I need to find something laugh about -- because this situation has me sad today. Our cat [Baby] will be 7 in August. In February we found out that he had a life threatening heart problem. He is since being treated for it and it appears to be under control. But, since Feb he has gone from 14 pound to 10.6 pounds. He is a bag of bones right now. I just had him at the vet and they drew blood. His sugar was 572! My vet wants to consult with the heart specialist to see if there is any problem giving insulin with the current heart meds. So --- doc said that he will be on insulin shots twice a day. Then I asked him what about his food --- should he switch to a low carb diet. Doc was impressed that I knew to ask. And the answer was YES -- he would be going on a low carb food. So I now will have my Kittie joining me on the Atkins 'Family' plan.
