My story

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


🐾 Meet Mama 🌸 a little special needs lady looking for a forever family to keep her on track to the best years of her life.

Mama is about 9 years old & has been recently diagnosed with diabetes. She has handled her new protocol at life very well and is adapting and feeling so much better now that she is being regulated.

Diabetes sounds like a scary thing but let us tell you why it's not & how easy it is to care for a special needs girl like mama!

Every 12 hours she is given insulin by injection, with an extremely small needle 💉, she is fed pate wet food only, her water intake and attitude is monitored to make sure she is "feeling herself" & that's really it. She will always need regular vet visits with blood work and continued care but that is what every kitty should have!

Mama is looking for a foster to adopt or a foster to get back into a home of a regular house cat. If you are not experienced but want to learn, we will teach you! The little extra work this girl requires will absolutely be repaid in her charming, sweet and gentle souled personality. This girl is a true gem 💎 & deserves nothing but the best!

If interested in learning more about mama, diabetes in cats or or the care she requires please feel free to email us at or submit an application at

*even if interested in only fostering, an application does need to be submitted*
