Hi everyone! Salem is a 16-year-old black cat who was recently diagnosed with diabetes on the 16th of February after going for an eye infection. It seems that she had for a big majority of her life. But because she wasn't brought to vet regularly for the 11 first years of her life(she lived at my Mother-in-law's), it was never diagnosed. She got fat after her accidental pregnancy when she escaped the house for a couple of weeks before she got spayed. She is a fat, lovable kitty who is always hungry, and adores my Boyfriend to pieces! Salem also tolerates our other cat, who gets a bit too jealous when we give her attention. Even though we gave him ton and half just a few minutes earlier She is now on Lantus, and we give her 3-4 IU per day. She eats Purina DM, but we are going to switch in the next week to Friskies. DM is way too expensive for our student budget. Her infection turned out to be a cherry eye, which is unusual for a cat, and even more unusual in an older cat.
