I just want to thank you all for your well wishes for Daytona. It helps me so much to know people are praying for him. I knew you guys would understand how much I love him.

Poor kitties!

Posh is mad/feeling ill right now. She has bad cat acne at the moment so I rubbed it with alcohol swabs and now she's trying to make me feel bad (and succeeding) for doing it.

I'm getting ready to go on a trip, and Jack senses that something is up, since I've packed his toys and food and dishes. Now he's hiding on the bed under the comforter. He thinks I can't see him, but there's a Jack-sized lump in the middle of the bed

I hope it is ok if I vent to you guys. I have been bawling all day over my cat, Daytona. He has been diabetic for 2 1/2 years and he has been doing well up until the last couple weeks. All the sudden he started drinking massive water and peeing alot. He got lethargic and just looks rough. I took him to our vet and he took a blood test and called me back today. He says his diabetes is out of control and that his body looks like it is getting immune to his insulin. He gets two shots a day. The vet is having us up his insulin way up and if that doesn't work we will try a new kind but there is no gaurantee that it will work. He is 14 years old and I can't imagine not having him around. He is so sweet. I was laying on the bed bawling my eyes out over him and he comes up to me and starts licking my hand like he is comforting ME when it is him who is so sick!!! With upping the insulin comes the risk of diabetic shock which could kill him. In the past 2 1/2 years he has had 2 episodes which scared the crap out of me. Luckily I was able to force feed him Karo syrup to get his blood sugar up fast. If he does have one again and I am not here to help him he could die. Unfortunetly it is trial and error getting a new dose right. I just hope to God that it works.
I have an older cat and reading that scares me. I'm lucky that so far, Pokey is perfectly healthy but I can't even imagine how I would deal with it if he were not. I hope you are able to get it under control. You and Daytona have my best.

My Jack does that, too.

Sometimes, he hides under his own bed, which is even more hilarious.

Sorry to hear about your cats U2Dem and Nuala Maybe they'll get better don't lose your hope...
It gets to me when I read things like this... First because I also have a cat and I wouldn't know what I'd do without her... Second because if I ever work with these animals as a Vet I think it will be very difficult for me to tell bad news to the owners and to watch animal pain... But I guess that's something time teaches us...

It's amazing how cats can make you feel SOOOOOOO guilty. They give you one pouty look or they ignore you, hide under the blankets, etc. They know exactly what to do to pull at our heartstrings.

My dear departed Miss Purrl always seemed to know when I was going away, especially when I got out my suitcase--she'd park herself in it and refuse to move. Callie and Fergus are more curious--sniffing everything.

When we used to bring Purrl home from the vet, we'd set the carrier on the floor and open the door. She'd walk out and plunk down in the floor with her back to us and ignore us for a while.

Everynow and then Chloe's back starts spasming and she's obviously very uncomfortable, she usually then scurries around and starts digging at her rear with her front paws. She's been doing this for a looong time now, and I just can't figure out what is wrong with her.

Thankfully she's still being active (as far as her usual activity goes). My dad got her a new catnip toy and she's been going NUTS with it. Otherwise there's still something wrong with her, we'll probably have to take her in to the vet next week so we can figure our what the problem is.
