My Cat Ramsey
Sunday, October 07, 2018
He is a orange tabby that my aunt found at work 9 years ago. He has been a spoiled prince ever since. Two years ago he was at a hefty 22 pounds. We changed his food and started to measure it out. He had picked my grandma as his human and she would feed him a full bowl of food a couple times a day. So about 2 cups a day. When her health got worse I took over and started to give him 1/3 cup 3 times a day. Over the past 2 months, give or take a few days, he has been drinking and peeing more. Last month I was looking at him and I thought that it looked like he lost some weight. I got the scale out and he was at 20 pounds. I couldnt remember what he was at his last visit so I just kept an eye on him. I could tell he has lost weight when I would pick him up. I weighed him again yesterday and it was 16 pounds. We took him to the vet today and $323.65 later we found out that he is a diabetic.
Once a cat is a diabetic, they are diabetic for the rest of their lives. He now has to get a shot everyday which I hope he gets use to FAST. Vet said we caught it early which is good. I cant give him human food anymore which will be hard. Not for me to give it to him but now I have to keep my eyes on my grandma who lets him eat from her plate. Last night I looked up some things that it could have been and it made me stressed. Finding out that it was diabetes, the better of the 3 issues, I was still stressed. Im crashing now and I just want to sleep. At least I dont get chest pains when Im stressed. I just get really tired and shut down.
Im going to rest now and watch a horror movie
