Mr. Bear is my big beautiful black cat who I paint often.
He has diabetes and takes 2 shots of insulin daily which has been working
great. BUT, it's a nasty disease and is starting to take it's toll. Mr.
Bears kidneys are starting to fail and at 16 years old time is running out

When I first got Mr. Bear, he weighed about 5 ounces. We got
him and his brother Andouille, a spicy little orange tabby who died suddenly at
the age of 5, at the local animal shelter.  The lady told me they would be
euthanized because they were to little to be in the shelter, meow meow, just
call me their new Mama.  Home we went with the new little flea bags, there
were more fleas than kittens. So home we went and de bugged our new babies. 
Next we started feeding them with little bottles  and special kitten milk
from the vet and they grew and grew.  It's amazing how a little food and a
lot of love make kittens grow.

Mr. Bear goes back for another check next Friday so I will
update his condition then.

Thank you for all the emails of encouragement and the prayers.

They help more than you can ever know.

Meows and purrs for tonight,
