This sweet, handsome, 12-year-old orange Tabby cat is a lovebug who happens to be diabetic. Oscar handles this slight inconvenience with matter of factness, since he has lived with this condition for many years. Mellow and sometimes timid, our Oscar is looking for a home that can provide for his special needs. He is on medicine and a special diet, both of which can be easily scheduled into a daily routine and conveniently purchased.
Typical of a mature kitty, Oscar is not so much interested in playtime as he is in lap time! He purrs contently while being held and cuddled. He grooms himself daily and welcomes regular combing...or is that just another way to get petted and lap time? We're not really sure.
Many of us have family members with diabetes and without a second thought, we are able to offer support and give them our unconditional love. Can you do the same for this special need kitty?
Oscar has been at Animal Friends for several months and is now eager to find his new loving family. Ask to meet him! Adoption counselors can provide more information about Oscar and also about how Animal Friends may be able to help support his special needs.
