Well, it turns out the ever handsome, cuddly, charming, Fritz has diabetes. On Saturday we went to the vet because he'd been drinking waaay to much water and peeing outside his liter box. The dude never pees outside his liter box so I knew something was wrong. 

Yesterday, I learned how to give him insulin shots. He took it like A BOSS, didn't even flinch. 

Fritz is 15. That's an old man in cat years. He's been healthy and well cared for his whole life. He's got the heart of a lion and other than the diabetes is in good health. 

Here is where you come in. I really need some help with the vet costs. One 6lb bag of the food he needs is $39.00 (but apparently, it is delicious because he's already finishing his meals), a vial of insulin is $240.00, and the syringes costs too. I also am learning to monitor his glucose levels with some pee strips. Yeah, I try to catch my cat peeing and stick a strip under him. The blood work to diagnose him was expensive too. 

I've never done a crowd source fundraiser before but these costs are too much for my school teacher self to handle. In November, Ozwald, Fritz's brother and best pal, needed a thyroid treatment which was easier to treat than diabetes but cost about half my monthly paycheck. Yikes. Caring for senior pets has gotten pretty expensive. But these guys have been my buddies for so many years, I owe it to them to make their senior citizen years comfortable and I need a little help right now. 

If you can, and want to, please send a few bucks our way! Fritz is pretty much always available and willing to give snuggles (as long as it does not disrupt his nap schedule) and loves to be pet, so if you need a little payback on your donation come on over!
