Awww...Bandit is such a BBB (Big Beautiful Boy!), and I have a BBB of my own named Wile E., who is 20 pounds and 12 years old as well. I will post a pic of him. I had a diabetic kitty who I lost last year at age 15. He lived with the diabetes for quite a long time and he handled all the medical treatment very well...he was a great kitty and I miss him sooo much (he is Charlie, my avatar kitty).
I can't donate for Bandit 'cause I have a PIN on IMOM at this time, but I certainly send many good wishes and prayers your way. I can see that Bandit is a spunky boy and I believe with your loving care, he will be with you for many years to come.
I don't know what type of food your vet is recommending, but my Charlie did best on with his blood sugars on low carb canned food...just a suggestion for you to maybe discuss with your vet.
Mary K. and the gang.
Hello Mary K. and gang !!!
Thank you so very much for your
and for you good wishes and prayers !!!
I'm so very sorry to hear about your baby Charlie !!!
I know you must miss him terribly !!!
Yes, one of the vets there did finally recommend I switch Bandit's diet over to the low carb canned food...and he likes it A LOT !!! He wants to eat ALL THE TIME !!! It's $30 more a month on my fixed income that I wasn't planning; but I'll sacrafice what I can for his better health !!!
I love the picture of your BBB, Wile E. !!! He certainly doesn't look 20 pounds, but he "does" look very very comfortable !!!
I wish I had more pictures of Bandit to post. . . However, my computer is 7 years old, and the one picture I sent to a friend who scanned it and then sent it to me in an e-mail. I don't know anything about digital cameras; but I just got a small one I'm going to try & figure out & hope I can get a few more pics and try to post them !!! Actually ~ my screen name should have been: TheMistressofComputerCluelessness ~ but it was too long !!!
And yes, Bandit most certainly can be -quite- the spunky boy !!! Some of his games get a little too rough - - - I have the scratches, bites, and scars to show for it ~ when he like to wrestle; then he gets into "Attack Cat" mode !!! He can be hard to fend off if he's got his mind made up !!!
Of course, if he's really excited, I can often spook him into a game of "Hide And Seek"
~ It's up to him, if he's in the mood !!! Although, I must say, he is very sensitive to my moods, and when I am feeling worse than I usually do ~ He tends to stay kind of close then.
Anyway ~ Lots of Hugs & Lubs to you & your gang Mary ~
from me & "The Bandit"
