    It's been 4 years since Cass cat's last insulin shot. At almost 18.75, he's still as cuddly as ever. We're doind subQ fluids 3 times per week, but he seems content most of the time.

    I know the sugar dance is hard, but a happy, healthy cat (even if maintained with insulin) is worth it. Don't give up or despair; Cass was on insulin for almost 3 years. We started dosing 3 times a day. He was a bouncer. I thought he'd never stabalize. But he did. And he's been OTJ longer than he was on.

    There's lots of good advice & helpful people here. Take advantage of the community & keep on sugar dancing.

    Thanks for this! It helps to know that FD kitties can do well long term with or without insulin.

    It's been 6 years since Cass cat's last insulin shot. At almost 20.75, he's still as cuddly as ever. We're doing subQ fluids daily, but he seems content most of the time.

    Wow!! Congratulations and thank you so very much for that positive news. I’ve been working my girl for over 2 years and have been feeling pretty discouraged lately And-. I just got a random 347 @ +5.:banghead: That Bit of positivity was just what I needed. Thank you and may you and Cass cat have many more happy healthy years.
