Max is a 20 year old diabetic kitty that I inherited from my mother-in-law when she passed away in August. I've been working on his health issues since he arrived. I'm looking forward to learning best practices so that Max can have the best quality of life possible. He lived with me four years ago. I transported and took care of him and his brother Sancho (RIP little Sancho) when my mother-in-law moved from Florida back to Connecticut so that she could get my father-in-law into a better nursing home. (It turns out that despite the number of retirees in Florida, their nursing homes are terrible. Go figure.) So I'm not new to working with Maxie, or to testing his blood sugar, but he's four years older now and very frail. But he's a fighter and has a lot of good days to offset his less good days. So there's that. The other cats in the house, (because who has just one elderly cat, right?), range in age from 7 to 17. And we've got the usual mixed bag of health issues from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy to hyperthyroidism/kidney disease, and various other issues that sometimes confound me.
