Lady, a 9 year old cat, had stayed at the shelter for nearly a year. Afraid that she wouldn't find a home, Spokane Humane Society started a campaign on Facebook to help Lady find a home.
Spokane Humane Society wrote on Facebook: "Lady has been at the Spokane Humane Society since 5/13/2013; nearly a year! She is about 9 years old and was surrendered because her owners didn't feel like they had enough time for her. At first Lady was Miss Sassy Pants with other cats as well as with people. The longer she has been here the more she has mellowed out, but when Lady started acting lethargic and not sassy at all we knew something was wrong.
Our Vets looked at her on March 13th and determined that she was diabetic, but they thought it was caught very early and were hopeful that she would be easy to regulate. It took us awhile to get her glucose levels regulated, but now that she is back to her normal self we are hoping to find an adoptive home or rescue to help her stay regulated and find her a place (other than the shelter) to call home.
Nowadays the only time we really see Lady’s attitude come out is when we try to make her do something she doesn't want to do (like draw blood), though moving her to a new environment might bring out her sassy side once again. Most of the time Lady enjoys talking to you, following you, sitting on your lap, and giving you kisses. She also (as you can see in the picture) likes to have a cat tower handy at all times."
The photo has gotten over 20k shares on Facebook. A week after Lady's story went out, she was headed to her new home. "We're very excited to announce that Lady (inside the carrier) our long time kitty with diabetes was just adopted!"
