    Hi! I can't stay with you but you shot a 77 very recently (02/15). You can stall - do not feed and test in 20 minutes from your first test but some kitties do drop lower without food at the end of the cycle. If you shoot, make sure you have ability to monitor, strips, HC/honey (just as precautions :)).

    You can shoot any number over 50 with a human meter. I would not have stalled. Feed him and shoot.

    gave him 1/2 tsp of maple which is quite a lot. Maybe overreacting here but do not want to reduce this dose that seems to fit him well.

    That could be a little too much maple.

    once I gave him 1/4 of tsp at +2 , similar number and it was not enough. This is why I gave him more.

    more syrup wears off quickly no? I think he is going up. Maple syrup was given at +2 and this is +3.5.

    Of course. He’s a cat. Part of being a cat with fd is what you do one day may not have the same reaction the next day.

    You made it so he didn’t earn a reduction so that’s a win.
