Re: Diabetic 5 year old cat
You're wonderful for considering this, but understand that this cat could live a very long time if managed properly (10 years or more). Your life will revolve around the schedule for his insulin shots. The time those are given cannot vary significantly. Are you or your fiance prepared to be home or awake to administer a shot EVERY day within a half hour of 6am and 6pm (for example) (and I'm not sure if it's a half hour, but it's not far off). And also find someone capable of doing it when you can't be home and the cost associated if you have to hire a pet sitter to do it. I've know people who had difficulty making this commitment for a cat they've had for years and love dearly, taking in a cat with this condition may create resentment very quickly. I'm not trying to be a wet blanket, but make sure you've thought this through.
