    prior thread Nov 7

    I let Felix earn a reduction today, since I have to take my parents to a few doctors appointments early next week. Hope it'll hold. He had a little low-carb at +5 and seemed pleasantly surprised to get some with yummy potato flakes mixed in at +5.5.

    We received our FDMB calendars yesterday. It's bittersweet to look through--but mostly sweet.

    I don't know if you know, but you have the wrong date up on your condo :) Do you use the potato flakes to add more carbs? How much do you use? sounds interesting :)

    Oops, thanks--fixed the date.

    Yes, Felix will only eat one kind of wet food, so I can't use medium carb or high carb to bump him up. I've experimented with 1/4 to 3/4 teaspoons of potato flakes (mixed with about a tablespoon of food and about a tablespoon of water). Today he had a 1/2 teaspoon potato flakes, which tends to work pretty well. If he's lower, it seems to be better if I add a few drops of honey rather than adding more potato flakes. The potato flakes stay in his system longer than when I was using only honey or Karo, so when I get the amount right, he surfs.
