Bootsie, the adoptable cat with diabetes, needs a loving new home

Bootsie needs some extra attention in a calm home environment.

The six-year-old male “tuxedo” cat is a diabetic and needs twice-daily insulin injections, which he currently gets in a foster home.

“His fosters said Bootsie gets his insulin injections like a champ though,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow. “The team at the AWLA would be happy to show future adopters how to administer them. Otherwise, his foster family describes him as easy-going, social, a bit of a chatterbox, and he loves to hang out with new people and new cats.”
