    Do the usual +12 test just before you would feed him. If it's below 200, DON'T FEED, wait 20 minutes and retest. If it's higher after 20 minutes but not yet over 200, repeat the don't feed/wait 20 minutes routine. Test again. If it's over 200 you can give insulin but I'd drop the dose to 1.5 u. Post here with the BG numbers and ask for help before giving insulin. I'm saying that instead of 1.75 u because Humulin is a faster acting insulin that can drop them quickly and a 2 u starting dose is high-ish in a newly diagnosed kitty.

    You can stop now. No shot tonight. Post here for advice in the morning. I also suggest that you put all the BG data you have into your spreadsheet. We always look at that before offering advice. :)
