My cat is on NPH, 8 units am, 8 units pm (he weighs 19 lbs and is a Maine 
Coon cat - they are large).  He's doing ok with that, but just ok, NPH is so 
peaky.  Have you had success with the Lantus?  It's way more expensive, but I 
 wonder if it wouldn't be a better option. I'd have to teach my vet about it,
that's ok, teaching doctors is what diabetics do, isn't it?
