    Does he need an increase? Still at 4.5 units

    Yes, Tucker does need an increase. Just go up to 4.75. I doubt he will regulate there. But we are inching towards it.

    I will be on travel Tuesday - Saturday this week, to the Big Apple.

    The boys got cooked Tilapia tonight. I had some too. Very tasty. We feed Leo on a raised set of plates to help him swallow.

    What a weird day for numbers! Morning test was ok, went up 4 hours later and then the PM test was 13.2? He's super happy though. He's 'trilling' around Teddy and Daisy and sharing their climbing castles, playing tag etc. He's eating a whole packet of the BARF and then gets his 'good boy' treats of cooked chicken inbetween. I am not allowed to drive yet so the chicken wings will have to wait until someone is around to drive me over. I'm thinking the giblets might be the best idea as I think we have tried wings before and there was a lot of waste. Where do I find giblets at Woolies?

    What is Tilapia?? And NYC, how exciting! I've never been. Do post a photo or two if you think of it. I've gone up to the 4.75 even though his pre shot tonight was actually one of his lower pre shots.

    The giblets are in the section where the chicken hearts, kangaroo meat and turkey products are.......well they are there in our WW. They are in a prepackaged sealed container. Sold by the 500 grams.
    Just buy a couple of wings and devide them into three at the joints.

    Will the giblets be as helpful to keeping their teeth healthy as chicken wings? I can't believe a whole tray of them is only 2.50. How often do they need to eat them to keep their teeth clean? Thanks!

    If your cats will eat them by knawing at them to eat the meat, yes they will do a good job of helping to keep the teeth clean. It is the tearing off of the meat by the side teeth that helps keep them clean. They usually go from side to side trying to tear the meat off. Giblets are pretty tough.
    Harry is such a guts, he just goes gulp, gulp and its gone. That's why I like bones for him, it forces him totear off the meat.
    Offer them one each every couple of days and see how they go.
    Yes they are cheap.
    He might go into blue tonight!

    I see, I'll try the giblets first and see how they go (because they look so clean and easy and I'm lazy). I'm hoping for the blues! Should I test him again tonight?? Thanks Bron!

    Yes I would. He could easily drop lower if you have only got a +3 and it would be interesting to see how low he can go. Don't think he will drop really low but it would be good to see if he could surf for a few hours in the blue.

    I love the pic, I love the boys. Where's Chinus, didn't she get any? I love the table settings too. Whatever works. I might try that with Idjit, perhaps he would be less messy.

    Tilapia is a white fish.

    Good luck with the dose increase!

    Will take a some cell phone pics of NYC. Weather here is 90 degrees.
    Tilapia is a small white fish. I like it too. The kittehs absolutely love it.

    "Where's Chinus, didn't she get any?"
    LOL, that's what Theresa always says. I need to post pics of Chinus once in awhile. She doesn't like Little Dude because he competes for attention. I bet many cats are like that.

    For Tucker - just look at those baby blues showing up in the spreadsheet. And a 10.5 on July 11. I love it. They look marvelous. Now there may be a pattern emerging. Some cats have lower numbers at night because they eat less. Keep both AM and PM doses the same for now. Probably a move to 5.0 will be needed.
