Healthy as a Kitten
For Whisker’s on Wednesday we have our latest Faygo fiasco.
This poor gentleman is about 18 years old. I say about because when I adopted him they told me he was 2. The vet said more like 8 and he’s lived with me at least 10 years. About 6 years ago, he bacame a an insulin dependant diabetic. Well, that meant two a day shots for the last 6 years and he did well. The problem happened about 2 weeks ago. We found him in diabetic shock. I got him stable with Karo syrup laced tuna. After this event, I popped him right by the vet, where a series of pokings and proddings happened. The verdict? He’s a healthy as a kitten. All his organs are working great and the pancreas has decided to start working as well. Now he does have diminished site and a bit of arthritis, but really he’s healthy.
I’ve been checking him the past two weeks with an blood sugar meter and only one time has he had to have a 1/2 dose of insulin. Other than that his blood sugar has been spot on. Talk about an amazing kitty.
