The kitty in this avatar has been treated for diabetes for the last year or two. Well, since we left that crappy apartment for a house, she’s been crying and yesterday was walking around like a drunk & missing the litter box.
Well, I guessed hypoglycemia and the only time this has happened put corn syrup on her gums. Vet said her glucose was normal, don’t give her insulin if she doesn’t eat.
She’s eaten a little, but not this morning. She usually lets the food (from fridge, a special diabetic cat food), warm up a bit before eating.
I simply don’t have money to keep pumping into labs and vet care, and maybe this is prolonging the inevitable. She’s been a great little friend, even snuggling up with me when I was at my sickest, but she’s struggling and, at 13, it may be time to relieve her pain.
Don’t think I’ll get another pet. Much as I love ‘em & would like to, I understand those who don’t keep ‘em for various reasons.
