Pumpkin's Bio

Hi there! My name is Pumpkin and I am in search of my furever home.

I have a bit of a tragic backstory. I was dumped at a veterinarian’s office by my previous owner in terrible condition. I was in severe pain, hyperglycemic from my untreated diabetes, and overweight.  Because of all of this, the humans here at Pets Alive Niagara spent a long time getting me back into good enough shape to be adopted out to a loving family.

Because of my painful past, I am more on the submissive and quiet side, as I am still learning to trust humans again. But despite this, I am super affectionate and love to cuddle once I get to know you. 

I love other animals and would definitely benefit from having  that sort-of companionship. Supervision will especially be necessary, since I am less likely to speak up if I’m being treated unfairly. 

Since I am diabetic, I am on a special diet to both help me lose weight and keep my blood sugar leveled out. I cannot have regular cat food, so I must be fed separately from any animal friends. I am not on insulin at this time, but my family will be asked to book an appointment for me with their veterinarian immediately in order to discuss monitoring my blood sugar at home via blood tests.

I would thrive in a home with a family that is calmer with lots of love to provide me with, and one that is able to take all the necessary steps to keep my diabetes under moderation.

Pumpkin's Adoption Fee | $149.00

The feline adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescuing, such as vetting, food, kitty litter and other expenses.

Prior to adoption, cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and given flea treatment. In short, they receive any necessary treatment.

Why We Love Fostering

  • It has been so lovely to have an animal with us again. We have noticed a boost to their mood. It is great to be able to open our door to an animal in need, it is very rewarding watching the kitty make progress with us and coming out of their shells. Pets Alive have been very helpful with any issues, and we never feel like we are alone if we need help.
