So on Saturday I went to the vet to get more and saw a note on the door saying they were closed for the holiday weekend Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon (must be nice), and had the VCA number as the emergency number. VCA said without Fluffer's records (and the copies I have of all his tests aren't considered proof, nor are the receipts for his medicine) they couldn't prescribe Prozinc. Of course. But they'd be happy to for an emergency vet visit and curve and all the lab work, you know, for a few thousand dollars. I said no. I don't have that kind of cash and I'm not falling for what's clearly a scam at the expense of our pets. It's insulin. Not heroin. I'm getting a script after this. This is not happening again. So we decided to watch and wait and see if it got really bad. There was nothing we could do about it either way. He was his normal self all day. Sunday: his normal self, but seemed happier. Monday he was running around chasing the younger kitty Luna playing tag, apparently. He even "chased the dot". Laser. Tuesday, he was great all day. Aside from making his usual mess of the litter box. He now needs a bath. I checked his glucose last night and it was 489. But he also grazes and used to be a 24 pound piggy before he got Diabetes. Now he's a 12 pound piggy. And I know a lot of you have had success with wet food or high protein food, but he refuses to eat it. He dropped to 8 pounds when we tried weaning him off of it. That's around the time the vet recommended putting him to sleep last winter and I said no, that should really be his decision, not mine. Anyway, aside from the high test, if I didn't know any better I'd say he's fine. He's wobbly, but he's been that way for about a year and a half now. One of our beds is really high. So high I have carpeted steps on one side that are like 24 inches tall for him to get on and off easier. The other day my wife was in bed and out of nowhere Fluffer jumped up on the bed on the side without the steps. He also prefers jumping down to using the steps. He still uses his window perch, and he's up and down both flights of stairs multiple times every day. I made it a little easier with litter boxes on two floors (no room on the top floor) and food and water on both floors (except on the garage level since it's hard enough to keep track of these things). Basically I was trying to make it so he could stay on the main level if he wanted to and have everything there, or use the basement litter box or come up here and have food and water by the bedrooms. He likes spending time with us, and he still goes down two flights to greet me when I come home. He'll be 15 in like 5 months. So, I guess I want to know how is he not crashing? On the few occasions we screwed up his shot times, because it's really hard when you both work full-time to keep a set schedule every day, he'd be messed up for a few days. He also has this cauliflower ear that's always getting infected I have to clean just about twice a day. So much work this guy, but I love him, so I don't mind. How is he not crashing and why has his mood and energy improved/increased the last few days? I'm going to get more insulin today and will probably start him off lower than before, but could he be beating this on his own? Luna, my ten year old kitty hasn't aged a day since she was a kitten. Just last night she flew up the stairs, onto the windowsill, onto a table, and jumped through the air. It was really funny. For no other reason than she's a cat. I tried several times uploading pictures but the limitations on this thing are ridiculous.
