    /\ The photo didn’t ‘quote’ but this is the one where the kitty didn’t like the food being served.

    Now this one resonates with me...

    Just this week my daughter-in-law had two of her three kitties to the vet...one on them is almost 16 years old and for the last 15 months it has been a struggle to get her to eat. She has gradually lost from being 12 pounds to just under 8 pounds. She has been on thyroid meds for a year and occasionally an appetite stimulant. This week it was discovered that her kidney function is off and now she is on a med for that.

    The other kitty, Ernie was a stray that she had been feeding outside for nearly a year. On Christmas Eve, 4 years ago, the temperature was about 12 degrees and they left the garage door cracked open about a foot with a bed and portable heater in the corner hoping that he would come in. Mandy was never able to get close enough to him to grab him. A little later #1 grandboy went out in the garage and saw Ernie and quickly hit the button to close the garage door. Ernie was frightened and running all over the garage: but, grandboy was able to throw a towel over him and grab him. He discovered he had been declawed and neutered, so he had been someone’s pet at one time. He checked for fleas and there, thankfully, weren’t any so he took him inside and closed him in the laundry room. After Christmas Mandy took him to the vet to see if he had a microchip, he didn’t...she advertised but no one came forth to claim him. The vet said he was healthy, gave him shots, estimated that he was about 4 years old and he has happily been an inside and loved kitty ever since...but, in the past month he started drinking lots of water and peeing lots...so off to the vet, he has diabetes and now requires two insulin shots a day.

    So, I researched the best way to care for and feed him and in my research found that “canned wet food” is better for kitties that dry/kibble food. So, I thought I really should transition my Sweet Arabella to wet food. Mind you now, she has never had anything but Pro Plan chicken, first the kitten then the adult inside cat food. Okay, so I went to Pet Smart and purchased a dozen cans of Pro Plan chicken pate. I offered her some yesterday, she...

    1) Smelled it;
    2) Started pawing at the edge of the placemat that the dish sat on;
    3) Kept pawing until she got about half the dish covered and walked away; and
    4) she walked over to where I was and looked up at me and gave me a big loud MEOW!

    I will try again, but it doesn’t look promising.

    Yup! Hopefully we can reverse the diabetes by transiting Ernie from a kibble diet to a wet food—from food that is about 25-30% carbs to one that is about 5-10% carbs. It has to be done slowly though because with the insulin his blood sugar could crash ...we need to talk to the vet about it and see how to monitor him so that doesn’t happen.

    Actually, I should say reverse the need for insulin, instead of reverse the diabetes. In other words, control it with his diet rather than insulin as the vet said it is like the Type 2 diabetes in humans, the pancreas produces insulin but the body isn't using it as it should.

    I feed my cats both dry food which is out all the time and canned food in the morning when I get up. They all share one can.
