Hi everyone. Right before Christmas I took my ten year old cat, Storm into the vet because she had been losing weight and found out she had diabetes. It has been kind of hard for me since then with spending over $600.00, (right before Christmas-goodbye Christmas bonus and all Christmas gifts for friends and family), and learning to give Storm insulin and all the learning regarding our situation. My husband says giving her the shots is harder on me than it is on her,which I am sure is true. This morning, while trying to get more info on the right kinds of canned food to feed her, I came across the site. I cannot tell you how excited I am to have found a source for education and support as this one. It's been really hard to explain to others how difficult this has been emotionally on me. (I can't really even explain it myself). Storm and her sister, Kenzie are my babies, but Storm and I have a particulary clost bond. I have always joked that I am the "Pathetic Cat Mom", LOL but now I really do feel pathetic worrying so much about what's going on. Anyway, I am glad I'm here and look forward to learning as much as I can about Feline Diabetes so I can relax, knowing that Storm and our family's life can feel normal again.
