Vinny is 7, diabetic, not doing well at the shelter, has *maybe* a week left, but it's more urgent than that because of his health.
August 30, 2012: The shelter had to take in over 50 cats from a hoarding situation. Vinny is very stressed. BGs are up, vomiting and diarrhea. Has seen the vet and a fecal was checked for parasites, there's nothing, this is stress related.
Shelter feels he can only have another week if he doesn't get help soon.
August 22, 2012: Located in Ohio, this very handsome little man was brought to DCIN's attention by a wonderful shelter. Surrendered without the owner telling the shelter that Vinny was diabetic, once they realized he was diabetic they had to move fast. The recommendation was for euthanasia but the amazing shelter staff do not want to do that and need help to find a home.
This young man was urinating outside of the box, the reason for the surrender. As most people know, an unregulated diabetic kitty can have problems, but once regulated much of that goes away.
Altered and declawed, before surrender the owner said he was an indoor/outdoor kitty. The owner told the shelter that Vinny does like to have his belly rubbed and does fetch plastic rings. He did live with another kitty.
He was on dry food, but the shelter has agreed to change his diet to canned food only. Insulin cannot be given where he is now.
Please email Jennifer@dcin.info for more information.
