Hi, my name is Peggikaye. I live in Tulsa with my husband, adult son #2 (son #1 is out on his own) and our beloved cat Twitch. Twitch has suddenly started drinking lots of water, urinating a lot (a lot!), and being more lethargic. He also has lost quite a bit of weight in the last couple of months -- almost 1/3 of his body weight -- but he's so fluffy (Maine Coon) that it wasn't that noticeable - even the vet was surprised by the amount of weight loss. They tested him for diabetes, thyroid disease, and kidney disease. Her gut was diabetes. We find out tomorrow. For tonight, she said just be nice to him.
