thanks for asking gbaby!  yes, he is on the meds.  i dont see any difference yet but they say it could take up to 5 days to start working.  has anyone heard of DAP?  that is something else we are trying.  it is a plug in that emits something called "dog appeasing phermones".

I haven't heard of it, but it sounds like a cool thing.  Let us know how it works.

Yeah, and DAP works to plug holes in plaster or drywall before painting.

awww, poor bosworth.  i looked around online briefly but only saw insulin treatment.  what made you take him to the vet to begin with? what symptoms did he display?  i never knew animals could be diabetic either.  i will try to find something on alternative treatment to share with you.

He was drinking a lot of water (it seemed like he was always at the water bowl) and his urine output increased,yes, with his increased intake of course, the output would increase too, but you could have made bricks with the consistency of his output!  Roll Eyes He also started 'weeing' outside the box, which is usually a sign of a problem. I have just heard of an oral med, Glipizide, and I have a Vet appt this week.

I hope your cat is diagnosed and gets the treatment it needs, Tiz. 

I can tell you all, make sure to get your critters their distemper shots!!!  I lost about 15 barn cats and kittens in July...and all it took was a sick stray and they were dead in a matter of days.  I had two surviving females I cannot understand how they made it.  I now have a new litter of kitties in the barn that are 3 wks old but I haven't been able to see them yet since they're stashed in the loft.  As soon as I get my hands on them, off to the vet they go for shots! 

Does anybody here take their pet to work?  I take my lil' pooch Nellie(a Bichon Frise) to work with me every day.  It takes the edge off a bad day. 

See ya!

Pirate, that sounds like the kitty stampede on the Budweiser commercials a few years ago.  I can just picture Pirate's Kitty Ranch in Colorado.

I think I passed a place like that when I drove through Nevada a few years ago.

I too am an animal lover and have rescued quite a bit over the years. It seems they just seem to find my front door.
Right now we have two dogs + the one in the basement who we are trying to find a home for. We found him wandering w/o collar and no one seems to want to claim him.  In August we found a mother cat and four week old kittens at a park. The mom weighed 1 1/2 pounds and looked like she had not had a meal in weeks. Did I forget to mention the 7 other cats we already had! It is quite a bit of work and also can be quite expensive on the pocket book.
Honestly, I find I sometimes relate to animals better than people. My friends tell me I will end up one of those old ladies living alone in a big house with hundreds of cats. Somehow that doesn't sound all that bad.
I've always felt God just knows who to send the neglected,lost ones too. Hopefully, he will give me a little break for awhile. Wink

Teresa,

I kn ow how you feel.  Hubby and I have rescued a little bit of everything over the years, and cats always remain true to our hearts.  We own 3, and 2 horses!

Just bought the love of our life - a pure bred Himalayan kitten from a breeder in Vermont.  Precious!

Keep up all the godo work!   Cheesy

Lori
