Hey all! I seriously love this board and I just want to give you all such praise for all of the kitties you have helped. God bless all of you. If you don't mind - I just want to share my specific situation and get some feedback. I've looked through tons of threads but can't find anything specific. - Overview: Our 14 year old cat, Little One, is obviously diabetic and gets 2 shots per day. We've been dealing with it for years and I've tried many times to home test, but failed. He moves around too much and it is very difficult. As of late some new symptoms are popping up on a more regular basis. - Symptoms: He wants cold places to lay down and wants running water all the time. Really whines for it when it's bad. He looks uncomfortable as he tries to find cooler spots to lay down. He still can run and jump, and even plays with his milk ring from time to time, but as of late he's doing that thing with his back legs similar to diabetic neuropathy. It's not often, but it's occasional. His muscle mass has really decreased recently and even if you pick him up he just feels so light. The muscle mass loss as of late seems to be pretty big. He just looks so tiny now. He's eating regularly and no urination/bathroom issues. In fact, sometimes he even craves treats and what not. But I feel it's happening more regularly as opposed to just 1-2 days a week. - Testing: I'm going to give it another shot Sunday to do a full day of testing . I'm going to try and be strong and do everything I can for him. He just really squirms around and is not an easy cat to get a test strip completed for. Any thoughts on what I can do? I honestly just want to pay a vet tech to come over no matter what it costs but I just cannot google or find information. I feel like if I take him tot he vet to do a full day of testing, it's worthless because he will be stressed. I really want to make life as good for him as I can as long as I can. I think we all go through these panic/worry stages and I'm really focusing on being strong. Any and all advice is welcomed. I'm an extreme n00b who tries to read as much as I can. I read possible B12 but i'm afraid to just randomly start without any assistance from someone who would know. Any other medicine or anything I can buy to help this out?
