Diary of a Ruddy Aby

Update on "Sugar Kitty"

I had unexpected news at the vet this week, things are still a bit difficult for me. I'm still going to the vet weekly and we're still trying to regulate my insulin dose. Last week my bloodsugar was too low, not dangerously low, but low enough I had to have Karo. My dose was reduced to 3 units twice daily. Well, again this week it was low and I had to have Karo, ugggggggg. I spit out enough that I had a sticky chest and face, being sticky is not a good feeling :(
The good news is that I'm down to a dose of 2 units 2xday, Dr. P thinks with my change in diet and weight loss I may be one of those kitties who correct themselves and get off insulin or I'll be on a low dose. I hope I'll soon be regulated and can stop going down the mountain weekly.
Today it was very cold. So Mom put the fleece and pillow from my carrier into the dryer and warmed it for me so I'd be warm and cozy for the trip.
I feel better and sometimes play and act like a kitten. All the good care I've had and the purrs and prayers are helping me heal.
Hugs and purrs to my friends.
Love, Gentleman Jack

What a thoughtful Mom you have, Jack! I do hope you are able to correct yourself. Mom's long-ago cat Putney was able to do that with weight loss and a diet change. He was 16 when diagnosed with diabetes and lived for five more years! We're sending lots of purrs for continued good news.

That would be great if you did not have to take any more insulin! Even going to a very low dose, that is awesome! ah and nothing like warm blankies!
