Many thanks for your response. I was convinced the honey rubbed on his gums had helped him come round from a coma/sleepy seizure like state and would a cat always seek extra water with diabetes? and also forgot to say he had no real loss of weight. He had a good appetite for wet canned food but drank no water offered. He did seem to have some constipation though and had long since given up grooming. I would appreciate your comments on these issues. Many thanks.
I am continuing to agonise over my cats euthanasia though in my heart I could see he was having a hard time. Guilt is persisting that I should have done more, more tests etc. He became very ill with a liver condition 2 years ago ,treated and put on Hills diet l/d. As I have another cat he frequently ate her food in preference after only eating a little of his own, so I wish I'd been more strict do you think this liver problem may have been a precursor to his ageing and the problems that led to his demise. Im sorry to not have included this before. Thank you
