My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

HISTORY: GYPSY was surrendered to SFAS by her owner who couldn’t deal with managing her diabetes.  
TEMPERAMENT: 

HISTORY: GYPSY was surrendered to SFAS by her owner who couldn’t deal with managing her diabetes.
TEMPERAMENT: GYPSY is sweet and gentle. She sometimes enjoys sitting on the sofa next to human companions. She needs a quiet adult home with someone willing to following the feeding and insulin schedule of every 12 hours, without access to kibble. We are hoping that GYPSY will ultimately go into remission as we have found that the correct low-carb diet can play a significant role in controlling diabetes.

AGE:  born approx.  8/27/07  
MICROCHIP #:   981020037041340   
DATE OF STERILIZATION:    2/26/08 
VAX RECORD:    FVRCP expires: 8/5/21; Rabies expires: 8/5/23 
FELV/FIV test:    5/18/20; neg 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:  GYPSY's diabetes is currently being managed with a small amount of insulin every 12 hours.   She is eating Wellness Turkey canned food only which has resulted in her glucose number being fairly stable.  

ADOPTION FEE: $100
