Honestly, guys. Does this shirt make my butt look big?
I think Mom’s gone over to the dark side.
Cat mop will work for food.
Soda? Really? Where’s the scotch?

I am thankful my coat is growing back, so I don’t look like this anymore. I am also thankful for all of my followers!
Too. Much. Turkey.
No! I don’t want to go in there!
Hi, I’m Lucifur Fluffypants, and I’m here to talk to you about diabeetus.
November is National Diabetes Awareness Month!
Throughout the month, my friends and disciples on Facebook have shared more posts about diabetes awareness than there are turds in my litter box (a lot). And I think that is GREAT. My human grandmommy and her brother both have diabetes, and their mom had it, too.
As we take time to raise awareness about this disease, it is important to remember that the hoomins aren’t the only ones affected by it. Cats and dogs are both susceptible to the disease, as I have found out recently. My best friend, Pandora, was recently diagnosed with diabetes. Although this has been a devastating experience for us, Mom and I are taking care of Pookie (what I call Pandora). It’s time-consuming and costs a lot of money with recurring vet, medication, and supply costs, but it’s worth it to keep my best friend with me. Who else is going to tag-team meowing incessantly at Mom with me?
And since I look like Wilford Brimley, it’s only appropriate that I speak out about diabeetus.
If you’d like to read more about Pandora or donate to help fund her journey to recovery, you can go here: http://www.gofundme.com/help-pandora

This is what WebMD has to say about diabetes symptoms in cats:
“In the early stages of diabetes, a cat will try to compensate for the inability to metabolize blood glucose by eating more food. Later, with the effects of malnourishment, there is a drop in appetite. Accordingly, the signs of early diabetes are frequent urination, drinking lots of water, a large appetite, and unexplained weight loss. The laboratory findings are glucose and possibly ketones in the urine and a high blood glucose level.
In more advanced cases, there is loss of appetite, vomiting, weakness, acetone breath, dehydration, labored breathing, lethargy, and, finally, coma. A muscle weakness, usually shown by an unusual stance in the rear with the cat walking down on her hocks instead of up on her toes, is often seen if glucose regulation is poor.”
