Toby John

Well, we started Toby John on insulin last Wednesday.

I have to say, if you are gonna be a diabetic, it is better to be a feline one. His treatment thus far has been blissfully simple.

He gets one insulin injection--under the skin on his back with a real fine needle--once a day. I do it in the morning, when I feed him some breakfast. In just the seven days he has been receiving treatment, I have seen a change in him. It is plain that he is feeling better--he is perkier and more active and there is something in his eyes--a brightness--that was missing before.

My only regret was my fear to start treating him sooner. But we are there now and we are making it work.
