    Hi Melody and extra sweet Tigger!!! Welcome to the FDMB!!

    It will help if you'll go ahead and add some details about Tigger. I know you from DCIN, but everyone else here will need to know what's been going on with him, as well as basic things like which insulin, what kind of food you're feeding, what kind of numbers have you been getting?

    We'll also need to get you a spreadsheet set up and that will really help people to help you and Tigger figure out what's going on.

    Tig is 19 lbs and I am trying to go to all wet food for him and lose some weight but he is a big kitty anyway he is very long. At this time he is on lantus 3mg twice a day and am giving him b12. His sight is going and neuropathy is bad. I am hoping he improves.
