    So I do our routine at 11 and 11 ( I’m in the restaurant biz) On Friday and Saturday, I work a bit later and will most likely be home closer to 11:30pm. Is this ok? I hope!
    Thanks fellow cat lovers!!

    Being off by a half hour shouldn’t be a problem. A late shot can act like a decrease but a half hour shouldn’t be an issue.

    Thanks for responding. What do you mean by “decrease”?

    A half hour shouldn't be an issue. And you can even stagger the surrounding shots to compensate a little. Maybe an 11:15 on the surrounding mornings. That gives you a little leeway if you are late.

    If you shoot an hour or more late it can act like giving less insulin and an hour early can act like you face an increase in insulin. But 15-30 minutes shouldn’t cause any issues.

    Heres another question...would I know if I shot in a muscle? Something felt a little different this evening. She didn't react differently, the skin just felt a little thicker. It was on her scruff area, but a bit farther down than usual. ;)
