther King said you “must have sense enough to meet hate with love.”Bagheera the diabetic cat wants you to help stop animal abuse

That doesn’t mean you have to let the abuse go unchecked.  What you should do is contact your local Humane Society or law enforcement agency.  When you call in the report, make sure to give the the following information:

  • What abuse is taking place
  • Who is committing the abuse
  • Where the abuse is happening
  • When the incident occurred

Don’t let animal abuse go unreported.  If you see something, say something.

We cannot stop all the abuse, but we can put an end to the abuse we see.  Jacey and I thank you for all the help you will give our fellow four legged friends!
