I miss him

post #1 of 13

I didn't think that Ryan not being here would affect me as much as it is. We have never been apart from each other and him not being here is killing me.. but I know that he is getting the care he needs right now.

My cat. He was diagnosed with diabetes yesterday and he is at the vet's right now. He will be there for a few days so they can regulate his system.

I had a cat that looked exactly like that and she also was diagnosed with diabetes. I hope for the best for your cat. Just wondering, how old is he/she?

I know how you feel. I had a dog (Lucy) that was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 9, and she spent 2 days at the vet's getting regulated. I was then taught how to give her the injections and I doted on her. Just make sure your vet tells you howto regulate her and the signs of her blood sugar dropping. I could tell in a second just by looking at Lu if she was going to have a "seizure" so I kept syrup onhand, but after about 6 months of regulating her insulin, I figured out when it was at it's strongest (when the bottle was brand new) and when it was at its weakest (when the bottle had 1/4 liquid left) so I had to adjust the amount of insulin I'd give her by that. I also kept a detailed chart as to when a new bottle was started, the cc's given, etc.
By the way, cats can reverse diabetes--dogs can't for some reason. Lucy lived to the ripe old age of 14, but it wasn't the diabetes that did her in--she developed liver cancer.
Please take care and learn as much as you can.

I know it's hard to be apart from your love, cat or person, I'm feeling right now the same thing But I hope to go and visit my gf (not a cat lol) this weekend, not sure if I will make it or not but I'm feeling like I have to

Aww! It is hard when they aren't with you. I was in the hospital for 2 weeks and man, I missed my kitties!

Ryan will be back home in a day or two and feeling a whole lot better! My SIL's cat has diabetes and she has to check his blood sugar once or twice a day and give him insulin. He had actually been doing so well with his diet that they managed to get him just diet controlled, but then she went away for a couple of weeks and one of her sons looked after Fred. Not sure what happened, or if it was just because Fred missed his Meomy, but now he's back on insulin again.
