she may be a little off balance or disoriented glucose wise.....and so a bit stressed....I kept a diabetic cat going for 11 years until he was past 17.....just make sure you have clear karo or honey or whatever you use when she needs it handy all the time....crashing is really unpleasant for both of you!

Sounds like my cat Misty. We got her from a shelter when she was a tiny thing probably 8 weeks old, she was ferrel and now she is about 13yrs old. When she was younger she was ok always skittish unless it's really cold then she will seek warmth like when I put a blanket on when I'm on the couch. Over the last few years she does nothing but meow sometimes with a horrible voice that is so annoying. My husband thinks she started this after our other cat died a few years ago. There is nothing medically wrong with her that we can tell.
She wants no part of the new kitty, the only one she's close to is Lakota, she always pets herself against Lakota. Other than that it's like she's miserable and doesn't want a thing but food from us.

Excessively Vocal Cat
My Mister has always been a very vocal cat. But since his diabetes arose he is more vocal than usual. It's almost non stop and I think it's to the point where his throat gets dry and he wants to drink water constantly. It doesn't bother me or upset me. I just worry--could he be in pain or something? I usually give in to his meowing and give him food or pet him and he quiets down for a while but as soon as I stop paying attention to him it begins again. If I look at him he meows even more. His meow sounds different when he is with his friends in his cat room and when he is in the house with us.
I posted this same question on the Feline Diabetes Forum. I think they always think the worst case scenario which is fine, bless them. But what do you think?
