My cat, female, 8, was diagnosed Thursday with diabetes. She was at the vet all day Friday getting her blood tested every couple of hours. Since then I have been testing her blood before each meal and have switched her to diabetic food, a wee bit of kibble but mostly wet. Her numbers seem good, 16 or there abouts before her meals. Still getting the hang of drawing that little bit of blood and not sticking myself or getting a error reading because not enough blood.
