Hello everyone. Haven’t dropped in here in AGES but it’s just like coming home to a favorite place.
I’m very lactose intolerant yet love drinking milk. So I drink lactose free milk despite the high cost. Don’t like soy or almond milks, am severely allergic to coconut in any form so can’t have coconut milk, and have just never developed a…[Read more]
Haven’t been on here regularly in awhile but thought I’d let everyone know it appears Cheryl “Cheri” Hoyt has passed away. I know she had issues but she was one of us here. God grant her peaceful rest.

I well remember when FondaHonda/Susan welcomed young kitty Einstein/Bailey into her heart, home and life. Like so many of the TDK family, she and others worked together to help each other, give moral support, and make good things happen. She is and shall be missed. I pray for her soul, her family, and her furnabies.
Hi littermates. Marnet here. I know I haven’t been around here on TDK for ages.
I want to thank Buttons for information about L-Lysine and share with everyone some astonishing results from giving it to my diabetic cat Frisky.
A bit of background. Frisky and his littermate Alice were ten weeks old when they came to us in November 2001. We…[Read more]
I don’t understand about the insurance policy. It shouldn’t matter whether or not it is mentioned in his will as long as you are the designated beneficiary. That is what determines who collects the life insurance.
Leeny, absolutely there are up and down days, especially when first treating diabetes. Even once everything gets into a smooth routine there will some days that aren’t good. It is just a fact when dealing with diabetes. On a brighter note, though, I will say that once you are able to test regularly at home and adjust insulin dosage as needed…[Read more]
Leeny, an additional thought about Penny not liking to be held for testing and shots. My Mandi cat is like that; she is loving but hates to be held at all. So on the occasions when I need to give her a pill or such, I place her on the sofa tucked snugly between the arm at one end and me. It isn’t fool proof but does make is easier to deal with…[Read more]
Leeny, here is the online link to info about the Young Again Zero Carb cat food.
The link takes you to the page listing the ingredients, calories, etc. Then click on the link to “Full Description” for more info in the website or go directly…[Read more]
Leeny, glad you are getting to practice the testing and giving shots under supervision. That is a great help!
As to the insulin, wow, don’t know which one the vet wanted to prescribe but $250 a bottle is higher than anything I’ve heard before. I know that Lantus costs about $136 per bottle with no insurance here in the St. Louis MO area. That…[Read more]
Leeny, like Jcat says, cats are smart and it won’t take Penny long to realize how much better she feels for getting her insulin shots. Honestly, I think it took longer for me to feel comfortable with the testing and shots than it did for my cats. Alice even got where she would come to me for her shot immediately after eating. We had a routine;…[Read more]
Leeny,I’ve had two diabetic cats, one of which I still have. Here are some things you need to know:
* When you do testing and give shots, RELAX. It will make it easier for both you and Penny.
* You do need a veterinary glucometer and testing strips specific to use in testing cats and dogs. Sorry, but you can’t just use the cheapest human…[Read more]

Good midday to everyone. Brisk 11 degrees F here in St. Louis at present with light wind and SUNSHINE. I can handle the cold and the snow if I have sunshine. But mother nature can keep any ice thank you very much. 🙂
Think I’ll sit by the TDK cafe’s fire for a bit, sip on a Shirley Temple in honor of the lady, pet all the kits returning from…[Read more]
