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.
Supposedly, we felines cannot get along with canines. This is not true. Koji likes to play with canines, but he plays too roughly with small canines and they get scared of him. He loves to pounce on larger canines, and then they wrestle. I do not mind canines, until they lick me with their sloppy wet tongues. This annoys me, so then I swat the canines who do this to me.
But even when a canine annoys me, I do not think it should be treated as badly as one poor canine near me. An evil human abandoned a canine named Remington in a canyon. An abandoned canine normally does not get a lot of attention. But this poor canine did for a very sad reason.
Rescuers found Remington in a severely emaciated and dehydrated state. He was close to death. One of the white coated humans at San Diego Humane Society said in all their years working as a veterinarian, they had “never seen a dog this emaciated.” Poor Remington weighed less than 20 pounds. When he arrived, the humans in white coats worried that he might not make it through the night.
And humans with badges are looking to find out who the evil humans are that treated Remington so poorly before abandoning him. They are offering a reward of $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the evil humans who did this.
Kind humans are showing lots of love to Remington. They are sending sweaters to him, because he will need lots of those to keep warm while he gains weight.
I hope that Remington recovers and goes to a good home. And I hope that the evil humans who abused him spend time in a cage.
You all know that many humans do not adopt senior cats. And senior cats with special needs are even more difficult get adopted. This is why I am so happy that a senior feline with diabetes got adopted near me.
Buddy Love was staying at San Diego Humane Society. This 12 year old black and white cat was a mellow and calm feline. But he loved people, and loved to purr when kind humans pet him. And he enjoyed hopping in human’s laps.
The kind humans at San Diego Humane Society knew it would take longer to adopt him out. And they also knew that because he was battling diabetes, it would be even more challenging to find a home for him. That did not stop them from trying to find Buddy Love a home. Until he found one, the staff and volunteers made sure Buddy Love enjoyed his time with them.
Buddy Love spent 200 days in the shelter, patiently waiting for the right human to come along. Finally, someone did. These humans fell in love with Buddy Love after watching his video.
But they were not sure they could adopt him like the small humans in the video suggested. It took them a couple of months before they decided that they were going to take him home.
And this is a perfect home for him. You see, these humans already have dealt with a pet fighting diabetes. They give their diabetic canine insulin shots so giving them to a feline is not a problem. Plus, they have two other senior felines, and know how to take care of us when we start to slow down.
You can see that the human who adopted Buddy Love is very happy. I am happy, too, that a senior diabetic cat like him found a good home.
I am always happy when a feline finds a good home. Jacey, Koji, and I are all lucky that we did not have any problems finding one. We found one right away. Some felines are not as fortunate and must endure a lot before someone takes them in. Often, cat rescue groups must step in before that happens.
That is what happened to Scooter. This poor feline had to endure a lot before finding a home. You see, when Scooter was a tiny feline, some evil and cruel human decided to shoot him with a pellet gun. This is a horrible thing to do. Animal abuse is never something that should be tolerated. It should be punished by the human committing that act being locked in a cage where my big feline cousins can swat and bite them as they please!
This pellet caused some problems for Scooter. He could not walk normally, and he had some issues using the litter box. But the kind humans at San Diego Humane Society worked hard to help him with his problems. The humans who worked in cat rescue there all loved Scooter because of his loving nature and fighting spirit.
Many humans visited the cat rescue facility there, and saw Scooter. But many of them decided that they could not handle treating his medical conditions, and so Scooter patiently waited for the right humans to come along. Do not think that he did not enjoy his time with the cat rescue humans. He did, but it is always more fun to live in a place you can call your own.
One day, the right family came along, and they decided to adopt Scooter. They talked to the humans in white coats about his condition and what it would require to treat. And they decided that they would work with Scooter so that they could take him home.
Now, Scooter is a happy feline in a home of his own where his humans love him very much and he returns that love. He has come a long way from having to endure evil humans abusing him, and I am glad his cat rescue story had such a happy ending!
