So sorry about Smudge, PF. Must the meds be of the injectable variety?

Only way to get insulin. We've tried everything to get her the shots, but she's having none of it. All we can do is make sure she is happy and loved. Sometimes there is no cure, diabetes in a cat is not fun.

I missed the information on Smudge. So sorry, PF.
You should know better though. She needs the shot.

I know it, Shrek knows it, the vet knows it...try to convince her. I have scratches all over, Shrek is covered with scratches and like I said, she was starting to hide from us. Now she is content and I am not going to force it on her anymore.

Poor Smudge. I guess quality of life can be more important than length of life. If she gets really debilitated, she might be willing to be injected.

Don't you guys think I've already done what I could to keep her healthy? Please stop making me doubt our decision to let her at least die happy. It's hard enough dealing with this grief without having to keep explaining our decision over and over. It sucks, life sucks and death certainly sucks.

I agree, Taxy, there comes a time. Why should she be miserable?

Absolutely! Smudge is happy now, I would definitely do what you are doing if/when Beagle gets to that point. As Taxy pointed out, quality is more important than quantity.
