    Good morning all:bighug: Elmo woke me early , was 102 at + 9.5 so gave some MC trying to take some oomph from the possible bounce . Let's see where this cycle takes us :rolleyes::cat: Still shoot 1.5 in 40 minutes ? @carfurby

    Looks like he's bouncing again and you can shoot his normal dose.

    Oh dear, here he goes! Looks like it's fixing to be another day where you both get a break.

    Elmo, what did you do last night, anyway?

    I'd stick to that formula right now. I seems to be working pretty well number wise. He's dropping but not like a stone.

    Elmo is just full of surprises, isn't he?

    This is really very exciting-- despite hitting blues (and who knows what else???) last night, he doesn't seem to have any intention of bouncing today. He's learning it's OK! (and the early feeding strategy may be paying off, too)

    QUESTION ??????? Are there general tips as to when to stop steering ? And what to do after ? How long after steer stop do you watch to hope ( thinking of last night aka early this AM ) that the dive has leveled off ?

    antijinx-emoticon.png Elmo's "bounce" today seems much more tempered than it's been. And if Elmo is happy with his snacks all the better. Too bad you're on continual kitchen service though! Is Elmo tipping you well for your stellar table service? :p

    Beth every cat is different. Elmo has been dropping drop like a stone, bouncing to the moon but he clears bounces quite quickly. He seems to do both rising and dropping abruptly whereas some cats just slide up and down those bounces. It's really just knowing your own cat and Elmo is being a bit unpredictable right now so it's hard to give you "general" tips that will work for him but I think I'd be looking for his drop to be a max of 30 (maybe even 20) points in 30 minutes before letting up a bit on testing right now.

    I'd hold off and not feed him at all right now and see what he does. We want to keep the drops a little more gentle but not stop them. And I'd stick to LC if possible now.

    Same formula as before I assume so yes I think you can call it a night. Just leave him some grub to munch on while you catch up on your beauty sleep.
    Sweet dreams.
