Hello, and thank you, thank you, thank you for this forum! My name is Dena, and my Smudge was diagnosed 2 days ago. He is a rescue kitty that picked me about a year ago along with his rescue-brother Fuzzy (aka Red), and I think he is around 5 years old. In the midst of wading through any information I could find I found you! My main concern has been looking for low carb food and understanding what diabetes is. Our goal is to be insulin free as quickly as possible (if it is at all possible for him) and to maintain better health thru a better diet.
