Christy’s Pet Project

ChristysPetProject_618x50

Christy’s Pet Project” is a weekly sponsored feature at noon each Friday during my show.  It will feature a “Star Pet” from one of many St. Louis area rescue groups, giving them a better chance at placing pets in forever homes.  Not only do I want to find homes for all pets, I want to encourage every pet owner to spay and neuter and join the fight in unnecessary breeding and unintended litters.  I’ve fostered and rescued several animals myself and have personally experienced the struggle for exposure and funding for small rescues.  The goal:  Forever homes for every pet!

This week’s featured pet for adoption:

Marcel the Formerly Diabetic Cat

MarcelMarcel was returned by his adopter after three months. He was overweight and diabetic due to having been free-fed a low quality high carb diet of dry 9 Lives. After only a week or two of being on a high quality low carb canned food diet, Marcel went into remission! With a continued diet of a decent quality low carb canned food and subsequent weight loss, he will likely never return to a diabetic state. He is not on insulin or any other medications.

Marcel is a sweet and laid back 5 year old Maine Coon mix who gets along with everybody and everything (cats, dogs, kids…you name it)! He is looking for a responsible forever home that will provide him with low carb canned food (there are many appropriate types at different price points) and check his glucose on occasion (either at home or at the vet) to make sure his remission continues (which it should, so long as he is not fed dry or high carb food).

Lots of photos of Marcel: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10153200617778642.1073741846.533983641&type=1&l=8ec7dcc480
