Today I am feeling stressed. My cat, who was originally diagnosed with diabetes last August, who went into remission spectacularly in December, now is back in diabetic mode. I went through a lot with him last fall. Vet visits one to two times a week for several months. Money spent - more than we made - and he was never regulated. He was diagnosed with cushing's disease, then acromegaly, then pancreatitis. And I have never been so angry and disillusioned at the incompetence thousands of dollars pays for.

And here I am again. Fearful, angry, and sadly, resigned to my fate. I am imagining months of vet visits with my 2 year old in tow.

His first word, last August, was Chester.

  1. Poor cat. He's a very a handsome chap. Good vets seem so hard to come by, unfortunately...

  2. Aw, poor kitty. And poor you ... Fingers crossed that Chester feels better soon. xoxo

  3. Best of luck to both of you. It is an extraordinarily wild ride. If you don't already know her, please contact Pamela Ribon (@pamelaribon) on Twitter, She's been on this journey, too. You can look for holistic help on Baby steps. One day at a time. Hugs.

  4. thanks everyone. Chester is doing well today, and the specialist seems more competent than our regular vet.. we'll see in time!
