Cat update

Since that last post, my cat has made a pretty good recovery. He's no longer having seizures, and can eat and drink on his own. He's still completely blind, unfortunately.

Our regular vet took his glucose curves on Monday, and without any insulin shots, his blood glucose never went into dangerous levels, even shortly after eating, so it seems his body has adjusted and requires nothing more than a good, high-protein, low-carb diet now. (Possibly. We're to keep an eye on him and see if he goes slowly out of whack again and call her if we see signs he's deteriorating.)

So, it's possible that the spark for the problem was hypoglycemia caused by his regular insulin dose. The vet isn't 100% certain whether the hypoglycemia was the entire problem, or whether there's something underlying that was triggered/made worse by the hypoglycemia. We're to keep our eyes out for more seizures, too.

But, in the meantime, I still have my kitty, and he seems pretty content. I don't know how long that will last - hours and hours of seizures followed by a couple days of intermittent seizures and not enough food or water had to have been hard on his body - but that's then, this is now.
