Stephanie Klein
Russell, ON

"Benji" came to us on June 2, 2020 from Centreville where his owner could no longer care for him.  He has hyperthyroidism which requires medication daily, which he accepts with no complaints at all.  Benji is a very loving and affectionate little boy who also requires a bit of dental work. 

Benji is a sweetheart, but will tell you when you've started to cross a line by putting his teeth on you, but will not bite!  He just wants us to know who's in charge, and as every cat owner knows, it's not us!

REQUIREMENTS:  Methimazole twice daily for life to control his hyperthyroidism

"Atlas" came to DunRoamin' on November 27, 2019 from Beechwood.  He was born about November 27, 2015 so was only about four years old.  Atlas had been urinating inappropriately for several months and his family could no longer keep him, so he came to us for help.

Atlas is a very nice boy who was immediately assessed by his new vet friend.  Among other things, he had enlarged lymph nodes and inflammation and has since been diagnosed with irritable bowl disorder.  He has the very best of care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  Atlas has had some issues trying to put on weight but he's now maintaining his weight and may even decide to put on a few ounces!  He will be vaccinated as soon as he is healthy enough to receive them.  Atlas is currently on medication and prescription food. 

Atlas is very friendly, loving and affectionate and he is very grateful for the care of his new vet friend who checks in on him frequently.  His greatest wish is for a home where he can be spoiled, even if he has to take a little medication daily - it's well worth it, and so is he!!

REQUIREMENTS:  medications, prescription food for life, vaccines

Goochi

Sponsored by:

Janice McIntosh
Woodstock, NB

Penny McCain
Florenceville, NB

On January 28, 2011, "Goochi," just 10 weeks old, came to DunRoamin' from the Bristol area where she was one of three kittens who were feral, cold, hungry and very scared.  They had a terrible amount of parasites, including fleas, ear mites and worms.  All these troubles were quickly addressed.  She was born about December 7, 2010.

Goochi was rescued by a senior citizen who had seen her, her mother and two sisters in the snow outside her apartment.   The temperatures had been below -25*C and when you add in the wind chill, few creatures, if any, could survive outdoors for long in that kind of cold.

Even with the terribly cold temperatures, when the lady saw them in her back yard, she left her patio door open so they could come in where it was warm and have the benefit of plenty of food.  Even as feral as they were, they recognized compassion and came slowly inside.  When the senior citizen would get up to close the door, they'd run back outside.  She finally was able to close the door behind them and they came to us for help.  Goochi will probably remain with us.  She is not a cuddle cat and is not really comfortable around humans but is happy to have the company of other cats and to have a warm and safe home with someone to watch over her.  Gooch has a family with DunRoamin' - she's loved and will always be cared for.  She LOVES her diet of Royal Canin Dental food.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food (Royal Canin Dental), lots of love and understanding.

Strauss

Bliss Burgoyne
North View, NB

"Strauss" came to DunRoamin' on October 28, 2014 from the Brookville area where she was one of several cats who had taken refuge in a shed.  Kind neighbours had very generously taken on the task of their care and were diligent enough to notice a lump on her belly.  Strauss was diagnosed with an umbilical hernia which was quickly repaired when she was accepted as a DunRoamin' ward. Strauss was born about May 1, 2014.

Strauss has become a very affectionate and trusting little girl.  As of January 21, 2015, she is fostered with a family in Bristol.  It is most probably a very unique experience for her!  She must eat a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure that she does not develop crystals in her urine which can cause her much harm.  Under her current care and in her wonderful foster home, she's perfectly healthy and happy and is grateful for her new life.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food for life (Royal Canin Urinary S/O)

Abel

Sponsored by:

Eden Rogers
Aroostook, NB

"Abel" came back to us on April 20, 2018 from Woodstock where he had been adopted in December 2015.  He had originally come to us from Lakeville in 2012 where he was one of several cats who were hanging around a home but had no one to care for him.  He, his brother Abner and sister Avis came to us all at the same time.  Abner and Avis have both been adopted.

Abel is a sweet little boy who was originally very timid and needed his brother Abner to feel safe, but he's now very confident, secure and happy on his own.  Abel is eating a diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to make sure that he is healthy as he has a tendency to form crystals in his urine which may block his ureter if he eats other foods.  We have had dozens of cats who have been placed on this diet and it works extremely well - no problems at all, as long as they eat this diet.

Abel is currently in a foster home where he will be loved, cuddled and doted upon until he is chosen for a permanent home - he can't wait!  He was born about April 1, 2012.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food for life (Royal Canin Urinary S/O)

Razor

Sponsored by:

Ashley & Tyler Green
Grand Falls, NB

Mike & Pat Cabatu
New Maryland, NB

"Razor" came back to us on February 4, 2016 when, due to changing family circumstances, they were unable to keep him.  He had originally come from Woodstock on June 20, 2014 where he had arrived as a stray at a home where a young couple spent much time helping stray cats in their area.  They recognized his need for medical assistance and made certain he received it.  He had an aural hematoma on his right ear and had injuries around his head and neck.  He was subsequently adopted to a home in Hartland, but due to family considerations, he was returned to us.  He was born some time in 2006, so he's about ten years old.

Razor had some wounds which were diagnosed as the result of Feline Cutaneous Asthenia, a hereditary condition in which the skin does not contain enough collagen and therefore has less elasticity than normal.  This can cause damage to the skin if it is stretched and torn.  Razor is currently on medication to help combat this, but this disease is incurable.  He will stay in a foster home and be loved, cuddled and spoiled as long as possible.  He is a very sweet little boy who loves people, cats, dogs and everything in between.

Razor must wear an Elizabethan cone to ensure he does not further injure his ear by scratching.  He has undergone surgery on his ear and also had surgery on his eyes due to entropion - a condition in which the eyelids turn inward and the eyelashes scratch the eyeball.  His surgery was a resounding success and he's doing very well.  Despite all his challenges, he is an amazingly sweet and loving little boy.

REQUIREMENTS:  daily medication for life, Soft Paws for itchiness

Debi O'Leary
Woodstock, NB

"Quarry" came to us on July 28, 2018 from Newbridge where she was found on the side of the road, possibly having been struck by a vehicle.  She had cuts and scratches on her face and fluids in her abdomen.  She has received all required medical care and is doing much better as of a month later.  She has been spayed and will be up to date on her vaccines as of mid-September 2018. 

Quarry is timid and will require a very quiet home.  She will most probably not be an extremely affectionate cat but would appreciate a safe, warm and loving place to live.  She has been diagnosed with a condition called "pillow foot" which is an inflammation or swelling in the pads of her feet.  It is not a contagious condition, but it can reoccur or "flare up."  For this reason Quarry must be an indoor cat ONLY to ensure she does not injure her feet and allow the pillow foot to flare.  A mild form is not necessarily uncomfortable but should she be out on her own and the pad swells, splits open or develops ulcers or sores, she would require treatment.  Quarry would like to have a quiet, loving home where she can be cared for to ensure her feet will not flare up again.  She also requires medication for itchiness.

REQUIREMENTS:  medication, food, vaccines, love and patience

Langford

Shelby Shaw
Saint John, NB

"Langford" came to DunRoamin' on March 8, 2019 from Woodstock where he had been a stray who had been hanging around for about six months and was being fed and sheltered during the recent cold winter months.  Yesterday, he had appeared with a large bleeding wound on the left side of his neck.  Langford was born about March 8, 2017, so had apparently been surviving on his own for a while.

Langford was delivered immediately to his newest vet friend for the medical intervention he required.  It was learned that Langford had sustained a previous wound on his neck which had abscessed and burst. Langford was prescribed antibiotics and other required medical care, which he quickly received.  Langford is covered with numerous old fight wounds, indicating that he's had a rough life to date, but all that changed today.  He is very loving and affectionate and is grateful for the warm bed and plentiful food.  He's a social eater who prefers to have company when he eats, so when someone is with him, he eats up a storm of that ever-present banquet!  He'll put on some weight and be fine very soon and he hopes that someone will give him a loving home.  Langford tested positive for FIV.  Please read about FIV and FeLV here.

REQUIREMENTS:  food, vaccines, medication for itchiness for life, love and care until he finds a home

** FIV is contagious to other cats through blood and saliva.  It is reasonably difficult to spread, however, and now believed to be mostly spread through deep bite wounds.  Obviously it would be ideal if FIV-positive cats only lived with other FIV-positive cats, but currently some of the large rescue centers in the US have been studying multi-cat households with FIV-positive cats living with FIV-negative cats and have found the risk to the non-FIV cats to be very small, assuming that the cats are all spayed/neutered and used to living in groups (ie:  not as likely to fight).  We currently have FIV+ cats living with FIV- cats in foster homes and have experienced no difficulty whatsoever.

"Trez" returned to us on December 27, 2019.  He originally came to us on July 13, 2018 from Riverbank, NB where he had been abandoned in a kennel outside the door of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He had very long nails, ear mites, was not neutered and was terrified.  All these problems were addressed and he quickly became a cuddle cat once he realized he was safe and among friends. 

Trez was adopted on December 15, 2018 to a home in Hartland, but it was reported that he was not happy in that home, so he returned to us.  He developed a bit of an upper respiratory infection (cold) which was treated.  He has recently experienced some diarrhea and is working on getting it all under control.  He hopes for a chance at another home very soon.  He is friendly, loving and affectionate.  Please come meet him.

REQUIREMENTS:  prescription food, vaccines, ongoing medications

Frazzle

Sponsored by:

Eastwood Play & Learn Daycare
Woodstock, NB

"Frazzle" came to us from Waterville on the morning of May 13, 2019 where she had been found on a porch at 8 am.  Frazzle could barely move.  She was brought for help and was immediately taken to the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic for examination and assistance.  Frazzle was not in good shape.  She was born about May 13, 2017, but weighed only three pounds.

Frazzle was dehydrated, very pale, had halitosis, was emaciated, lethargic, had burdocks matted in her fur and had a purulent discharge coming from her eyes.  A thermometer revealed that her body temperature was also several degrees below normal.  She was very cold.

Frazzle was warmed up, given intravenous fluids, medications and several tests were conducted to determine if her kidneys and other organs were working properly.  Frazzle was so exhausted and weak that, in the next few hours and days, she could barely hold her head up when trying to eat warm food.

On May 14, 2019, Frazzle received a blood transfusion from a generous feline donor which has begun to make a world of difference for her.  Thanks, Biggie, you saved her life!  Frazzle used the litter box for the first time on May 15 and appears to have the tiniest bit of energy - that's a WONDERFUL sign!

On May 31, 2019, we learned that Frazzle is improving nicely and is comfortable, happy, purring and content with her huge staff of human servants who wait on her hand and foot, day and night and she will be treated like a queen while under the medical care of the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  Her food must be put through a blender and she is fed through a tube until she is able to eat on her own.  Soon!

She (and we) would like to thank the Florencevile Veterinary Clinic for their kind and hard work to ensure this little one has a chance at the life she deserves.  She is feeling so much better and shows her gratitude to her vet tech foster mom daily.

"Randall" originally came to DunRoamin' on February 7, 2012 from Grand Falls where he had been a stray in the community for about five years.  He recently came back dragging himself - obviously injured.

Examination revealed that Randall was scared, dehydrated, had an infection, a fused lumbar and was FIV+.  At this point he couldn't walk.  Randall was born approximately some time in 2005.

On July 16, 2012, Randall became a Cat For Seniors cat and lived in Woodstock with his senior until February 2020 when he returned to us as his senior was no longer able to keep him.  Randall shows signs of his age, but his purrer works just fine and he is so happy to have both feline and human friends and company.

Randall is a sweet cat.  He is now approximately 15 years old and is so grateful to have the life he has enjoyed since becoming a DunRoamin' cat.  He thanks everyone who has helped him along the way, including his newest benefactors.  Thank you so much.

Chiffon

"Chiffon" returned to us on February 20, 2019 from Plaster Rock where she had been adopted in 2012.  She had been a very well-loved cat in her home, but her family was moving into a special care home and was no longer able to care for her, so she returned to us.

Chiffon is a healthy, happy little girl who is diabetic.  She requires an injection of insulin each morning and evening (which she takes very easily) and eats a diabetic diet, but this is no big deal for her or for her humans and it's inexpensive, so no worries!  She is very loving, very affectionate and a very happy girl.  She'd be ecstatic if she could go to a new home along with Chicory, her friend with whom she has lived for seven years.  They're very close and love each other.

REQUIREMENTS:  insulin injections twice daily and prescription diabetic food for life, lots of cuddling and attention

"Hatfield" came to us on February 4, 2019 from the NB SPCA.  He was born about February 4, 2017, so was only about two years old.  We believe he is a sibling to Janine.  Because Hatfield came from a location where Feline Leukemia had been found in other cats, he was segregated and retested on March 18, 2019, at which time it was confirmed that he did not have Feline Leukemia and is perfectly healthy.

Hatfield was a bit timid, but he's learning that he's safe and sound and that he has many servants who will ensure he has everything he'll need!  He just needs a little more time to come around, and he's doing very well.  He has had some itchiness on his legs and belly which require medication but he is doing very well.

"Mordecai" came to DunRoamin' on November 15, 2019 from Perth-Andover where he had been a stray who had been hanging around for about a year.  Although people were feeding him at times, he had no one to care for him.  He had recently been noticed to be matted and have a hard time eating.

Mordecai was examined by his new vet and found to be in poor shape.  He tested positive for FIV and had moderate muscle wasting in much of his body.  He was dehydrated, matted, had ear mites and such severe dental disease that all his teeth had to be removed as roots were exposed, several were abscessed and many were already missing.   We've all had a toothache, but that must have HURT!

Mordecai was already neutered and was born about November 15, 2008.  We hope to make the remainder of his life much more enjoyable than what he has obviously already been through.  All help will be greatly appreciated.

She was prescribed medication and required a feeding tube inserted until she feels well enough to eat on her own, which we hope will be very soon.  Waif was born about January 3, 2017 and is a very nice, friendly, affectionate little girl.  We'll keep you up to date on her progress.  We'd like to thank her vet tech foster mother for taking such good care of her.  She's in the best of hands.

Julie Smith
Keswick Ridge, NB

"Harold" came to DunRoamin' on March 13, 2020 from Perth-Andover, NB where he had been living under an apartment building and eating garbage.  No one could help him, so he came to us.

Harold was born about March 13, 2015.  He was very much underweight, had marked stomatitis (infected teeth) which means he needed all his teeth removed, and had hair loss on his back end.  His ears show some "character" as well.  This little boy needed help.  He is currently on antibiotics and pain medication.

Harold very quickly has made himself a favourite.  He is affectionate, loving and will turn himself inside out for a cuddle - he's very grateful to be warm, safe, have good and frequent food and have loving caregivers.  Once he's healthy again, he'd love to be an indoor cat so he can live safely and have his own family to love.  He was already neutered upon his arrival.  Harold tested negative for both Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.  As you can see by his face, he LOVES chin rubs - he's missed out on so many, but that changes today!!

Harold has undergone dental surgery and will receive full vaccines, lots of nutritious food and parasite control.   He is very choosy about what he eats and is not gaining weight as he should, but his caregivers are on that!  We hope he'll be fine soon.

"Chip" returned to us on February 27, 2018.  He had originally come to DunRoamin' on June 29, 2012 from Bath, NB where he had come to a home displaying injuries.  He had ear mites and a wound on his feet and the back of his right front leg, all of which were treated by his new friends at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic.  He was adopted to a home on January 15, 2014 where he lived happily.  In February, 2018, Chip began to urinate inappropriately and was diagnosed with bladder stones.  He underwent surgery to remove them and was soon doing well.  Chip was born about July 1, 2009 and is a real sweetheart.  He loves to lay upside down and have his belly rubbed and he's a great purrer!

Chip underwent a second surgery to remove additional bladder stones and his penis had to be removed as a result of damage inflicted by the stones.  He is just fine now - just ask Chazzy - he had the same surgery years ago.  As a matter of fact, he tells us he's just perfect!!

Chip requires a prescription diet of Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure he does not develop further problems, and we've had dozens of cats on this diet - there have been absolutely no problems or recurrences once they're on this diet!

"Tulsa" came to DunRoamin' from Johnville on March 19, 2020.  He had been dropped off at a home in January and had been living in their bathroom since, but had been having watery diarrhea and needed medical attention which his rescuer was unable to provide.  Tulsa was born about March 19, 2013, so is about seven years old.

Examination by his new vet revealed that he was already neutered, had a good body condition, had tartar and gum issues on his teeth that will require cleaning and some extractions.  He will start his vaccine routine immediately and once his diarrhea and teeth are addressed, will be ready for a home.

Tulsa was not a happy boy when he came to us, but he realized quickly that he's with friends and is happy to receive the love and care he's now learning about.  Once his diarrhea is cleared up and his mouth is attended to, he'll be anxious to join his very own loving family.  He has had his dental surgery and his mouth is doing well - we just need to get his diarrhea under control and he'll be good to go!  He can't wait!!

Fivel

"Fivel" returned to DunRoamin' on August 1, 2019.  He had originally come to us on June 5, 2015 from Florenceville where he had been found wandering in a yard.  He had a lacerated right hind leg, a severe infestation of ear mites, bleeding ears and infected puncture wounds on both front legs.  He needed help and he was able to receive it.  On December 15, 2015, he was adopted to a home in Peel.  Unfortunately, he developed crystals in his urine which clogged his urethra, ensuring urine could not leave his body.  This is very serious.

Fivel was accepted by DunRoamin' and underwent care at the Florenceville Veterinary Clinic where he received the medical care he needed.  He is a beautiful boy!  On August 6, 2019, he underwent surgery to remove several tiny stones stuck in his urethra.  This surgery, which included a perineal urethrostomy, allowed the stones to be removed/passed and he's doing so much better now.  He looked forward to joining the other boys in the S/O room (they must all eat Royal Canin Urinary S/O food to ensure they do not form stones and block again).  We have had dozens of cats on this diet and have had not a single recurrence - as long as they eat Urinary S/O food, they're perfectly fine!  Fivel is fortunate to have a temporary foster home and is gateful for all the assistance he has received from such caring people.

"Splinter" came to us on May 8, 2018 from Glassville where he'd been part of a colony of feral cats that was trying survive on their own.  Splinter was born about August 7, 2010, so was about eight years old.  In his life he had sustained several wounds and injuries.  Today he displayed a very badly infected ear and he needed help.

Splinter's ear was cleaned and he was placed on antibiotics to ensure the infection would not spread further.  He wasn't sure what to think of us at first, but this old guy was definitely happy to be warm, safe and have food delivered upon demand.  He is doing well, and although he was initially a little timid and quiet, he soon realized that we would take good care of him.  He is currently fostered with six other cats in Florenceville and he gets along with them very well.  He loves his toys and to sleep on his human's bed!  He hopes to have a permanent safe, warm and loving home soon.  He's tired of those long, cold, hungry winters and has paid his dues many times over.  He likes to be patted and have his belly rubbed, but mostly he loves having his back scratched at the base of his tail!  Elevator butt!!  Splinter tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus).  Please read about it here.   He's currently fostered in a home with six other cats in Florenceville.

Babbs has a fantastic purrsonality.  She loves everyone - especially kids!  She is very affectionate and loving and wants only to be with humans who will love her back.  She requires daily medication which she accepts easily and willingly.  She is a truly beautiful being and we hope she gets the home she deserves very soon.  Her favourite time, other than cuddling with humans, is pushing pens off a desk and carrying them around!  If you need a pen, just find Babbs - she'll have at least one!

Babbs has recently been diagnosed with kidney failure, so she will spend her remaining time with us being spoiled rotten!  She is a sweet little girl who deserves all the love and attention she can get!

Furgie has become one of our greeters at DunRoamin' and takes her job very seriously, although she has so much less to do due to COVID-10 restrictions, but we're all hoping this will pass soon.  Furgie was born about January 31, 2012 and hopes for a retirement home where she can sleep happily on someone's lap - it's the first place she goes if we sit down even for a second!  If you're looking for an attentive, affectionate little cat, she's your girl, and she'll pay back your kindness in spades!!  She has recently been diagnosed with diabetes, so she must take insulin twice daily and eat prescription diabetic food.  She is a beautiful little girl who loves all people and doesn't mind the medication at all, as long as someone is paying attention to her!

Furgie is a beautiful calico who will give everything to her new family, and she definitely has a lot to give.

Forest had upper respiratory infection, flea allergy dermatitis and ear mites.  She is a beautiful long-haired grey tabby who looks forward to having a safe, warm and caring home in which to spend the remainder of her life.  Because she has never been without multiple cats in her life with whom to sleep, cuddle and play, we hope she may be adopted with a sibling so that she may feel loved and comfortable when her life changes for the better!!

As of mid-February, Forest is still experiencing some upper respiratory symptoms and is under close supervision of her veterinarian to ensure she gets better as quickly as she can.  Had she not had this care, she would not be in a good place at all, but we are certain with the expertise of her vet, she will soon be fine.  She is currently on inhalable medication for asthma which she will need for life.  She will stay close to her vet for the next few weeks to ensure she is doing well, but would love to be adopted by a loving family who would be willing and able to give her asthma medication twice daily.  She takes it easily and is very grateful to feel so much better.  As long as she has lots of friends to entertain her, she would most probably do okay in a home with no other cats  -  but she LOVES to play and interact!!

It is our hope and wish that these kittens may be adopted in pairs, or at least to a home that already has feline family members as they have never been without other cats and appear to be very bonded to each other.

in memory of Ty

"Rocky" came to us on November 10, 2020 from Holmesville where he had been trying to survive on his own.  He tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) - please read about it here.  He is a nice boy who loves to have his ears scratched, although when he's had enough he'll let you know by whacking you with his paw - he's in charge, you know!  He currently lives with his friends Mordecai and Randall, both of whom also tested positive for FIV.

Rocky has come into his own very quickly.  He is friendly, affectionate and loves to have lots of pets and scratches.  If he tires of attention, he'll let us know with a quick swat, but then is back very quickly for more loving!  He is quite the boy!  He is happy to be in a foster home where he can have the run of the house, but he is looking for a home of his very own.

FIV+ cats may live long and happy lives and may interact with other cats as long as they do not fight, and he's a lover, not a fighter!  Please come meet this gorgeous tuxedo cat!  He is SO hoping for a home where he can sleep on a bed, watch TV and help his person type on a computer!  He loves to hang out with people!

Cecily

"Cecily" came to us on June 3, 2021 from the Hartland area where she had been part of a group of cats who were not in good shape.  Cecily was born about June 3, 2018 and may be related to Marla (see above) and had a similar medical problem - she had severe upper respiratory infection and an infected left eye.  She also required all her teeth to be removed as they were not in good shape at all - that must have been very painful.  We are hoping her eye can be saved, but we'll have to wait and see.  We'll keep you up to date.
Marla

"Marla" came to us on May 13, 2021 from Hartland as part of a colony of cats that was growing in size.  As with most colonies, there was not enough food and more than enough poor health.  Marla needed medical help badly.   Her left eyeball was ruptured and could not be saved.  The eyelids of her right eye were partially fused together, she was underweight and had stomatitis and severe periodontal disease which will require her to lose many, if not all, of her remaining teeth.  Between the pain of her eyes and her teeth, she must have been in agony.  Marla was born about May 13, 2019 and is a beautiful grey and white little girl.

Please spay and neuter your pets!

Marla needs help, and that's exactly what she will get.  She will receive all necessary medical care, will be spayed, fully vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV and treated for all parasites.  Marla was named after legally blind Olympic medalist Marla Runyan who won four gold medals at the 1992 Summer Paralympics.  Our Marla will also adapt and overcome her disability - we are sure of it!  With all the love and medical support she will now receive, she will be fine.

Donations to help with her medical care are greatly appreciated.

"Gaia" came to DunRoamin' from a colony of cats near Hartland.  Born about January 1, 2020, she was not in good shape.  Her left eye required enucleation (removal), and she will also require dental work in the next few weeks, once she's strong enough.  On top of these medical issues, she was found to be diabetic.  She's had a hard go, but that all ends today.

Gaia tested negative for FIV and FeLV and was spayed.  She will require supportive care, a diabetic diet and insulin to regulate her system to ensure that she grows strong and healthy but she is doing very well and she's anxious to leave vet care and be a family kitty.  She is a beautiful little girl who is grateful to be warm and safe.  Now that she's starting to feel better, she is showing her real personality - and it's a winner!  She hopes for a loving home very soon.  Her insulin injections are really no big deal, are very inexpensive and she is SUCH a sweet little girl!  Once she puts on a little weight, she will be very grateful to have a family of her very own.
