George is like “a father from another mother”
kind of adopted the daddy role
ever since we adopted Max (and his sister Maya)
as kittens 5 yrs ago…
this is typical of these two,
curled up like two parts of a whole,
yin & yang style,
warms me up
from the inside out,
watching these two love each other up…
Cat Soul Mates ~ if there is ~ these two are it for each other ;)
On a different note,
we recently had Max diagnosed with feline diabetes 2/1.
As most would do, I dived in deep, did crash learning about this disease.
We learned, through research, and experience, with changing to a low carb diet – from dry food now to wet food, Wellness 3oz (all 3 of our cats are on it now too) and a course of slow acting insulin, Lantus – we got Max into balance inside of 2 weeks and haven’t had to give any insulin for last 2 weeks!
If you have a cat – I strongly advise reading about their diet and the dangers
dry food/high carb diets. It’s amazing how behind the vets are in terms of knowledge, we had to learn this on our own. I’m working on getting Max’s story out there and providing my vet with information to pass onto their clients w/feline diabetes.
I’m still testing Max every day to ensure his glucose counts are good and stay there. For someone like myself so squeamish about needles, it shortly became so easy. And Max is now seeking me out when it’s time for a test – LOL – he purrs his way through it ;) It does help he gets a treat afterward, but still – who knew??
We were advised by our vet, give him 2 ml insulin twice a day, for 7 – 10 days, then bring him in for a “curve day” (which means the vet would be testing blood glucose every 1-2 hours for 12 hour period). Never instructed to get a monitor and test his glucose count. We learned from doing our research to NEVER give insulin w/o checking BG count.
