Hi, My poor cat winston aged 5 has had so much over the last 3-4 years. From abscess on head, to injuries from fights, from toxoplasmosis and the list is endless. The big one was allergies and he was being treated with steroids for last year. over the last 4 weeks he constantly meowing and crying for food. Anyways took to vets as he only had a steroid last week for his allergies and she said his glucose reading was very bad and has diabetes. Winston is not a lap type cat more of an outdoor "feed me and leave me". Im very worried about giving him injections and the rest that goes with it. Doing all my research on here and other sites. He is going to vets for next 48 hours while they keep eye on him every 2 hours after insulin. Im not sure what type of insulin yet. Obviously very worried and hope i and he will cope. My main concern is doing the injections before / after work as he is not an easy cat and not a "handling" type cat. I think the best is food down and inject but even when he is eating i tried to grab an area to "where i might inject" and found difficult before he done a runner. How do people cope socially? Morning injections wount be a problem at say 4am, 6am , but if i am out for a day trip and not back at 9-10pm?? How do you all manage that ? Obviously as much as we love him we need a social life where we will have some commitments and i dont want him to suffer. Overwhelming, but i will do my best for him.
