Earl is diabetic. He gets 1.5 units of insulin twice a day after mealtimes which doesn't bother him in the least. The injections are super easy to administer…don’t believe us? Check out this quick video to how easy it really is https://youtu.be/lhDihlKBtJw
After spending a lot of time with Earl and really learning his condition we have discovered with the right environment, right diet and with someone able to take a glucose reading 2-3 times a week he can go periods of time without needing any insulin. So far Earl has been able to go up to 3 weeks not needing any insulin.
Earl also has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV+), which is a cat-only disease that decreases the ability of the immune system to fight some infections. FIV+ is not easily passed between cats. It CANNOT be transmitted casually through shared litter boxes, water and food bowls, or when snuggling or playing. FIV is most commonly transmitted via deep bites during cat fights, the virus is present in the saliva of infected cats. With appropriate care and treatment of chronic conditions, most FIV+ cats live long, healthy and relatively symptom free lives.
