A Humorous Account of Caring for a Diabetic Cat

cat with diabetes

Megan Radford has written a humorous post titled Babysitting a Diabetic Cat, or How I Learned That Karma Bites Back for the website DiabetesDaily. A diabetic herself, Radford was the obvious choice to care for her sister's diabetic cat (who requires twice daily insulin injections and occasional glucose testing) when her sister went away. The post begins:

I am the friend who is used to needles. The one who doesn't flinch or faint at sight of blood or sharp things. When my sister asked me to take care of her diabetic cat for a week while she and her husband were out of town, I blustered and puffed about like nobody's business. "No problem!" I said with gun-slinging fervor. "Piece of cake!" With a wink and the fingers twisting into an okee-dokee gesture, I delivered the final blow with a wry smile: "It's not like I'm afraid of needles or anything!"
