My Cat Finney has Diabetes

Which sucks. My vet believes he got it from being on steroids so we’re going to try to reverse it by weaning him mostly off them. It’s a balancing act that doesn’t usually work so much, she warned. He also has a UTI. So, poor Finney all around. I’m going to hope for the best.

  1. So sorry to hear about Finney’s diabetes and UTI. He is fortunate to have you as his owner (or whatever you call yourself! People can be very particular about this!) as you take the very best care of him… and Bleecker… and all the sweet cats who went before…

  2. Thank you all! And I know you meant Finney, Michael. I swear to god, all day long I’m yelling out, “Bleecker! I mean Finney!” Or, “Finney! I mean Bleecker!”
