€100,- in X-rays to tell us our cat is full of food. by Thaily

We knew she had been eating more, but her stomach was so hard and swollen non-stop we decided to go to the vet and make sure it wasn't pancreatitis, which diabetic cats are vulnerable to. The X-rays showed both her stomach and bowels were full of food, and she's still eating and pooping, so she's there's no blockage or anything. Her bladder was also full, which was to be expected. She drinks about 2 liters of water a day.
This should have gone down with her glucose levels (started with 22.9 in Oktober, 12.7 yesterday) so they want us to do a curve; stick her for blood and test it every hour for 10 hours in a row. Which is going to be hell on Earth.

We take her home, set down the carrier, open it and she leaps out, takes two steps and "Mew."
Me "You are not hungry."
Sierra "Mew."
Me "No."
Sierra "Mew."
Me "No!"
Sierra "Mew."
Me "YOU ARE FULL!"
Sierra "Mew."
Me "I JUST SAW IT!"
Sierra "Mew."
Me "WITH MY OWN EYES!"
Sierra "...."
Sierra "...."
Sierra "...."
Sierra "Mew."
Me "NO!"
