So I lost my Mao on Feb 1st... the weather's been nasty and I wasn't able to secure a ride to get Mao's ashes until today but I wanted to ask about Fena's behavior. She's still OTJ - I test her 3 times a week in the morning, always in the greens - hovering 70's to 80's on average. Still on low carb wet food, tons of water. Since Mao though she's been... different. I thought it was grief and loss at first - exceedingly clingy, crying when I'm not in sight, etc. but it's changed a bit now? Now for whatever reason (and I hope to go it isn't because she's the lone cat) all of her eating troubles are GONE. She eats beautifully now - I don't have to chase her anymore with her dish! She loves her food, her BM's still need help with Miralax but she's.... gosh I dunno how to word it. Energetic now, playful! It's like she's "woken up" or something... she wants to snuggle all the time still, but NOW doesn't mind if I snuggle her "too much" or maneuver her, etc. She wants to play all the time now too. Also, her eyes are always dilated - big. To check them I shine a flashlight in her eyes and I see them change, but I read big pupils is a sign of a happy cat.... ? I also always used to have to tell her, "do easy" with her claws even when clipped - since Mao died, I haven't had to ONCE. She insists on touching my face and my neck but NEVER with claws, like she's "petting" me back? She's just.... so much MORE hands on, in-your-face and so much more gentle. Even now she's behind me on a bench in my living room, in one of their toy boxes - she has one of their stuffed mouse toys in her claws and keeps slapping/tapping my back with it then making happy noises to herself and playing with it.... in the going on 10 years I've had them.. her.... she's never been like this? Anyway I had to leave the house today, the 1st time since Mao... her BG was 88 this morning (7am). I fed her, loved on her, etc. Then got ready to go. I came home and tested her around 1pm and BOOM, her BG was 279 - could this be from stress..? In case it was I gave her some freeze dried treats and snuggled her then retested at 3pm (about 45 min ago) and she was down to 156. I'll keep watching but.... help?
