Well it's back to trying to change Rupie's diet. Trying to get him completely off kibble or Whiskas. Thankfully he likes wet cat food. Always has but had a preference for Friskies Turkey and Gravy. That gravy was the best bit. We are now giving him wet cat food (IAMS Perfect Portion Grain Free) and have been for a while but now give it first before any kibble. We start off early morning with a tablespoon or less of cat food, and a crushed Zobaline pill. We also bought him more Purina Pro Plan Overweight Management. This is what the vet originally recommended when he was diagnosed. I hope he will not have any digestion problems with the re-introduction of Purina PP OM. I know his neuropathy will not improve (even with Zobaline) without getting his blood sugar down. I was encouraged this morning to read that going from kibble to an all wet canned cat food diet will produce loose movements. In the past I became alarmed when I noticed it. I freaked. Now I know this is normal. However I am still withholding all fishy pates. I know he is sensitive to it. One concern I have ...Rupie sometimes still gorges with kibble. Even the Purina Pro Plan stuff. He at times reminds me of my son's dog, and wondered if I didn't need a special feeding bowl for him. Is gorging a sign of diabetes...elevated blood sugar perhaps?? ...or just a cat that loves his grub. He always was a member of the clean plate club. He does not do this with wet canned cat food. He is more reserved. More respectable. Takes his time. Rupie's neuropathy is quite bad. And that is distressing. He walks both on his hocks and elbows. But my oldest daughter thinks she sees some signs of improvement. Last night she and my son saw him standing up or walking differently. We all thinking he walks lighter now. and this morning I saw him standing briefly to drink from the tub tap. But he has a long way to go. He eats lying down and lies in the litter box. he has been on Zobaline for about a week now. Diabetes is a dance. One step forward, one step back. Believing there are better days ahead for our Roops.
