Some kitties may feel like they've been thrown to the lions when they first arrive at this big shelter, but not me! I'm Simba, a friendly, eight-year-old orange tabby and white male who came to Paws and Claws from a smaller shelter because they did not have the resources to deal with my special needs. I was diabetic and needed insulin injections twice daily in the past, but now I am in remission. I need to be on prescription DM canned food. I also need to have my blood glucose levels monitored with a glucometer and have periodic vet checks. There is a chance that at some point I will have to go back on insulin. It may take me a minute to warm up, but I'll be happy to soak up a lion's share of petting and loving as soon as I feel comfortable with someone. I'm easygoing and mellow. If you're a lionhearted human being who feels comfortable caring for a special needs cat, I'd love to go home to be your sweet Simba boy.
