A bit late getting around to posting intro, uploading photo, as of course I came here (and to the FB page) in dire emergency, and have already learned so much and been helped by a lot of wonderful, experienced people. I had one cat who had diabetes 20 years ago--back when vet costs in my area were 1,000% less--and it was so simple and easy to deal with. But my Mamacita, on insulin since hospital stay 11/11, is a whole different and non-stop scary, overwhelming story. She's 13 probably, not much older, and is the only one of my 4 cats (all dumped at my old office which was a well-known cat dump) who follows me quietly around like a little dog (I often trip over her and wish she'd bark or something)--the only one who always wants to cuddle and snuggle. I know she's very happy not to have to live outside in the cold and rain anymore, but she's only been with me about 3 years now and I think it'd be awfully unfair if she died without a nice long life in comfort. And love. Especially that!
