I am Grandma Bea, big animal lover. Learned 4 days before Christmas my Bashful age 11, torti, very afraid of people, has diabetes. Found this site thru facebook and want to learn as much as I can to help my Bashful and I get thru this. I have 3 other cats all okay. Bashful has not used a liter box for a very long time. Does this have anything to do with the disease and will she ever go back to using it if she gets better? I have newspaper down for her to use and she always goes to the paper to do her personal stuff.
