Hello. My name is Ellie and I have a 7 year old diabetic male cat named Bear. He's one of the loves of my life and was diagnosed with diabetes about 9 months to a year ago. When he was firat diagnosed the vet said he was being resistant to the insulin, so it was gradually increased to where we are today. He is currently on Novalin N and takes 8 units twice a day at 10 am and 10 pm. We started him off on the diabetic dry food from the vet but have recently (about a month ago) switched him to soft food (Fancy Feast Classic). He has been eating half a can twice a day and doing fine. All has been okay until about an hour ago. My stepdad came in to wake my husband and me up around 3:30 am. Bear was sleeping on the pillow beside him and seemed to be scratching at him. He said he was drooling and jerking. I rushed in and found him stretched out and biting the blanket. He wouldn't let go, but I gently pulled it from him. He wasn't stiff so I cradled him and brought him back to our room. His eyes were wide and he was looking back and forth with full head turns (not shaking his eyes). He let out a couple startled cries but calmed down as I pet him. When I laid him on our bed he stumbled forward and couldn't seem to get his feet to work. I continued petting him and gently laid him down. My first thought was a seizure or drop in his blood sugar. While my husband looked online, I got him 1/4 cup of basic hard food (I'm not sure of the brand because it's the stuff my mom gets for her two cats to go with their wet food. I think it may be Meow Mix.). He nearly inhaled it. I placed some water in front of him and he dipped his head quickly, but was startled by water instead of food. His pupils retract slightly in the light and his ears are very waxy (which I noted yesterday). Once he calmed down I pulled him to my chest and he has been laying against me ever since. We don't have a monitor for him (we can't afford it and have used all our medical resources trying to regulate him), but my husband has his monitor. If we check his blood sugat, what levels am I looking for on a human monitor. What could be the cause of all this? He's my heart and soul, my little love. Please help us. **UPDATE** 6:00 am We tested him on the ear with with my husband's One Touch Ultra 2 and it read 53. He was still lethargic and not very responsive to calls (which he normally is). We tried feeding him his normal half a can of Fancy Feast, but he was not interested. Instead, my husband brought him a bowl of the hard cat food he had earlier. He devoured it instantly. We'll try testing again in 30 mintes. Our vet opens at 7:30 am.
