heart murmur/diabetes

I am so glad to hear that Chelsea is doing well and encouraged. I just adopted two older cats from a public shelter last week and am still reeling from the costs of the vet for both of them. One has a heart murmur rated at 3 and the other might be diabetic- I sprung for the costs of tests. I cannot afford the costs of long term cardiac care, nor for diabetic care. My feeling is that if I return the heart cat to the shelter, that will be the end of her, because it is difficult to find homes for special needs cats. If she does in fact, have a serious heart condition, I am inclined to let her live out her natural life with us, since she seems to have bonded with us. I am not sure about what to do if the the other cat tests positive for diabetes
