  1. Hola! Hermano, I understand. My glucose levels are normal again, but, get this! I still have to eat the special diabolic crunchies! Sorry to learn you must have "insulting "needles, but Dinah tells us you are a pretty tough customer so you can take it. We are thinking of you, hermano. Geiger y Sporran

  2. Curved front legs and weight loss aside, you still look like a big, strong cat to me. Woman and Smoothman will work out a special routine just for you, with lots of your favorite things and a little, annoying mosquito bite in the middle of those said favorite things. Eventually you will look forward to this daily ritual of Storbie worship and wreak havoc on your followers when they are tardy. Stay strong, Estorbo. And eat!

  3. It'll be easier than you think. Long ago, my Vincent (RIP 2000) had diabetes, and I had to give injections daily. The needle was tiny! He didn't even feel it. Just pinch, poke, plunge, done. He purred the whole time. Giving subQs to Blue earlier this year, that was much harder, because it's a bigger needle and the bag has to hang, so I had to sit there holding him down until the dose was in. Not fun! And his skin toughened, whereas Vince's didn't. I think you'll be fine, Storbie. You won't even feel it. But you will feel better.

  4. I think your vet knows when he's got a good customer! One who pays bills. He may be planning a trip to the Bahamas!

  5. My ved - eben though he ees a ved - ees great. Y I yam seeck.

  6. This is a bump in the long long road of life. Thankfully you have parents who love you enough to find a great ved and will cook delicious foods for you. Now you must eat so you feel better and get your strength back. Ok? Ok. xo

  7. That stinks...Estorbo, your staff are worried about you(we all are). Be a good boy and be kind to your humans and Dr. Slade. I hope you get better soon. My staff wants to thank the Wooman again for her advice regarding my thyroid issues. Canned food with extra water is pretty tasty!

  8. Forghe, Estorbo! When you're feeling better, tell the Wooman to keep those tasty treats coming!

  9. What John said + much love, purrs, pats & way too many kisses

  10. Oh, Storbie! All best wishes. My lovely companion Rafe lived 10 years, till the age of 20-1/2, with diabetes, using just special food, not injections. You have a few problems other than diabetes, but you can overcome them too. Hang in. Mary

  11. I said a prayer for you, Storbie.....Have the woman set up an account to help with the vet bills...I can't give much but would love to help.....

  12. Another fan with a diabetic cat. I know there are other issues, though. Best wishes. Some unsolicited advice FWIW... spirulina (algae, i.e. pond scum, but it smells fishy, both my dog and cat eat it mixed in with their food - lots of nutrition.

  13. How are you doing, Estorbo? We worry about you.

  14. Get well soon Estorbo! So sorry to hear you've been ill. You are still looking very handsome in your photos.

  15. ah, hermano, life spelld backwurrds is efil -- sum dayz mor than othrrz.
    stay strong my brothurr.
