I've had Jazmin for just over 10 years. Recently, he (yes, female name, male cat, long story) started drinking more water and urinating more. I decided to take him to the vet for the first time since '97. I stopped taking him because he absolutely HATED needles. Plus he's an indoor cat, so I figured his chances of getting anything was small. I give him plenty of attention, but the caring for part was what I liked. Leave some food & water all the time, and clean the litter box. Pretty easy. Now it's a whole new game. I must give the little guy 2 needles every day for the rest of his life. I have to monitor his urine for the first few weeks. I'm not sure how I'm going to do this. Many weekends I'd stay at my friends house who lives over an hour away. Those days are gone. No more sleeping in either... I have to wake up EVERYDAY at the same time to give him his shot. What makes this worse is I'm EXTREMELY forgetful, and can be lazy I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with this... Now I must go an make a contraption out of 2 litter boxes, so I can test his urine... wish me luck Mike D.
