Before I get into the topic here is a brief background - My cat, Zhoom Boy, was diagnosed with diabetes in early July after a course of prednisolone for suspected asthma (which turned out not to be asthma) and is struggling to get regulated. He still has numbers all over the place. He landed in the hospital in mid July with a fever of 107, probably from a virus but no one really knows. He recovered thank goodness. Ultrasounds done at that time indicate that he may also have IBD/lymphoma. He is currently on Lantus 1 unit 2x/day and eating a prescription novel protein canned food (Royal Canin Rabbit). Recently, he had been on 2 units but had a low (68) and vet cut his dose in half after that. His numbers are now always high whenever I test them. Sometimes as high as 700. Usually between 400 and 500. Too high. I will do another curve in a week. I am new here and have not posted an official introduction yet. It seemed so overwhelming. So, I decided to start from where I am at. In litter pan hell. Zhoom started licking his litter pee a few weeks ago. Now I catch him shoveling it into his mouth with his paw. It is so disturbing. We ran labs this week (CBC, Chem, Urinalysis and Thyroid) all normal (except obvious- diabetes). I am thinking of changing litter (using clumping grass litter currently) but not sure what to switch to or if it will even help. It is not really the litter he seems to be after, it is the urine. He also just started having diarrhea for the last 4 days. He tried to eat that too. Just started him on metronidazole. Has anyone experienced their cat eating urine before? Any suggestions on a litter that might deter him from eating it or is at least safe if he does eat it? I appreciate any insights anyone may have.
