Greetings from Miro the SpaCat &

Diabetes SpokesCat

*eyes blinking*  “Huh? What? Oh. . . whoops, hello everyone – I’m afraid you caught me cat napping!  Please allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Miro and I live with Mademoiselle (who we all know is pushing Madame status!)”

As you might imagine, I’m a very lucky girl to live with M’mselle – since she is pretty much a beauty hound (no offense to the pups) and health junkie – she passes all of her tips and tricks on to me.  I like to hang out with her in the morning while she paints her face with all types of creams and colors.  (She thinks I’m being sweet, but really I’m trying to steal her secrets, ha!)

We even have a boutique where we show the pretty things she can’t resist spoiling me with & how we’ve decorated our house with my creature comforts room by room:

Goodies for the Modern Glamourpuss on Amazon

She also is a big sucker since I’m her first cat, and she takes me with her even to the cafe or vacations and the spa of course.  Our last trip was to Hilton Head where I made friends with an alligator!

Fighting Feline Diabetes

But though you may think all we do is live it up around here, we’ve actually got an important message.  A very serious disease can happen to you when you don’t eat right, move too little and get stressed out.  It’s called diabetes and yes though you may think it only affects humans – it can and does happen to us . . .  and it’s rising everyday in all pets.

So since mademoiselle is so busy with the human diabetes fight – I’ve volunteered a few hours of napping to rile cats and people up to help find a cure and prevent feline diabetes.  I’ve got some scientific articles and research coming soon.  But for now, I’ve got a plan. . .

The Ellen Show Project

Mademoiselle has decided a great way to let our humans know we may be headed for diabetes and to teach them some ways to prevent it is getting me on that big black moving picture frame on the wall.  I watch it enough I figure so why not?  The only thing is it’s supposedly like impossible to get attention unless you’re Morris the Cat or that scoundrel Mickey Mouse. But hey if a mouse can score some airwaves, then so can I.

So listen close team this where you come in.  We’re asking every cat and human we know to tweet at The Ellen Show on twitter to put me on.  I promise to give you a great big Meow Out when we get on the show.  All you have to do is tweet just like this:

@theellenshow shout out @spacat on air to raise awareness diabetes is rising in pets & can often be prevented.

I’ll be starting my blog here soon, but til then:

Wanna know what’s it like to be a pampered puss?

Does your Mademoiselle need a push to posh up your life?

Want updates as we duke it out with diabetes?

Lemming my feline fitness and beauty tips?

Need to know about Kitten lovin’ resorts & spas?

Then follow me (and all the other twittens!) on twitter:

    my kitty became diabetic when she was nine years old, so feline diabetes is close to my heart. I’ve also fostered four more diabetic cats since her death. I wish you luck getting the word out about it and that it is not a death sentence.

      Thank you so much Connie – and how awesome that you’ve fostered four more. Hugs and lets continue fighting the battle, hopefully they will find a cure one day. Candy
