Binky, May 24 1987 - March 14 2003
This picture was taken in Nov 2002, shortly before his final illness.
Binky died not from diabetes but due to general failure of all systems.  His obituary can be found here.  Au revoir, sweet boy.
Binky was my adorable, plush, extremely loving, beige tabby cat, who was diagnosed with diabetes in January 2000.  Several years ago, with major input from the wonderful and supportive community at the Feline Diabetes Message Board (FDMB), as well as many others who have sent me information on cat foods, I compiled several useful documents, which are listed below.
