What You Need to Know About Feline Diabetes
When my first cat, Monkeyface, was diagnosed with feline diabetes, I was devastated. He was 11 years old when he died, which is pretty old for a Maine Coon. They can get to be 45 inches long and weigh up to 30 pounds, so their hearts are too small to pump the blood through their bodies. They tend to succumb to heart failure at a young age compared to other breeds.
