    I know I haven't updated my Sheet in a while,sorry sold our old house and moved into a new one its been a crazy couple of months. But I am still checking and recording Rocky's levels. He's still on .5 he's been having good numbers. Am's are about 250-280 his Pm's are around 260-310 . He hasn't been over 315 in the last month and his lowest has been 210 . I noticed last week I fed him and he didn't eat all of it. Normally he does. I thought maybe because I had fed him a big "snack" about a hour or so before. I fed him this Am he didnt want to eat he just sat there looking at his food . He was at 275 I held off his shot because I didnt want to give it to him and him not eat. I left to work after so I am not sure if he ate at all . I did recently buy him some FF treats But I only give him a few every couple of days. What would not make him want to eat hes usually begging for food. ?

    Is he in a new house right now and still getting used to it? I've had cats that love the car and others that hid behind the furnace and even the fridge. Surround him with everything that smells and looks like what he knows. When you say "I left to work after so I am not sure if he ate at all" is there another dog or cat that may have eaten his food. It's always something.

    Do you have his weights? That's one way of knowing for sure. It might not be as bad as it looks but obviously better to keep an eye on this. I've looked everywhere for a baby scale and can't find one, that would be handy for all of us. Babys-R-us doesn't have a clue what I'm talking about.

    Is he pooping? I would check him for ketones, just to be safe.

    So he responds to you when you talk, make eye contact and walk. Is it normal for him to go in the garage? We keep all the nasty household stuff in there so that's a forbidden zone. I'm just looking for the real odd stuff; swallowed something or ate a dead mouse. The things they don't get into in the house. And his weight went up since August and now it's down?

    You can get urine ketone test strips at the pharmacy.

    Yes we feed them in the garage so the dog doesnt eat the food and the litter box is in there. I think his weight has stayed the same he doesnt look like hes lost any weight

    Maybe pick up some other kinds of food too. Might have gotten a bad batch. My cats love Friskies, but I bought several cans of the turkey and they would eat any of it! Kept eating the other flavors though...

    I don't have the medical knowledge so that's why I'm looking at the unusual things. I'm not trying to panic you with amateur vet talk. We had a cat that swallowed a staple, who knows what's outside. Can you keep him inside for 7 days and see what happens? I've even seen a dog that pooped out a watch battery.

    We have young kids so our garage is pretty neat , We have everything in boxes put away we keep it swept up . He's never really been an outside cat he likes to go in the back yard and lay down from time to time but not very often . I will defiantly be watching him

    If he doesnt start eating, you may need to call the vet. If the miss a day or two of eating it can affect their liver.
