Hi, my name is Jessica. In June of this year I found a mama (about 11 months old) and her 3 (3 month old) kittens. Since then we have learned that the mama, Cricket, has diabetes. Her BG at the vet's office was 700. She is taking Vetsulin but we are looking to change to Lantus since it is leaving her system too quick. These message boards have really helped me keep my sanity. We had hoped to rehome her and her kittens since we already had 5 cats with various health issues but the kittens are so bonded so we wanted to keep them together and now, with Cricket's diagnosis, it looks like she's ours for life. Luckily, she's really the sweetest cat in our home. I think the biggest stressor is finding an inexpensive and healthy diet for them all.
