Hi. My cat was diagnosed about 6 weeks ago. It was my daughter who noticed how very thin he was and because the cost of a vet wasn't in my budget, I tried everything I could to get him to eat more. I thought maybe my other two cats were not letting him get enough to eat because they are definitely NOT on the skinny side. When that didn't work, we took Sinbad to the vet and found out he had diabetes. I scraped together the $49 for the bag of prescription dry food... Which by the way he won't eat(!) and was given some prescription canned food (won't eat that either). He's so thin, I can feel each and every one of his bones. So I went back to regular food. He's eating again thank God! He's always hungry but he isn't gaining any weight. I need to find out how to get some help with getting him on insulin.... My vet is putting him on Prozinc, but I don't know how much yet. I read some of the posts here and sort of heaved a sigh of relief, though not happiness, when I read that this skinniness and extreme hunger is common in this situation. I'm so grateful for this forum. Maybe I can get some answers.
