My Shamus has been in remission over 2 years now and went into remission rather quickly with a diet change and 9 days of Lantus. I have checked his sugars monthly or if I have thought something may be off. He has been bugging more for food lately but I’ve been testing and didn’t know if that was just him trying to manipulate me and every time I’ve checked his sugars were in the normal range. We have not had anything above normal in years. This past year and a half has been stressful in my home. It has always just been myself and the two kitties. Very quiet and calm. My brother moved in and his young boys spend time here through the week and overnight every other weekend. Shamus has never liked little people and he hisses at them and has even chased them before. Most of the time they are here, he hides in his basket in a closet. This week we had them for the holiday for more consecutive days than we have had ever and I noticed he hadn’t come out all day. When he did come out he had diarrhea and did so all on the bed. His brother also had a bit of diarrhea in the litter box though. I know Shamus must have had his accident because he felt too stressed to come to the litter box. After the kids left I brought him out and he peed and I offered his middle feeding. He wouldn’t touch it, which is unusual. I opened a new can thinking maybe the first one had upset both of their tummies. He returned to his hiding spot and I decided to test his sugars. I was hoping the meter was wrong when I tested 14.4, 16.3 and 11.4 all within a mater of minutes. I feel so devastated. On top of this, I am supposed to head south for four months on Monday. I did this last year under the same living arrangements and never had a problem. What I’m wanting to know is, is it possible these are just stress readings and his BG will return to normal and IF stress related could this turn into a full blown relapse if the stress continues? Has anyone else had this? Do I need insulin again? Any compassionate assistance would be greatly appreciated. My heart is breaking for him. We’ve done so well.
