    Junior is a tabby cat. Approximately 12 years old. I found him outside and one day he came to me very sick and I felt bad and took him to the doctors and they informed me that he had feline leukemia. This was back in 2005. I then decided to adopt him and keep him as an indoor cat. He was given medication and antibiotics and two years later he was retested and was leukemia free. Once again a year after that he was retested and was negative. He had been healthy since then with the exception of developing Crystal in his urine. He has been on veterinary prescription moderate SO dry food since then. He was diagnosed with diabetes on 11/26/16. He had a blood glucose of 519 and urine glucose of 1000. They prescribed him insulin a week later. By that time I had done extensive research and I immediately switch his food from very high carb dry food to low carb wet food. I have also home tested his glucose and they have been normal enough to hold off ok the insulin despite incompetent veterinary advise to still administer 2 units of insulin on a cat with home glucose of 130. About two weeks ago I switch him to fancy feast chicken classic and he doesn't really like it much. I am still playing with his food. Adding tuna. Parmesan cheese. Few dry kibbles and lastly fortiflora to get him to eat a bit more because he doesn't care for the wet food. So far daily monitoring glucose at home with wonderful tips from the people here that care so much for our little ones.
