Hello all! I am a recently diagnosed diabetic cat mom. (See my avatar for my baby boy, his name is Bam.) Bam was just diagnosed yesterday officially and I'm scared and nervous and breaking down a lot. Bam is about 10 years old and has lived with me ever since I rescued him from the wheel well of a friend's car. Well, I've gone through the freaking out with vet visits and costs, and I haven't even been able to get his insulin yet. I'm overwhelmed and scared. I live alone, have awkward work hours and I'm barely paid above minimum wage. How do you all manage It? Bam has been prescribed Lantus and just calling around for pricing at my local pharmacies has my head spinning at the costs! So any help here would be wonderful! I'm seeing a lot of posts that dry food, even the stuff my vet said I should feed him are no good, let alone expensive. Is it really better to switch him to an all wet diet? Also, if any of you have any tips or tricks about how I might be able to get the caked on "boots" of litter off his back paws I would be forever grateful! Please feel free to ask me any questions and I look forward to hopefully many helping tips and tricks from everyone here!!
