    Happy Friday everyone!:cat:

    Blaze’s amps is 384.

    Usually Friday is my day off but I am subbing for a dental hygienist at another office so I will be gone all day, won’t be able to come home at lunch. Hopefully Blaze brings it down for PMPS!

    Thanks Sue! Hope you and Luci have a good day!

    Ya, looks like Blaze will need to go back up to 1U but he has until 10/14 pm shot to get it together if he doesn’t want an increase!

    If there is a big drop at +1, should I give a MC snack to start?

    Okay sounds good! I want to avoid huge drops and keep him safe. If it’s not a big drop at +1, Im
    not going to give him any snacks until +2 or 3, but we’ll see how he does!

    Thank you! I had to show off how handsome he is!:kiss:

    Sometimes they get a food spike at +1 and then drop a lot at +2 so I would test at +2 and decide what to feed based on whether he’s the same/lower or alot higher than PMPS. If it’s the former, he’s going to likely come down tonight.

    You think I should skip +1 test then and just wait until +2? That’s usually what I do since +1 is usually a food spike like you said.

    I’m going to skip +1 and get a +2 test in an hour. If he’s dropped a lot, MC snack.

    Okay +2 is 140 so that’s a 99 point drop:eek:

    going to feed a MC snack, should I test in thirty minutes or is an hour okay?

    Decided to get a +2.5 test in case he dropped more, which he did! BG is 103. Gave a little more MC to slow him down.

    Sorry we were having dinner. Just for future record, I would have gotten the +1. I wasn’t addressing that since you sai you were going to get it. I was just letting you know not to overlook the +2.

    He’s clearing a bounce so he’s likely to keep dropping all cycle.

    Oh man I’m sorry, misunderstood again:(
    I ALWAYS get a +2/3 but rarely get a +1 since it usually look like a food spike. Now I know for future reference. Still learning :nailbiting:

    Going to test Blaze at +3

    Blaze is making moves for the lagoon!! Mowgli is waiting!! I hope blaze doesn't bounce tomorrow from this big drop, unless you wanted to be able to sleep tomorrow, then a bitty baby bounce is ok!

    No apologies needed.

    With a cat that dives when clearing a bounce, it’s good to get a +1 and catch those drops before they start. The goal is to flatten the curve even if it’s a little higher. By flattening it, we can, hopefully, stop the dives that causes subsequent bounces.

    I can try to stay up until +6, that’s midnight for me, should I load up the auto feeder with MC snacks for the rest of the night when I go to bed?

    Yes! Blaze wants to meet Mowgli in the lagoon!:D
    And I’m sure he will bounce from this, it’s his M.O., bounces are his thing! I’m okay with him getting low on the weekends when I’m able to test (and can take a nap during the day unlike work days:joyful:) but what I’ve learned so far, is Blaze does what he wants, he’s in charge :rolleyes:

    He had small snacks of MC @ +2, 2.5, 3, 3.5 so this would be his first LC snack

    I hope it wasn’t overkill to give MC so much, I just wanted him to stop dropping so drastically

    I gave LC, will test again in 30 minutes. If he’s up a bit or about the same, should I not feed?

    LC would be OK, and I think you can move to hourly testing. You want two rising tests in a row, without influence of carbs, before calling it a night, I won’t be up for your next test.
