My 12 year old cat Montgomery was diagnosed with diabetes a few months ago, and my family thought we were managing his condition well with insulin injections.
However, over the past few days he has gotten weaker, constipated, won’t eat and is generally lethargic. We took him to the vet today again today and he has to be hospitalized for the next few days because he has ketoacidosis, a life threatening complication with a high mortality rate. He is being treated with IV fluid therapy, insulin and symptomatic care, and when my brother visited him after work he said he seemed more alert and was eating (a good sign).
It is my hope that God spares him for a little while longer. He seems to be comfortable, outside of this acute incident. I know God’s will be done, but if you can please send prayers for his recovery, and pray for us, I would be so grateful. He’s such a sweet, good-natured boy. I’ve never loved an animal like him and had him since I was in college, my heart is so full to think of losing him. Thank you.
