For all of you Abby-cat fans, I think there's good news.
Abby's eating and drinking so much less and the vet thinks we'll be able to control her diabetes just through diet. Yeehaw! I'm all for that. I'm glad she's going to be easy to care for. Coming from a farm, where cats disappeared and died from just things pretty constantly, it's hard to imagine giving a cat insulin and all the tests and costs involved. We'll still have take her in every half a year for a blood test but I think we both think that's okay. She would have just passed away if she was still on the farm but since I might have caught this really early, she'll have a bit more time ahead of her. Which is nice. Really nice. The prospect of putting one's pet down is difficult and it may be that it'll have to be chosen but for now, we get some more time with the Fluffer
and so does everyone else.
