Any possibility you could feed him more canned instead? I always left some out for my guy.

Unfortunately the insulin you're using isn't well suited for constant snacking though. Perhaps a longer-lasting, gentler onset kind of insulin like Lantus or Levemir would suit your kitty better.

Tasty treat rewards can go a long way to making the experience more tolerable. 100% freeze dried meat such as PureBites, Halo Liv-a-Littles or Whole Food Toppers are great for diabetics since they're low carb and high in protein.

When a cat's blood sugar goes too low from too much insulin, there's often a corresponding period of high blood sugar. More detailed info here:
