OK, I've gotten the insulin shot thing down -- Fred is mildly disinterested. AND, with the help of the heated rice sock, vaseline and treats, the testing thing is going better.....but I'm still stuck on how much food to serve and when. Fred, Bella and Lucy are all on wet food (from Binky's list) and accepting it very well. I read the cans and some articles and came away with the idea that I should serve 1oz of food for each pound of cat per day. That means 15.5 ounces of food for Fred each day. Well, he just won't eat that much. I leave it down, but they just don't seem to eat it like they did the "candy corn" dry food. My vet want me to have food available to Fred (my only diabetic) in case he senses his blood glucose level dropping during the day. Right now he has this annoying habit of waking my around 2:30am for a snack. Wish he'd eat more in the evening and sleep through the night. It's not a problem to leave food for him, but the other cats might eat it. Do you have any suggestions about quantify? Appreciate your help. K.
