My old cat that my dad has was diabetic.  He was pretty overweight, but once he lost the weight, he got fewer insulin shots until he was completely weaned off of them.

Awww ((hugs)). My friend’s cat is diabetic and she seems just fine. She doesn’t mind the needles at all. She’s very sweet and content 🙂 If my friend and her Darling Husband want to go away, they hire someone to come in and give their kitty her insulin, it’s all run really smoothly for them once they got into the pattern!

I honestly feel for you! When my cat was only 4 years old he started to pee around the house and have alot of accidents. He also started to lose teeth and I could tell it was painful for him to eat. I found out he had diabetees and I had to decide if I was going to give him the meds or if I should put him down. I was super upset about this and the vet told me he was getting alot sicker and wasnt even sure if the meds would help him. We ended up having to put him down and it was super hard for me…I cried for days. The only good thing about this situation is that the day my cat was put down a stray cat showed up at our front door and basically adopted us and is now our new family cat! We named her Pepper and we call her Dr. Pepper cause she help heal us from the sadness we felt about our other cat.

I don’t, but I wanted to send you ((HUGS))!!  Our cat was peeing on our clothes, and it smelled horribly. Turns out, he had crystals in his urine that would have developed into  bladder stones, which require surgery, but luckily we took him in early enough that all’s we had to do was give him antibiotics and some Feline SO wet food. He’s good as new now, and he gets the SO food a couple times a week as a treat (he LOVES it) and we put him on indoor formula that has some of the SO formula in it as well. 

I hope its only temporary, it seems most cases I’ve heard of usually are

Oh poor kitty!

I’m really sorry about all this. I’m a cat person and I would be terribly sad.

@RockStar33:  I am so sorry! I have had cats my whole life and they are such a part of the family. When I was about 4, we had a diabetic cat and unfortunately she passed away soon after. Maybe we caught it too late – I don’t know, I was so young. 

Right now my parents have a 15 year old girl and she has 2 of the big 3 for older cats – thyroid disease and kidney disease. Luckily no diabetes, but all 3 of those are bad. We give her regular medicine and based on her last blood test it’s doing the trick. 

I hope all goes as well with your kitty!

@RockStar33:  the vet will probably have a room&board where your cat can stay if you’re gone for the night & obviously they’ll give her medicine to her then.

I feel for you in this situation…it breaks my heart! I love my cat so much & to think that anyone’s kitty is sick makes me so upset. I wish you the best of luck!
