    Hello!

    So, I have an upcoming overnight trip. I cannot take him with me, or find a cat sitter and have no one close to me that feels comfortable testing and giving insulin. (I know it's scary, I can't be mad at that!) I'll be gone for roughly 20-24 hours, during the time frame of the PM shot and AM shot the next morning. How should I handle this? Should I just skip those two shots and pick it back up with the PM shot? Or should I shoot as soon as I get home (late morning), skip PM shot, then pick back up the next AM shot? I realize this is less than ideal but any helpful guidance would be appreciated!

    I’d do the latter. See what others say.

    That's kind of what I was leaning towards too!

    I had to do an 18 hour once. Wasn’t great but I felt better than 24. Squeak is on such a small dose he might not even notice.

    Well I’m glad I’m not the only one that’s encountered this! I feel terrible but my hands are tied. :( Since he’s on a smaller dose, I was hoping the same!
