    Mally is 19 years old today and has been sugar free for a little over five years. I am fortunate that I was able to get her diabetes under control about four months after she was diagnosed, but I couldn't have done it without the help of all the wonderful people in the Lantus forum. I am forever grateful to all of the people who selflessly give their time to help others with sugar kitties. Thank you!

    Mally is as healthy as can be, although I do wonder at times if a bit of senility has set in. Every now and then she'll meow and howl until someone picks her up and holds her for a while. Brushing her also helps to calm her down. I think she just gets confused sometimes but, she knows exactly where the litter box is and has never had an accident outside of it.

    When Mally was first diagnosed with diabetes, I started doing a lot of research on cat nutrition. After finding that I knew much less than I should, I was prompted to research dog nutrition as well. I had five cats at the time and they were all switched to a wet food diet. The dogs were taken off of Science Diet and put on better dry food. And now, I have several senior animals in my house. Mally is 19 and the other cats, Prue and Wiilow are 12 and 11. Two of my large breed dogs are 14 and the other is 8 1/2. We just added a fourth cat to the zoo last weekend - Zoe is 9 weeks old and she is just way too cute.

    Mally is my daughter's cat and she's had her since the day she was born. Mally's mother, Gypsy, was my daughters first cat and Mally was the first one born in a litter of three kittens. I find it amazing that she is 19 years old today. Happy Birthday, Mally!!!

    I've held off posting this for a while as I tend to be quite superstitious and was afraid to "jinx" it, but, here goes...
    Goof has gone OTJ! It's been almost 5 wonderful weeks! I still test a few times a week and his BG runs in the 90's and low to mid 100-teens,
