Mama thinks I have developed diabetes. Because mama is tight on money right now she's had to supplement some of my dinners with dry food (FancyFeast, DeliCat, Friskies). This has been going on for about the last month and a half to two months. This last week mama has noticed that I have been making frequent stops to the water dish. I keep drinking! Within the last two days I have been acting as if I am depressed. I sleep constantly, I haven't gotten up to greet mama when she comes home, I am not eager to eat, and I am just not playful at all. I haven't been snuggling my family, either. I barely eat. I take 2-3 nibbles of food and thats it. Mama has decided to sacrifice some stuff in order to get me wet food. No more dry for me. This is scaring mama. She read online the symptoms of diabetes. I have almost all of them. Mama doesn't have enough money to take me to the vet. If I get more lethargic and stop eating altogether mama's going to have to go to a loan place to get money for the vet visit. Mama is going nuts. She wants me to eat. She wants me to be happy. She wants me to be healthy! She bought me a toy yesterday, but my sisfur stole it. It's not FAIR! I want the lion toy. Mama's been giving me extra attention even though I don't want attention right now. I need all my friends to pray that i'm going to be okay.

Donut was adopted from the Oshkosh Area Humane Society on 12/12/09. He is a one-of-a-kind cat! He is 18 pounds of pure love. And oddly, he acts like a dog. He is obsessed with belly rubs. He loves to be around people. And doesn't mind dog food. (Sprinkles got into a bag of dog food we had waiting for the Humane Society. Now it is a treat for them.)
