I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
Sometimes, you humans do things that make we want to swat you. Edna, a four year old tortie, arrived at San Francisco Fire Station 49 as a kitten. The firefighters at the station loved her, and they enjoyed having her around. She enjoyed spending time with them. And for four years, both Edna and all of the humans at the station enjoyed the arrangement.
Many people learned about Edna’s plight, and they responded with anger. One commenter said they were “very sorry to hear someone has screwed it up for Edna and those who cared for her.” They added “what the heck is wrong with that person and don’t they have anything better to do?”
The department said they could not have Edna around medical supplies due to the risk of contamination. But this does not make sense, furiends. These supplies are in boxes, and they are sealed in individual packages. Edna would not contaminate the supplies! And she likely kept mice and other rodents away from the station.
Fortunately for Edna, one of the humans at the fire station is taking her home temporarily. But she deserves to go back to her home at the station. I hope that happens soon.
Some humans say that felines and canines cannot get along well. That is just not true, furiends. And a canine who is a long term resident of Faithful Friends Animal Society in Wilmington, Delaware proved this.
It took a while, but the humans at Faithful Friends Animal Society were able to rescue the three kittens. They took the felines to the white coated humans for a check. After they were cleared medically, these felines went to foster homes. Soon, they will be available for adoption.
Hopefully, these tiny felines will be adopted more quickly than Harvey. Harvey has spent four years living at the shelter. He used to live with humans who were supposed to care for him, but they gave him up.
Harvey is a lot like Koji in that he is friendly and handsome, but very goofy. He does a lot of silly things, and he wants humans of his own to do those things around. And after waiting for as long as he has, Harvey deserves that home.
A kind human in Lakeland, Florida, is running a cat rescue out of her towing business. Bastet Little Cat Rescue got its start 15 years ago when the human behind it took their tow truck to a junk yard. They noticed a mother cat and her tiny felines, and they wanted to help.
Their efforts help both the junkyards and the felines. One junkyard owner said they had approximately 20 feral cats in their junkyard before Bastet Little Cat Rescue came to help. Now, they are down to five. And one of the felines there has become their work pet.
The cat rescue efforts can be expensive and they are definitely labor intensive. But the kind human behind the rescue says they will not slow down.
“I don’t pick and choose what cats we take in,” they said. “We take them all in — broken legs, blind in one eye — and we care for the ones no one wants. The great people that I’ve come across willing to take these cats into their homes, it just warms my heart. It’s so rewarding. “
Furiends, this makes me happy for the felines who are being helped, the junkyards who no longer have feral cat issues, and the human behind the rescue!
