Puppy is a senior orange/red tabby that was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago and had never received treatment (insulin), due to financial issues. Puppy was then surrendered to a local shelter because the owner could no longer care for him. Puppy is a loving and gentle cat who deserves to find a loving home!
Puppy recently spent some time in a foster home for some extra TLC. Here is what his foster had to say: "He is an absolutely AMAZING cat... This is a cat that truly LOVES being around people and is happiest when a person is in the room with him. He is ALWAYS happy to see us when we walk in, always meowing in greeting and wanting to be petted. The purrs and meows start as soon as we open the door! He is a very easy and gentle patient when he needs extra medical attention. He also loves to play with catnip toys, especially if you're playing with him! His favorite food is Sheba Chicken Pate, with lots of water mixed in (he has no teeth and this makes it easier for him to eat). He has mild diabetic neuropathy in his hind feet that may get better with time, but for now, he prefers to be on the floor and gets nervous when he is picked up.
"He is on 2 units of Lantus insulin twice daily, which is very easy to do! He needs a home with a person willing to monitor his diabetes closely and give him all the love and attention he wants. You'll absolutely love having him as part of your family!" For more pictures and videos of Puppy while he was in foster, please click here: http://tinyurl.com/jornd4d
