Special Need: Diabetes

Yardley To know Yardley is to love her madly.

But, first, you have to choose to know her. With her quiet ways, Lady Yardley won't demand your attention. She's more Queen Elizabeth than "We Will Rock You," peacefully awaiting your affection from her soft throne in the Tabby's Place Lounge.

But, sure enough, Yardley's Renoir-beautiful face will draw you in, her gentle blinks whispering, "I'd love to be your friend." Once you sit beside her and begin loving her -- and letting her love you -- you'll be one smitten kitten.

Yardley is one of the gentlest, most kindhearted cats we've met at Tabby's Place. Her quiet exterior veils a heart of gold, and she needs only the merest hint of affection before shell begin loving you back with zest.

We can't imagine how anyone would abandon such an enchanting girl. But, it seems that's what happened; Yardley was found wandering, lonely and confused, as though she hadn't been outdoors very long. When we whisked her in from the cold to the comforts of Tabby's Place, we discovered that she was sweet on multiple levels. She had an angelic personality...and a persnickety pancreas. Yardley was diabetic.

Sadly, cats with Special Needs like diabetes are sometimes rejected by their owners due to the expense and inconvenience of caring for them. But Yardley found a haven at Tabby's Place. We embrace Special Needs cats as our very own, promising each one that she'll always receive the care she needs to thrive, regardless of cost.


Lovely Lady Yardley is thriving thanks to that promise. In our Lounge, she shares a nutritious prescription diet with our fellow diabetic residents. We regularly monitor Yardley's blood glucose and inject her with insulin twice each day. She's living, loving proof that diabetic cats can lead full and healthy lives, sweetened to perfection with love.

Diabetes is an especially costly condition, and we realize that Yardley's charms may not be enough to get her adopted. You can nurture this darling girl as her sponsor, keeping her healthy and cherished for as long as she needs us. Please open your heart to Yardley; she'd love to be your friend.
