I had been giving him a little of that Johnsons's hairball treatment now and then because it seems like he gets hairballs. He is an indoor cat. But anyway, these vets seem to just want to put Moses to sleep. Its like they have it in their heads that its what is best. Because I had told the vet when this first happened that I didnt have that much money. I was reading yesterday about a raw foods diet. And how that can make a cat get over their diabetes without insulin? But its hard for me to believe a cat could eat raw chicken. Yuck! I was reading that a recipe for that was on this site, but I cant find it? http://catinfo.org/?link=felinediabetes I keep thinking of that one time when a cat we had taken in, which we named Maggie Mae, she suddenly went to where she wouldnt eat or drink a thing and turned into a skeleton almost overnight. I took her to the vet and he said there was nothing they could do and she needed to be put to sleep but I refused to do it. I took her home and started force-feeding her a half jar of veal baby food a day with a dropper full of water mixed with a little pure powdered charcoal to get rid of any impurities. And in about a week she coughed up a gigantic hairball, gained all her weight back quickly and before I knew it she was back to normal, playing around the house as usual. So I sort of have a distrust of Vets, anyway. I just think that they know I dont have a carload of money and so they want to put Moses to sleep That vet last night, when I asked if it was possible to get a cat back to normal with just diet and no insulin, he said no it isnt possible.
