    Posting to make sure I follow protocol as my kitties numbers are in the 50’s and trending down the last hour.

    When they hit greens, we feed a little with every test just to keep them surfing the low numbers and prevent a drop below 50. Please feed him a little now.

    ETA: His usual food should be fine.

    thank you - I just tested him & he seems to be trending up now. He’s at 67 & I just have him some food.

    Next time you test and hit a green, feed a little. A little food every hour will help him stay in those lovely healing greens! :)

    Should I continue to test every hour? Or 1/2 hour?
    At what point do you think it’d be safe to go to bed?

    Did he go up to 67 without food? Last meal was at +3? If yes, it is safe to stop testing and go to bed.

    When you get more than one test in an hour, you stack up the numbers in the same cell like this. You will have to manually fill in the colour.

    Yes, increased without food & last meal was at +3. The food brought him up to 103 now. (& I fixed my chart)

    Thank you SO much for your help! Greatly appreciated. Have a good night!
