Looking out the Front Door



Anakin, Mika, Kazu, Romeo & Quincy all looking out the door. They love when I leave this door open for them to look out. I guess looking out windows is just not the same. Ani would not go up to the glass. That was too scary for him.

Kazu Diabetes Update ❤️



Kazu Diabetes Update ❤️ A cute pic of Kazu next to his first full bottle of lancets and test strips. Honestly, I was really hoping we might be able to have him in remission before we filled this bottle. That has not happened yet, but that does not mean it won’t ever happen. I am still very hopeful that remission will happen for him. Kazu is still really good about being tested and getting his shots. We have also got his new low carb wet foods and paste treat down to those that he likes that do not raise his blood glucose levels. We have not been able to find a low carb dry food that he can eat that does not raise his blood glucose levels. I have tried all the dry food samples recommended for diabetic cats, and none of those work for him. So for now, he is strictly on low carb wet food. Kazu does act like he feels so much better and has been playing a lot more and much happier. So that is all wonderful because how he is feeling is so important.❤️

It’s Anakin’s Gotcha Day! 😻 5/31/12 ❤️ 12 Years Ago Today! 🐾


It’s Anakin’s Gotcha Day! 😻 5/31/12 ❤️ 12 Years Ago Today! 🐾 Here’s my very 1st post about Anakin…. We have a new kitten! A very special new kitten. I wasn't looking to get another cat right now but you know how these things just happen. About two weeks ago a kitten without back legs started coming over to eat with the other feral cats at my dad's work. My first few trips to attempt to catch him didn't work out. Then Thursday (5/31/2012), Ian, Angel & I went to see if this was the day we could catch him. The kitten was cowering in the bushes & I climbed into the bushes & pulled the kitten out. We brought the kitten home & I set it up in our hall bathroom, exactly like I did with Trixie & Pixie two years earlier. Friday morning (6/1/2012) I took him to our vet as soon as they opened. Our vet said she has never seen anything like him before & he is amazing & that it's also amazing that his mother took care of him even with his handicap. She examined him & he is a little boy, approximately 6 to 8 weeks old & it in really good health. Two xrays on him showed he was born with no pelvis or back legs. We let him walk around the room for a minute to see how he moves. He positions his front legs at an angle towards the middle of his body & balances his backend in the air with the use of his tail touching the ground if he needs it. He gets around really well that way & is pretty quick too. The xray also showed that his insides were not malformed, last was the feline leukemia test. He's came back negative. So we got him vaccinated, dewormed & a little flea meds & unless we have any problems with him, he goes back to the vet in three weeks :) Now, he is home getting comfy in his little bathroom & will be there for a while till he is bigger, stronger & ready to be socialized with the other cats & our dog. He is such a sweet calm little guy :) He is happy to cuddle in our laps & purrs really loud. He likes to play with a little toy mouse & also chase a beaded necklaces around on the floor. We have decided to name him Anakin & will be calling him "Ani" (yes after Anakin Skywalker :D )
Here's a video of him walking ~ http://youtu.be/zMIBxFtvZKI

Kazu Diabetes Update ❤️


Kazu Diabetes Update - Thank you so much for the well wishes for Kazu! ❤️ Kazu is doing ok. Me not so much, I’ve had about six hours sleep in the past two days. He almost had a hypoglycemic incident Sunday night then went hyperglycemic in the middle of the night.  I found a Facebook group for help with diabetic cats. I’ve learned a lot of info the last couple days. I have now started home testing which they highly recommended. I’m surprised that my vet did not recommend home testing to me. Kazu has been wonderful with the testing. He doesn’t mind it at all as long as he’s getting some of the pasty treats. Right now my Vet and the Admins on this fb group are giving me some conflicting information. I have a friend that is a human doctor that has dealt with diabetes a lot over the last 40 years she’s going to come over tomorrow and help answer some questions for me and help get a better handle on all of this and how it all works. I’m still going by what my vet says for his treatment. I’m just trying to learn more from my friend so I can ask my Vet better questions and things I may not have thought of. Once I get Kazu more sorted out and feel comfortable with testing him and getting his insulin doses right I will feel so much better about all of this.

πŸ’œ Kazu has Diabetes 😿





Kazu has been diagnosed with Diabetes & has started treatment. He had just had bloodwork and urinalysis done the middle of December, because I felt like he was off then. Not his normal, active playing self like Romeo & Quincy. All of that bloodwork and urinalysis came back completely normal. His blood glucose was right in the middle of the range 127. The range is 72-175. So since she couldn’t find anything wrong with him, we just had to wait till he developed any more symptoms. February 16 Kazu started being treated for a UTI. I also noticed he was drinking more water. About 3 days into his UTI treatment I still didn’t think he was right so I took him for more bloodwork and another urinalysis. Thursday 22nd morning my vet called called and said Kazu has diabetes my heart sank. His blood glucose was almost 400. She wanted me to bring him in to learn how to give injections and go get him a prescription for insulin to start asap. Kazu started out getting 1 unit of insulin every 12 hours. It is the tiniest little amount of insulin not even a fourth of an inch. We are also adjusting his diet and probably everyone else’s diet to make things easier and possibly help prevent Kazu’s other two brothers from getting diabetes as well I hope since this seems to be genetic. There is a possibility that Kazu could go into remission since we caught this very early so I am hopefully. Kazu’s went to the vet yesterday morning 2/28 for 9am to have glucose curve monitoring. His numbers still stayed in the low 400s for his first 2 checks then high 300s for the second 2 checks. Kazu was on 1 unit of insulin every 12 hours, now I gave him 1.5 units last night and then starting this morning he now gets 2 units of insulin every 12 hours.  He has been really good about the shots. We just distract him with some of the lickable tube treat and he doesn’t even know he’s getting an injection. Kazu goes back for his next glucose curve monitoring in two weeks unless something change. I have been reading and researching a lot online about cat diabetes. I want to be fully educated and able to care for him the best I can. Kazu does act like he feels a bit better so I will keep you posted on how he’s doing! I can’t believe that he also has diabetes just like what happened to Forrest. At least this time I knew what to watch for. It still kills me that I didn’t know what was happening to Forrest until it was too late. I will always feel like I failed Forrest because I didn’t know what was happening. Please send me all the good vibes and well wishes you can for Kazu. This has been a lot to deal with for all of us and especially Kazu. Xoxo! Carrie & Anakin

Also Anakin is doing great! I’ll post some more pics and video of him soon ❤️

Anakin and Arya ❤️





January is starting out rough! Anakin had a UTI last week and had to go to the vet for an anti-inflammatory shot. He has finished his antibiotics and is feeling much better! UTIs are somewhat chronic for him though because of his missing back legs and pelvis. Arya has also been sick and to the vet 3 times last week. She also has a uti and diarrhea and is being treated for all of that. However, she has something else going on with her too, and they’ve did some special  bloodwork that came back today and she has Hypercalcemia. The vet does think it is probably idiopathic and not caused by cancer or kidney disease because none of her other blood values that would indicate cancer or kidney disease were out of range. She also had X-rays that were all normal with no tumors as well. So she is on a new prescription food and will be on Prednislone to see if that helps her bring her calcium levels back into normal range. She will be rechecked in a month. She is also finishing up her UTI antibiotics tomorrow and is feeling lots better.
