    LOL!!! Catcat is showing you how to relax! I'm picturing yoga kitties, but how do you tell a meditating cat from a sleeping one?

    sleeping -- eyes at least half closed, breathing slow and steady (unless he's in REM sleep)
    meditating -- eyes open but unfocused, breathing more quickly, ears twitching at times, tail moving too

    difference seems to be in level of alertness -- when he's meditating it's as if he's waiting for things to happen; when he's asleep he's letting his system rest

    I LOVE these pictures!!!

    I have a yoga cat calendar, but the little kitten above is better than any calendar picture.
    Gorgeous examples Paula!

    Catcat is a better clockwatcher than I am, he just reminded me it's time for morning snack (+3) = 228

    kitten yoga pic off the internet .. didn't find one with Catcat's sort of meditation, lying down .. I think he was listening to his stomach churn and pulse -- sometimes I'd swear he gets the hiccups too

    will give it another day or two but this is starting to look like a failed reduction -- we'll see

    .75 seems to be the dose to keep him surfing, probably what I need is a slightly skinny .75 because the .5 trends out to be flattish yellow after the depot adjusts

    Candy,
    I was in a similar situation, already had calipers and tried .62. Ended up going back to .5, but keep thinking about that pretty good in-between dose.

    Catcat just reminded me to quit watching football (Raiders and Cardinals) and do his PS and feed him DINNER

    PMPS 217 -- better than earlier

    game is looking like a blowout anyway, opposite what I was expecting

    mister Clockwatcher Catcat reminded me again that it's time for evening snack

    +3 = 144 so he may dip into the greens tonight, or low blues at least -- chicken thigh is defrosting ...

    see if it holds up in the morning -- test may show yellow or blue, unlikely to be green -- depot is transitioning from the higher dose to the current one,
    though I still suspect we may need to increase back to the dose that gave us those pretty greens -- just not lime ...

    what I might do then, is feed food slightly higher in carbs .. into the 5 6 7 percentages rather than the 1 2 3 sometimes 4 that he's been on
