    Yes! Both of us of course. Well it definitely gets his attention, I think he likes the quacks and the moos. LOL

    Thanks Carla and Tanya! Wow it's so fun for Squeaky and me, having you two as friends! Squeaky is feeling a bit slammed by the bounce but it's a lovely sunny day so we will make an excursion outside to walk in the grass today. I hope the two of you are doing well! And your kitties too!

    +3 = 185, Is there sleep in my future? What time should I retest or is Squeaky off the hook for tonight? Thanks.

    I think you’ll want another test, what are your thoughts on timing?

    He eats whenever he wants. Except for the two hours pre-shot. I take away the food.

    It was a decent drop, you could encourage a bit of a snack though if you want.

    Okay he is sound asleep now..... I can usually tell where his BG is roughly, if he is drinking a lot of water it is high. If he eats more, it is low.

    My guess is, he is going to bounce now.

    Jan, I think he's due for another increase? With TR, you increase by 0.25 every 6 cycles unless you see greens

    I am going to tag @Wendy&Neko since Squeaky is on Budesonide which is a corticosteroid. I have no experience with those. Wondering if that's elevating his numbers...

    Thanks for looking after us, Bhooma!!!! We just got Squeaky off prednisilone and on budesonide .... for his GI tract. Others have said that budesonide targets the GI tract and doesn't affect BG numbers. I'm actually seeing an improvement in Squeaky, he's obviously feeling better from the change.

    Wow six cycles already? Hmmm, no greens...... I'll be interested in what Wendy says. Thanks to both of you, and to Tanya also.

    I told the vet yesterday that it's not Squeaky's diabetes, it is OUR diabetes. I play just as active a role in this as he does!

    Doesn't impact BG numbers in the majority of cats. ECID. I waffled a bit in the quote Bhooma found too. Glad he's feeling better from the change.

    You can wait longer to increase with blues (6-10 cycles), but you've gone 8 and seen nothing but high blues. Time for that increase.
