We're going to have to travel soon and will be gone for over a week. We don't have any place where we feel comfortable boarding, but we've found a dependable cat sitter hired who can give shots with confidence. However, she probably won't be familiar enough to our diabetic kitty for glucose testing success. We've been playing with every possible angle to manage her needs while we are gone. She is currently "threatening" to go OTJ - testing too low for a shot about every 2-3 days, so we worry that dosing without testing could be a disaster. We currently do canned food every 6 hours, including overnight with PetSafe timer feeders. The last time we tried to have a cat sitter use these feeders there was a user error of some sort and two of the feeders never opened. The need to reset the lids "just so" and press the right, small button each time they are filled makes them high risk for this sort of problem. We're considering having the cat sitter do a half dose of insulin and feed our usual canned food morning and night, and then using the simpler, drop-down style feeders with the Young Again zero carb for "in-between" snacks. It seems like that would keep Daisy's sugars from going sky-high and also prevent the more dangerous lows. Not a perfect plan - but maybe the best we can do? What do you think? How do you manage time away from your diabetic kitty?
