presenting our non-diabetic cat!

So I took Marcus -- who has been off insulin for one week now -- to the vet. I sent him back, and then the vet came out with Marcus in tow and said, "There are no diabetics in this room!" I laughed.

His diabetes is in remission. We're to keep feeding him the diabetic food (DM), alternating with the Purina E/N that's good for Aoki (and which both cats devour like whoa), but now we can reward them occasionally with some nice wet food (they particularly like salmon). The DM is also preventative, so it's good that he keeps eating it (and good for Aoki, too).

Marcus has now officially beaten cancer (back in '04) and diabetes. And he's still going strong at 17.

Go 'cus!
