About Us
Barney, the Pet of the Day
Name: Barney
Age: 14 Years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cat
Home: Granite Bay, California, USA
   Our cat Barney is always our "Pet of the Day." Barney is over 14 years old. He is a California native. We think Barney is a very special cat. He was diagnosed with diabetes over one year ago. Barney has adjusted very well to his new diabetes routine. He has a special diet and gets two injections of insulin every day. We also check his blood glucose at home - just like human diabetics do.

    Barney has been a trouper. Through all of this, he is still the same loving lap cat that he always was. He is also the dominant cat of our five cat, one dog home.

    I've attached Barney's picture - as you can see, he's quite handsome with his big "mane."
