Mitzi’s life likely started on the streets. Mitzi was a local community cat for the first decade or so of her life and was cared for by a local volunteer. She was always friendly with her caretaker and was a healthy, albeit a bit chunky, girl.
A few months ago, however, Mitzi’s caretaker began to notice that our girl just didn’t seem herself. She was losing weight, had a dirty coat, and overall just didn’t seem to be the happy, healthy lady that she once was. Thankfully, her caretaker was able to trap her and bring her in to see our vet staff. After a few tests, Mitzi was diagnosed with diabetes and she was immediately taken into foster care with one of our dedicated vet techs.
In her foster home, Mitzi has shown off her sweet, affectionate side. She can be a little shy and doesn’t like dogs, but she is very friendly towards people and other cats. She handles all her baths, insulin injections, and other treatments with grace and patience. There’s not a mean bone in her entire body.
Mitzi has a little ways to go in terms of recovery. Getting her diabetes under control is one of our top priorities, but once she is stable, she will be able to pack on the pounds once again.
Mitzi would love to live in a calm household with other cats. After a life living in a colony, she absolutely loves to hang out with other cats and seeks out their comfort. She also does okay with respectful children.
