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 ~
