Diabetes in cats acts just like diabetes in people

Manxi rolling over for attention in a cage

Manxi the cat being held by BekkyManxi came into us a few weeks ago because she had stopped eating and was very weak and had lost a lot of weight.

To cut a long story short she had diabetes and because her body was being deprived of glucose (sugar) and when she stopped eating her metabolism had changed and she was mobilising fat. The fat had accumulated in her liver and stopped it from working properly.
