I did not have any energy this mornin'. I would not eat so MC didn't give me an insulin shot.

The tests came back FIP positive but the count is very low so the vet does not see that as a problem because many cats test that way.

MC came home at lunch with prescription can food. She finally found me hidin' in the bathroom. I just licked the food and would not drink water. My third eyelids were up. Do ya’ll think this is normal? Is my body simply adjusting?

MC called the vet and he said to bring me in.

The vet has me on fluids. MC is about to fall to pieces.

Please pray for me...

We are purring our hearts out for you and your momcat too. I am sure it is going to take several tries to get the insulin regulated, don't give up! Love you, Norman

The vet just called. Platey kidneys have elevated ketones. A life threatening condition called DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) when severe lack of insulin causes the body to break down fat to use as energy creating ketones which build up in the blood and urine – the cat is literally metabolizing (breaking down) its own body fat and muscle to survive. He is getting fluid drip of glucose and electrolytes. Left untreated, ketoacidosis (DKA) can quickly lead to coma and death. Platey is where he needs to be now. Someone will be with him all night. The vet will call me during the night with any dramatic changes. The vet was optimistic but cautious, hoping it is early enough to save Platey.

Prayers for him please...
