At about 7 years old, Cider was diagnosed with diabetes in her previous home and it went untreated for about a year. Her health significantly declined during that time where she became unable to walk and had severe mats in her fur. Her previous owner decided to euthanize her, however the vet felt that Cider could be saved and given another chance at life. The vet contacted Our Companions for assistance and we welcomed Cider to our Sanctuary at 8 years old in 2023.

Since her arrival, Cider is thriving here with us! She had a benign lump in her neck that was removed and wore sweaters to cover the incision as it healed. Once that lump was removed and her diabetes being monitored, she began to have more pep in her step and seems to be feeling so much better! She takes regular walks in the hallway to build up more strength. Our Cat Team also found that she prefers rugs to our hard floors, therefore the team put a rug in her room to enjoy and relax on! You’ll often find Cider giving out head butts to her friends and purring up a storm! We’re still managing her health and look forward to providing Cider all the support she needs to thrive!
