Hi all, my 12-year-old kitty was just diagnosed, and I'm hoping it will be temporary. Earlier this year she got a short-term low dose of Prednisolone to clear up some mild asthma. I brought her in for her one-month re-check, having noticed in passing she'd been drinking quite a lot of water, and learned she'd lost half a pound. Diagnosis: diabetes. We're hopeful it will clear up with dietary changes. My wonderful vet suggested this forum, and I'm grateful to have found some support and commiseration.
