Mom had to take Armani to the vet yesterday as he was visibly losing weight, but still eating fine. Just got a call from the vet with his blood test results. He has diabetes. Normal range for a cat is under 170 and his test showed 470. Mom is taking him back to the vet on Monday for a "glucose curve", and he will be monitored all day for a correct insulin level. Though this is treatable, mom is sad, and she will have to give him insulin shots twice a day forever. We will find out more next week on next steps in his treatment, as mom has never had to deal with diabetes before.
For now, Armani is taking a nap and resting, and still looking as doodalicious as ever.
