Diabetes

    Newer Older

    I just found out that my sweet Uno has diabetes. I was horrified, to say the least, and I'm still quite a bit emotional about it (he is my baby, after all).

    However, I have been assured by the vet — as well as internet sites — that feline diabetes is NOT a "death sentence," and a diabetic cat can live a long and happy life with proper diet, etc.

    He's going in Monday morning for a full test to see how bad his diabetes is, and depending upon the numbers, we may even start an insulin regimen — which I'm also assured is easy and painless. Hopefully, though, we can control everything with his diet.

    Please PLEASE say a prayer for my little guy, that we can find a way to manage this disease without him having to suffer. The vet assured me we weren't at a critical stage now, so that's good — but I'm still scared for him.

      Oh, I'm so sorry to know about it, but I'm sure Uno will be a brave boy and he'll do the right diet and take the right medicine... and he'll be with you for more x more great years !!! At least I hope so, of course !!! =(^.^)=

      A superb portrait of Uno. I'm devastated by the news, too.
