Diabetes won't stop Poppet living a lucky life

When Poppet came into care at the National Cat Adoption Centre, it was clear that she would not be with us long.

This little cat was a hit with staff and visitors from the moment she arrived. That she had diabetes did not even seem to post a risk to her finding a suitable new home.

So we were pleased to hear that Poppy has settled in well at her new home and "is eating like a horse". 

We are glad to share an update from her new family, here:

"Poppet joined our family about two months ago. She is nine years old and diabetic.

"We already had a diabetic cat so we knew what it involved, and we felt there was room in our hearts for another.

"Once we had got her home, she settled in really quickly. We already had two other cats and two dogs and she had not been fazed by any of them.

"She`s very inquisitive and within a week she was mingling with the other animals. 

"Diabetic cats don’t have to cost a fortune in vet bills. 

"As long as their condition is under control and stable, you may only need a blood test once or twice a year.

"We are so glad to have Poppet in our lives. She makes us laugh every day with her antics. 

"She is also very affectionate. Once she wanted to get onto my husband’s lap for a fuss, but the dog was in the way - so she sat on the dog instead! 

"We are glad to have been the lucky ones to be Poppet's forever family."
