My wife and I are devastated that our Cat Bishop was diagnosed yesterday and we are doing everything in our power to prepare to provide Bishop the best life possible. We also have an infant, a dog as well as another cat to take care of, and I'll be starting graduate school so this is extremely stressful (especially in the CoVID-19 world). We are fortunate enough to work from home in the time being, so we want to tackle this as aggressively as possible to get him to remission on a diet controlled environment *Knock on Wood*. He is an extremely sweet, but extremely shy DMH Snowshoe Mix, and we have had him for the past 5 years. I always joke that he only likes me when I'm horizontal (lying down or sitting), as he is normally skittish when walking around. (We adopted him from a shelter and we think he was abused in the previous home). I am absolutely mortified about attempting to give him insulin as well as home testing as I really am worried about how to hold him still with out further stressing him out. I also have questions on the exact cycling of feeding times, and how exact the 12 hour eating and insulin cycle needs to be. We will honestly try our best to be as consistent as possible, but as long as it occurs in the morning and night will we be okay? We are currently also in process of switching vets just because the current one is quite expensive (they were the only ones with availability to look at him).
