Hi again. Well, my guy did really good for about two or three days---no urinating on anything except the litterbox. Now he's been peeing on our bed again and today he tried to pee in my mother-in-law's overnight bag! Geez! lol I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I know that it COULD take a week or two to really stabilize him on the insulin and so I should be patient, but when he did so good for those couple of days I thought that his urinating out of the box was finally over. I wish that it was because my husband is not nearly as patient w/ Jazzy as I am and I'm worried that he's going to get fed up and want to put him to sleep or something. :(

Anyway, I called the vet today about it and she said that he could have an underlying UTI or something. I have Amoxi-drops and so until I can see her and have her get a urine sample from him, I'm going to give him that twice a day and see what happens. Cross your fingers, guys. :)

btw---earlier today I caught him getting ready to pee on a towel on the bathroom floor and rushed him out of the room to his litterbox right away. It seemed like he really couldn't hold it----not like he was doing it deliberately. Have any of you had this happen w/ your cats when they were starting treatment for diabetes?

Thanks so much,
Tracy

A few of the cats we've treated for diabetes had this problem and it always seemed to start when the cats were drinking more water and their owners knew the insulin level was high.

Do you know when the last time his blood sugar was checked and if it was high or not?

You know, I haven't bought a glucometer for him yet, so I'm really not sure where he is at blood sugar wise. The vet checked it when she was here last and so that was the last time. I guess today I'll go out and get a glucometer and see where he is at. Maybe that's what's going on. :)

Thanks so much for your help,
Tracy
