Cat of the Week: Artemis

Julia D Cat of the Week


Artemis needs a special foster home. This sweet senior girl was just diagnosed with diabetes and asthma. This combination is extremely hard to treat as the medications can cancel each other out. She needs a foster home who can monitor her closely, provide the medical care she needs – medications and insulin injections – and supply her with the love and care she deserves. She will also need frequent vet check ups as we work to get her diabetes under control.

Artemis is a confident, older girl who still has some spunk and some love to share. She loves people and loves to get attention from her foster mom and the occasional play session, in between naps of course. Artemis and her sister Cassie were surrendered to a shelter in Eastern Iowa last year before making their way to Last Hope. Artemis would love to find a new forever home of her own with a family to love! She does great with kids and after a little time to warm up has done well with other cats.
