COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Meet Grandpa Carl! Grandpa Carl has lived his entire life outside as a community cat.
He is 10-15 years old. He is diabetic and FIV+ but can still be with other kitties (he loves other cats and kittens).
For a long time, Grandpa Carl has not known the comfort of a soft bed (he’s used to sleeping on the cold ground) or has had regular high-quality meals and medications tailored to his diabetic needs.
Grandpa Carl needs daily insulin injections twice a day which are super easy to do. An established veterinarian is a must for Grandpa Carl as he will need regular check-ups to make sure he’s healthy.
For more information, visit Pawmetto Lifeline Animal Shelter at 1275 Bower Pkwy in Columbia or give them a call at 803-465-9150.
Be sure to tune in every Friday morning on WIS News 10 Sunrise for “Furry Friends Fridays!”
Via SKYPE, we’ll talk with a knowledgeable staff member at Pawmetto Lifeline about shelter operations and feature many more lovable and ready-to-be-adopted pets like Lassie!
