First, I wanted to thank Kris and Teasel for so much help and guidance. It's taken about three weeks, but now I feel like I have a little bit of a handle on dealing with the timing, the doses, etc. Each blood test does not send my adrenaline flowing, which is such a relief. I'm so grateful to have a mentor, and really appreciate this site. An continuing problem is hind leg weakness, neuropathy. Java's getting weekly B12 shots, and was sprinkling Jarrow's B-Right on his food. I stopped for a while because he was finding it unpalatable, and now I realize it has 50 mg of inositol, which probably makes it not good. Can anyone recommend another source of B complex, preferably liquid that I can squirt into his mouth? I'm hoping that will help with his legs which are looking more and more sad. Relatedly, how would I know if it's partly arthritis, and if I should get painkillers? If it's diabetic neuropathy, can painkillers ever help? I also was wondering how people deal with going away. I've changed theater subscriptions so that I am home for the PMPT, and made other changes so that I'm around to be here for Java. He's very old, so I'm aware this is essentially hospice care. I'd really like to go away for 2 days when an old friend comes to visit. If you don't have a significant other to stay home and take care of the cat, what solutions have people come up with to take time away from your cat? Thanks.
