Question about Cats

1 Answer

My cat is 12-14 years old, he is diabetic and I used to give him insulin and prescription food but can no longer afford it. since stopping he has lost a great deal of weight, always is drinking water, is peeing and pooping everywhere ( he never had a problem with this ) and real recently his coat has gotten a weird feel to it (almost sticky). Im afraid he is miserable and it is his time. Am I overreacting?

    Hi, you should go to your cat doctor for diagnosis. Also, consult him/ her about lower cost prescription.

If you sense the cat is suffering it may be time to let him go. Do you not have an animal shelter or clinic nearby in which you could ask for their advice mentioning your limited ability to pay?

SOURCE: My cat has recently been diagnosed with diabetes what is good for it to eat?

The main thing youshould think about is controlling your cat's diet. You can continue to give itthe same food but cut down and try not to give it too many snacks and treats.You should also talk to your vet about it as you may need to administer insulindepending on the type of diabetes.
