Now, after a vet visit, I found out my favorite kitty - shhh, don't tell the other two - is diabetic. Not life threatening, and not a unique illness, but definitely a schedule changing one, and a dietary one too. The diet part won't be too hard, but the medical part is going to be tough. Insulin shots twice a day, every 12 hours. When I'm out of the house 3 days a week on school days from 6am to 10pm...I'm not sure yet how I'm going to be able to cover that.
Vet says we caught it pretty early; none of the other indicators they usually see are there, so that's a good sign. Drastic change in her food may be enough to control her blood sugar, but they want me to start her on the lowest dosage of insulin along with the food to see what happens. It's possible that she could go into remission...I never knew that could happen with feline diabetes. **Crossing my fingers**

Hope you all are doing well, and for any mom's out there, Happy Mother's Day Sunday.
Bye for now.
