    Good morning everybody,

    As you will see, some try at changing dose for Small Kitty didn’t work out last week-end... The long

    standing 1.5U dose was doing ok but green were very sporadic, more often was it bringing yellow of bleu. PMPS were discouraging, pink and yellow being the rule, more often than not. There was doubts that SL might be below the horizon at night but could not check it. That’s why I was ready to attempt a failed increase to see what 1.75 could bring.. Small Kitty was quick to say no to this new dose, gravy was on the menu Saturday morning so I could go back to bed with no risk. I had bought those small baggies with real meat in gravy, that’s what both of them were treated with after this light green.

    Night life is still the name of the game for the kitties. The deal is that, at 8 or 9pm the gate closing the cat trap is risen so they can go out for the night. They often forget the time and ask to go out way earlier. It doesn’t change anything, it’s only at bed time (mine) that the gate is open. Amanda says the bad numbers are because of that, that they are going outside. Up to a certain point she’s right, but if they can have fun and not just stay on the couch between meals it’s alright. It’s been a long time tough that they had brought me bird mice or any other living things :)

    This morning is not good, they might have eaten some bad food outside or Small Kitty’s system is just due to rebound. He will come down.. to come back up again… I guess the way to see it is that they’re way better with little control over their juice then they would be in nature…

    Good day everyone, hope you had a good week-end. Mine was spend installing a new hard disk on my desktop while monitoring cat BS, interesting isn’t ? I should have gone for shopping, a new winter coat is in order and a new pair of boots also, but I hate shopping as much as I hate feline diabetes...

    It looks like SK is still being a bouncy kitty. Not being able to monitor at night probably does contribute to that. However, I understand the need to balance out the cats being happy and FD. I hope things are going well for you Sebastien.

    As to going outside? I think it's a quality of life choice- also it controls the pissing .
    I've had 2 cats like sk, who had to go outside. And for one, the outside did kill him. My farming neighbors sprayed their crops with poison, when I was not expecting it. He got a big dose of poison and his kidneys failed. My heart broke. But all my attempts to keep him inside caused him misery, He'd pee to let me know how miserable he was, and then huddle by the door to the outside -wouldn't eat or drink or do anything, but stay at the door, longing for the outside.
    I tell you this, because from my own experience, I am positive that you are doing the right thing for sk.
    I hope you remain well, and sk stays happy.
