Benya Marcello

Diagnosis: Diabetes

Amount needed per month: $165

Neutered: Yes

Volunteer case worker: Leslie

Benya is an 11 year old LBK (little black kat) newly diagnosed with diabetes. Benya was originally accepted as an emergency case because he needed hospitalization due to seriously unregulated diabetes. IMOM pledged $500 and our wonderful angels came through with the balance needed to get Benya the emergency treatment he needed. (This thread was moved from our emergency forum, so the posts under this one begin at the time of Benya's hospitalization.)

Benya is home now and feeling much better, but his dad, who is on permanent disability, needs help with Benya's ongoing needs. Benya's dad loves him very much, saying "Benya is the only family I have in the world, and I am the only family he has." To read more about this special kitty, please visit his PIN page: http://www.imom.org/pin/dpf/benya-marcello.htm.

If Benya's story touches your heart and you'd like to make a donation, you can do so at http://www.imom.org/donation/online.htm. Please indicate that your donation is for DPF - Benya Marcello. No amount is too small, and one-time donations as well as monthly sponsorships are very much appreciated. Hopefully as Benya's diabetes becomes regulated his monthly costs will drop, but for now his vet (who has been very responsive about providing IMOM with information) wants to keep close tabs on him.

If you do make a donation to Benya, please consider making a token donation to our Operating Fund as well so that we can continue to cover our website and administrative expenses.

Thank you to all who have already donated to Benya, to those who are considering a donation, and to all who are keeping Benya and Ralph, his dad, in their thoughts.

Thanking all of the monthly donors to IMOM for the assistance that has been offered to Benya up to this point.

Angels - please think of Benya if you are planning to donate today. We need to raise $573 so he can continue his treatment and get his diabetes regulated.

Hang in there Benya - LBK's are real special and I know the Angels won't let you down.

Why thank you Aunt Celia. You are my favorite Aunt Celia! I was just coming to update Benya's thread with the funds raised so far. Your post made me and my mom smile.

Welcome to IMOM Benya and dad. You certainly found the right place when you came upon IMOM. I have only been here a couple of weeks, but have found that the people that visit, live, are addicted to, stop by, are a remarkable bunch. Looks like you are going to hit AFR at lightning speed. Way to go Angels!

Welcome Benya and dad. I was so glad to see the funds have been raised so fast. Miracles and magic happen here. What a handsome boy Benya is. How did you come by his name? Does he do anything special to wake you up in the morning? My kitty Tyson thinks that when I crawl in bed its time for snuggling and he lays by me and gives me kisses on my nose. I never plan on falling right to sleep when I get into bed with him around. My Kali is finally coming to for a good night pet. Can't wait to hear more about Benya.

Hello, everyone and thank you for your support and warm welcome, Benya's name comes from his fathers given name, derived from the Ukrainian origins.

Benya loves to jump into bed at any given moment and tickle my face with his whiskers, while purring by my side.

Lately, I have been feeling lonely but at the same time I feel a great sense of relief that Benya is getting the treatment he deserves.

I would like to thank your family for following Benya's story and may God bless you all.

Hello Leslie, I did visit Benya and it seems that he is adjusting very well with the initial treatment. He does seem a little depressed at the moment but I am sure he feels better and by the brighter color of his eyes,he seems much better already.

I would like to say" from the bottom of my heart to all the members at IMOM and the supporters", I could never have done this by my self and I love you all for helping Benya and his dad. God bless you all and thank you for everything.

Love: Ralph & Benya Marcello
