Please Share and Help this Burned Cat

Today I must share a very sad story about a cat who was the victim of horrible animal abuse.  Elizabeth is a feline who had a human home, but unfortunately also had an evil and cruel human neighbor.  The 16 year old neighbor threw her into an open pit fire.  This evil human must never be allowed anywhere near any animals again, and that is why we need an animal abuse registry.

Poor Elizabeth is a victim of animal abuseThis was enough cruelty to make me want to take my claws and slash the evil human’s face many times, so he could suffer some of the pain he inflicted on Elizabeth.  I told my human that evil humans like this should be locked in a cage with my bigger feline cousins.  Then they can learn what it is like to be harmed by a creature that is much bigger and stronger than them.  He likes the idea, but he says it is not allowed.

Sadly, this is not where the pain stopped for Elizabeth.  The burning of my fellow feline was more than enough animal abuse.  The humans who failed to protect her were unable to turn her in to Darlington Rescue for several days because she went hiding!  Imagine being in the incredible pain she was in for many days.

Elizabeth was the victim of horrible animal abuse.  Please help!Well, my furiend Lucky shared Elizabeth’s story, and I am sharing it with you.  Much like Lucky, despite being in tremendous pain and having many reasons to not trust humans, she purrs and head butts the humans who are helping her recover.  Elizabeth is going to need a foster who can help her recover.  She will have to be an indoor only cat, and this horrible case of animal abuse is another example of  why it’s best for all of us to be indoor only cats.

To learn more about Elizabeth, you can go to the Darlington Rescue Facebook page.  Please share her story.  Let’s see if we can write a happy ending to this story like we did for Lucky and for Justin.

Cats Aren’t Garbage and Rescue Proves It

Do you remember Bindy?  She was a cat who was abused because a human decided that she was a bad cat that needed to be punished. Why did they think she was a bad cat?  Because they didn’t fix her, and she got pregnant.  And while diabetic cats like me can go blind if our diabetes isn’t treated, Bindy may have lost an eye due to her abuse.

But Michigan Cat Rescue took Bindy in, and nursed her back to health.  She was soon available for adoption.  Now they are doing the same for another cat.

This cat was placed in a box that was sealed up, and garbage was written on the box.  The only reason she was not picked up and tossed into the garbage truck was because someone heard her faint Bagheera the Diabetic Cat says Felines are Never Garbagemeows coming out of the box.  The humans who did this knew what they were doing, because they taped the box very tightly so that she would not escape and also made sure not to put any holes in there so that it would muffle her meowing.  I know that my human fans would never do something so cruel, but unfortunately, there are too many humans who do not realize that we felines are NEVER garbage.

Obviously, my poor fellow feline was very upset by this.  Michigan Cat Rescue thinks she is about three years old, and she is a very pretty calico.  While she was scared, she had started to warm up to the humans at the rescue.Say Hello to Bagheera the Diabetic Cat's Furiend Treasure

This girl was an unexpected rescue, and while Michigan Cat Rescue is struggling to pay for the cats they currently have, they could not turn this girl away.  Who can blame them?  After the nightmare this girl, who has been named Treasure, has been through, she deserves a good home.

I know that Bagheera’s the Diabetic Cat’s Buddies have been very generous.  Hopefully you can help once again.  And if you cannot, please share this story so that others can.

Help Kiwi the Shelter Kitty’s Humans

Hello, kind humans.  I have to share some sad news today.  One of my favorite furiends on Facebook was Kiwi the Shelter Kitty.  She often posted stories about special needs cats and asked people to help adopt them.  As a diabetic cat, any feline that wanted to help special needs cats is fine by me.  Kiwi the Shelter Kitty also came from the same place where my human started his love affair with cats.  And she lived close to where I lived before my human moved to southern California.  So I share a special kinship with my fellow feline Kiwi.

Kiwi’s humans clearly loved her, and she loved them.  She referreBagheera the Diabetic Cat sends headbonks to Achilles the Hund to them as Sir Furreh Face and Lady Nom Nom.  They are very kind humans, and they adopted a tripod cat Kiwi called Achilles the Hun.  She called the human in the white coat who took care of her Mr. Grabby Hands.  You had to love Kiwi’s spirit and heart.

She did so much to help her fellow felines, but unfortunately, nothing is forever.  Kiwi was diagnosed with a granulomatous neoplasm enveloping her lung.  Mr. Grabby Hands, as Kiwi referred to him, operated on her to try to remove it and give Kiwi a chance to continue to do her good work.

Unfortunately, it was not to be.  Kiwi didn’t make it, and left this world on the operating table.  Her spirit said that she knew “no greater joy den da gentle care, playful humor, and loyal companionship I shared with my beloved family. Dey risked everyting—der wealth, der credit, der dearest hopes—to bring me to da finest possible vet specialists.”

And now Kiwi’s humans, who are already heartbroken, need help.  Kiwi’s medical bills were very high.  The cost of the surgery, even though it was not successful, is around $9,000.  My human tells me that Kiwi lived in a place with a very high cost of living, so to pay that on top of the bills for things humans need is a tremendous burden.

Kiwi has 7,300 fans.  If ever fan donates just one dollar to help, that will help her humans get a long way to paying her bills.  I know how generous Bagheera the Diabetic Cat’s Buddies are.  There are 1,250 of you.  If each of you donates just one dollar, that will get Kiwi’s humans very close to where they need to be.

These humans are suffering already, because they have lost their dear feline friend.  Can you help so that they do not suffer too much financially?

It would make this diabetic cat very happy, and it would make Kiwi’s spirit happy.
