HART of Maine - Hamlet

July 23, 2014 (Lisa) Happy news!! Hamlet is in a foster to adopt home!! Yay! Three cheers for Hamlet!

January 10, 2014--Hamlet is a big fluffy boy! Because of his age and weight, he was starting to limp, so he was put on a glucosamine supplement treat that is working beautifully for him and his mobility has improved. Hamlet is currently on 1 unit Lantus BID, and HART will continue to monitor this closely.

November 13, 2013--Hamlet is still currently on one unit of Lantus insulin twice/day. He is such a wonderful boy and loves to be brushed and petted. It doesn't take much to get his deep rumbly purr going! Hamlet recently has gone to the vet to get a couple of his teeth removed as they weren't in good shape, but nothing stops this dear boy from eating well. He is currently eating Wellness grain free canned food and seems to love most flavors. Hamlet is a slightly large boy and HART is currently monitoring his thyroid as his last test came back a little low. Don't hesitate to contact HART to inquire about adoption, transport may be available!


May 8, 2013--This handsome little man is a courtesy post for a diabetic-friendly shelter group in Cumberland, Maine.

Hamlet, a beautiful, friendly, long-haired, 12-year-old, diabetic, boy kitty is a new resident at HART. He has only been with us for a couple of weeks and was a recent intake due to his elderly owner needing to go into assisted living. Unfortunately, they didn't allow her to bring Hamlet along. This hasn't phased Hamlet one bit! From day one, he was sweet as sugar!

However, after a few days following intake, it was noticed that his water bowl was always empty and his litter box was NOT, so his blood sugar was tested and it came back over 400! Hamlet was started on Lantus insulin immediately, dry food was removed from his diet, and is currently on a 1 unit dosage of insulin BID. He accepts his insulin with no fuss and allows us to easily home test his blood sugar. He currently eats a canned only diet of Fancy Feast and really seems to like his new diet.

The only thing missing for this extra-sweet boy is a new forever home! Could it be yours?

HART offers a great deal of support for all new diabetic “parents” and we would be happy to show you how to care for Hamlet in his new home. One of HART's very generous volunteers has offered to donate $100.00 worth of Fancy Feast when you adopt Hamlet!
