This past spring there was a diabetic cat named Jeff whose time was running out to find a new home.  Working with Diabetic Cats in Need volunteers drove to Massachusetts to pick up Jeff and give him a new lease on life.  Jeff was placed into a permanent foster home and his new foster mommas started working closely with our vet to learn everything they needed to know about diabetes.  They started home testing and learned how to give Jeff his insulin shots.  All was going well.  

On Friday night, October 18th, Jeff within an hour went from sleeping in his favorite spot to having seizures to being non-responsive by the time he and his mommas arrived at the emergency room.  

The ER vet called and asked that we choose euthanasia as his temperature was so low it wouldn't register a reading and his blood sugar had dropped to a level so low the vet could not get a reading.  After receiving a quote of $800-$1,000 for a weekend at the ER attempting to save Jeff the decision was made to try.  We were not ready to just give up.

By Saturday morning, October 19th, Jeff was out of his coma and responsive.  He appreared alert but was blind. We were so thankful he was alive.  

By the time Jeff came home yesterday, October 20th, Jeff was seeing shadows.  He is stabalized, eating well and very happy to be home.  

The next few weeks will require extra vet visits to make sure he is back on track and remaining regulated.  We are hoping that you might look at Jeff's photo and know that he deserved that second chance.  

If you do won't you consider helping us pay for his care. While we know we can't save them all we do commit to try to save the cats whose paths cross ours and in Jeff's case, those who are in our long terms care.  We cannot continue to save lives without donations from people who care about the work our small grass roots organization does....thank you and please keep Jeff in your prayers....God bless....xo
