My name is Ruthann and I have a senior cat (found as a stray in 2003 at about age 3) named Lynx. He was diagnosed with Diabetes in September, 2014. My vet had him regulated with just a special diet for a little over a year. In the past few months he has begun to decline. I am now using insulin (.4 units) twice daily. He doesn't like the shots and hides from me. This has created more problems because I didn't have time to move furniture and to chase him all over the house before work. He almost died and I now have to keep him in his own room. He is eating well and putting on a bit of weight again, but his water consumption has increased again. I'm starting to feel his quality of life is deteriorating and I don't know how much longer he has left. Has anyone experienced the stages of Diabetes in a senior cat? How much time do I have left with him? I'm doing the best I can and what my vet tells me to do. I just don't want to be selfish and prolong his life if he is suffering. Thanks for any advice and info. offered.
