Thankfully, one of them is right
in Yonkers, New York.” Mango’s
echocardiogram revealed that he
did have mild heart disease, but
he was healthy enough for surgery.
Anjellicle Cats Rescue agreed to do
whatever needed to be done for
Mango. With a social media fund-raising drive in place, the three-day
procedure was scheduled.
“After Mango’s procedure, we
saw immediate improvement,” Sherri
said. Before receiving stereotactic
radio therapy, Mango was getting 28
units of insulin twice per day; now
he’s on six units once a day.
As his health rebounds, Mango’s
bigger-than-life personality continues to emerge. Among the couple’s
menagerie are rescued parakeets.
Their cat, Chance, is obsessed with
his winged flatmates and likes to
try and swing from their cage. One
morning, Sherri saw Chance about to
make his acrobatic move and shouted “No!” while he was in midair.
Mango arrived on the scene just as
Chance made his landing and quickly
bopped Chance’s nose a few times.
“He’s got amazing comedic timing,”
Sherri said. Mango is also a musical
connoisseur. Sherri plays the clarinet, and whenever Mango hears her
playing, he makes a beeline for the
melody where he likes to accompany her with some meowing.
Mango’s journey brings a message of hope to all the older and
sick shelter animals, but he might
not know that — he’s just trying to
keep hitting those high notes with
a family who loves him to pieces.
