Does my cat Finney have diabetes?

Please say no, please say no. Finney is at the vet now. I’m waiting to learn if he has diabetes or not. I’ve had diabetic cats before (two at once!) so I know a diagnosis of diabetes is not good but it’s not the end of the world. It’s expensive though. And a pain in the ass. And I gave away that handy little blood test taker thingy, thinking what are the odds, after having TWO diabetic cats, that I’d ever have one again??

Dogs and humans visiting on Hudson Street, in front of the White Horse Tavern. I love that look, the short shorts and the clunky boots. And look at the Great Dane eyeing the little Yorkie, who has more important things to look at.

  1. Just catching up… good story about going to the other vet. Fingers crossed for you and Finney. Love the look on the great dane! Keep on swimming!

  2. I was writing a longish answer involving ‘free will’ and messed up with the old return key. Anyway, sorry about poor Finney and poor you!

    If you got my truncated comment, that’s why it looks weird! But I don’t know where it went.
