What can you tell me about taking care of a diabetic cat?
Hi, everyone. My kitty was diagnosed with diabetes this past Saturday. It came up on another ? but so as not to hijack that thread, I'm posting a new question.
I have been all over FelineDiabetes.com but would love to hear anyone's experiences. My hope is that Wendell (the cat) will go into remission. Mostly, I'd like to know:
Do you test your cat's blood glucose? IF so, what kind of monitor do you use?
I live alone with no one around to give him his insulin in my absence. If I miss a dose by a few hours (he's on 2x a day, 12 hours apart), will that kill him? I imagine there will be some days when I have to work late.
What do you feed your kitty?
Any other advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
