    Good morning!
    AMPS 65 shooting 1.5u
    He ate his breakfast on his own! Went right over to it, ate about 1/3. Looked out the window for a minute. Went back to his food, ate about another 1/3. I gave him his shot then gave him a small piece of chicken and set the food up on his testing table (this is our normal procedure). He left the chicken but did take a couple more bites of the ff.

    I left Boomer with 3 food choices last night after he ate his +3 (he ate about half on his own, I fed him the rest of it). He did eat some of 2 of them.

    Dr Larry wanted me to do a 12 hour curve with tests every 2 hours so I think I will do that today since I'm definitely not going anywhere with the freezing rain warning out there. The weather network indicates that we are receiving freezing drizzle now but nothing is coming down in my area.

    Meanwhile since I'm stuck at home today, I'll get some chores done around here, maybe do some online Christmas shopping, and maybe start a jigsaw puzzle!

    Today's photo is a Common Grackle that decided to pose for me.

    Freezing rain out now :eek:
    And I forgot to mention above....the breakfast serving was pretty much a full size serving, not the mini servings I've been giving him.

    Doing the 12 hour curve for Dr Larry, he wanted tests every 2 hours.
    +2 74
    I did a 3 hour test anyways because that's normally Boomer's low. +3 65 I had to push him towards his auto feeder but then he actually ate about 1/2 the food on his own. Then he stood in front of the feeder for about 2 minutes. I waited, hoping he would resume eating. He eventually started to walk away so I scooped the remaining food out onto a plate and he ate some more.
    His appetite does seem better today, so far anyways.

    Good idea NOT to go out! Cars will probably be sliding all over the place. Stay in & relax :)
    Nice to hear Boomer is doing so well!

    Eat yer fuds, Boomer! And surf safe.
    Have a good curve day, Judy! We are expecting snow from the big storm, but it won't begin until late this afternoon.
    I had 9 Goldfinches at my feeders this morning! (recorded for the Feeder Watch project).
    Great pic of the Grackle.

    I think The weather network either flips a coin or plays video from this day last year. We're getting pelted with ice pellets, I opened the door for Marco and he shook his feet. Thanks but no thanks.
    Judy, Wikipedia's photo of the day is bird wildlife. Maybe they take submissions.

    Nice report that Boomer is eating.

    There is an app called Jigsaw Puzzle. The icon is a single puzzle piece. There are a lot of categories and each one has minimum of 4 but usually more in it.

    So glad to see Boomer is eating well for you! And his numbers look fabulous!!

    Interesting bird photo today - it does look as if you said, 'Hold still'...and he did just that! Beautiful as always, Judy!

    You and Boomer have a great evening! And stay inside where it's safe and dry - oh, those winter storms...ugh :(

    PMPS 101 Shooting 1.5u He ate a bit of his chicken ff then turned away. I offered him ocean whitefish and tuna and he ate some of that. His appy seemed better this morning but overall today hasn't been too bad. If he's not more willing to eat at +3 I will give him a mirtz.
