Minnie came to the shelter after potentially months of neglect. A nice lady took her in, but was unable to keep her indefinitely as Minnie wasn’t fond of the resident cats at all!
Minnie is a very sweet little lady. She has the most beautiful green eyes, and raises a paw when she would like affection (see video on facebook, it’ll melt your heart!)
Upon taking Minnie for her routine check at our vets, it was discovered that she was diabetic and most likely has been for a while. She started her treatment in February and is doing well. She has 2 injections of insulin a day (12 hours apart) and is very well behaved for them.
Due to this condition, Minnie is desperate for an experienced person (or even a novice if willing to learn!) To give her a home and keep her treatment going. Currently she has insulin administered at 12 hourly intervals, so ideally someone who has the same daily routine or perhaps works from home would be ideal. Minnie will be part of our long term foster scheme too, which means that she will come and live with her new family permanently, but the shelter can help with veterinary costs, medications and support and advice.
Please don’t be put off by this diagnosis, Minnie can still live a full and happy life and it’s really not that scary administering insulin! And Minnie is very well behaved when it’s time for her little jab. She is easily won over with a treat too!
Minnie has been living indoors for at least the last 6-7 months and seems comfortable with this. Due to her condition, it would be best for Minnie to remain indoor (unless you have a very secure back garden) as she will need her medication at the same times each day.
We know Minnie doesn’t like other cats, but we aren’t sure how she would be with children. She can be a little shy to start with, so maybe older or sensible children may be ok. Once settled in, she is the most wonderful little cat. She enjoys lots of affection, and a brush to keep her well groomed and looking her best! She even enjoys being picked up for a cuddle. She also chirps and chats to you through the day. She is quite independant and likes to go and find a comfy spot for a snooze, but will come and find you when she wants something!
If you could give Minnie her perfect home, please get in touch.
