If anyone read my previous thread about my Lucky getting diagnosed with diabetes, here's how it's going so far. Rather than hospitalizing him for 'round the clock blood sugar checks, our vet opted to just have us give him 2 units of insulin twice a day after he's eaten and that should improve how he feels quite a bit. He's just been laying around alot and drinking and peeing TONS! I just gave him his first injection and although he squirmed and whined, I successfully got it in him. The shot itself is not painful, Lucky just despises to be 'HELD AND FORCED TO DO SOMETHING". HE is the boss, and WE OUGHT TO KNOW THAT BY NOW!!! So glad he's going to be feeling better. I've been so depressed thinking we were going to be losing him soon. He's Only 13....just a KITTEN! :geek:

His 2nd shot went even better. He was laying down and I did it without having to make him move. I don't think he even knew I did it! He's acting a little better already. They say sometimes it goes into remission for awhile, but most always comes back.

Well, I've been buying all kinds of expensive food for him that's low in carbs, etc. and I thought I'd just cook him some chicken for a snack, and the little stinker won't even eat it! CATS!!!

Whenever WE have chicken of any form, he's always on the table waiting for HIS portion. He just about eats Bill alive when he fixes a fried chicken frozen dinner when coming home from work on 2nd shift. I've had 9 cats in my lifetime, and they've all been "normal" until these 3! They're all psychotic! I had to fight him for his shot this evening. He was in one of his stubborn, nasty moods. I'm scared to death he'll have a low. In that case, I have to put Karo syrup in his mouth. BTW, I'm diabetic, too, so at least I understand about all that stuff!
