I realized I haven’t updated on the Claire situation since May, when I learned she was sick as hell again. I switched her to hypoallergenic cat food and got her insulin dosage back up to normal (1/100th of a cc twice a day) and after a month, I took her in for blood tests. The result: HIGHER BLOOD SUGAR THAN EVER. seriously cat, what is up with you??!! The vet recommended upping her insulin dosage slightly, so now she’s on 1½ /100th of a cc twice a day, and I have to take her in again at the end of this month for more tests.
Now, this is all very annoying and costly, but the most annoying thing I’ve been dealing with re: my diabetic cat is the people. I don’t mean the staff at the veterinary clinic, I mean the people who say stuff like “Have you considered euthanasia?” OH SURE, WHY DON’T I JUST KILL MY PERFECTLY HAPPY CAT FOR THE SAKE OF MY OWN CONVENIENCE??? Sure she has diabetes, but she’s not bothered about it, so why does she deserve to die? I just don’t get people sometimes.
