    this describes my cat TOO accurately, I literally thought he was just a hungry cat and didnt see the other signs as weird just as his personality and what he likes 😭 I reallly hope he'll be okay

    My cat ‘s GLU is a little high . She is underweight and eats a lot , the vet told me to give her a low protein food 15% or less. but you’re saying high protein? What do I do ? . how can I get her to gain weight? + she had a tumor removed 7 months ago it was spreading in the tissues so they had to take some of the tissue out which is why she is probably extra skinny . Can Someone help me ?

    My cat has diabetes. He had cancer and had to have a leg amputation, and though he is headstrong and does still get about, this have probably exacerbated his condition.

    Took him to the vets and they did a blood fructose test and came back 705, at this level, insulin is a must.

    I have altered his diet completely, extremely high protein, organic chicken that I cook, and certain high quality cat foods (though I add more protein) and three weeks later, his blood fructose test was 657. Still extremely high, but heading in the right direction.

    Working with one of the top nutritionists over here (a friend) and they have been putting a lot of time in as this has to be adapted (different requirements) for a cat and not a person.

    I will come back in a few weeks and give his next blood fructose level.

    HiThere are veterinarians who say that feathers for human use are not suitable for cats or dogs because they have different skin. What do you think of that? Does your kitty absorb insulin without problems? When you massage it, there is nothing left on your fingers? and I see that you also withdraw the needle quickly, is it not necessary to wait a few seconds? What measures is the needle?Kind regards

    My cat was just diagnosed . I’m not sure how old she is. She’s a rescue . How blood sugar was 300. She was hungry all the time . Saturday she started refusing food . I thought it was , because we put her on a new food . She lost weight very fast . Today is Tuesday . The vet says she will have to be on insulin the rest of her life . He sold me some high price dry food . Said , nothing about can food . I hope what you say is trys, and it dan be controlled by dirt abs exercise . She was an out side cat until 4 months ago . Never has any issues . She did gain a lot of weight . He gave her a insulin shot , and she perked up . She still not eating much . Help

    My black cat is at 300 glucose not over weight soft food gave him diarrhea and it was vet recommended soft food so what now!!! I put him back on his dry food “core” which is high protein low carb but his sugar level just won’t go down!

    Maybe the reason it’s mostly male orange housecats ending up this way is because Garfield normalized (or even popularized) orange cats being fat and lazy, and owners may be less likely to take action in time due to their perception.
