      hey,
      Well i have been on the feline diabetic forum and found that everyone is doing this USA protocol where you remove dry food completely and put them on wet botiza is what i did and you get her readings before insulin and dose her depending what the reading was and she had a 33 level which is extreme and now today we got it down to 20.3 so very chuffed at the moment, she is being naughty though she keeps attacking the kittens for no reason not sure if she has moods from the diabetes or its just her personality.

      How are yours today

      Yeah she is 3 years old diabetic, so she requires insulin twice a day but tbh she is on kitten food at her age not good for her it may be able to be controlled with diet better than it is now!
      I'm actually really lucky all my cats are really adaptable when we first brought the kittens in they hissed at all of eat other including the big ones. But a week after that they are all best buddies the 3 kittens snuggle up to dexter every night and the kittens themselves are inseparable so I'm expecting a bit of sulking and hissing but they will adjust.

      awwwww bless her, well dex is going out only really 2-3 tomes a week and only for a couple hours, I'm trying to get him to stop being OBSESSED with outside but he is really stubborn lol. Although if the weather is bad i refuse to let him out lol that does not please him i can tell you that. I've found with dex though that if there is a indow open where he can go sit and get fresh air he is not too bad. I have my foster cat coming today as well so everything is about to get unsettled for a day or two lol

      how was the 'getting them inside' tonight easy or bad

      After her meal she went into her hideaway which is a good size cupboard under the stairs and stayed there until 9.00pm when I got the dreamies out. She loves her food and the temptation was too much. Very much after that she wasn`t too bad. She seemed fine this morning and when I was getting dressed she jumped onto my bed for a few mins and layed down. She doesn`t realise yet that the duvet cover is not for scratching on lol. Anyway she is out now and I hope she is better tonight. To answer your question raggie doll no she didn`t try to get out after her meal. Upto two years ago I had a pair of litter sisters and I was able to understand them as I had them from 9 weeks old. Rebel was nearly 13 and Abby was 15 when bless them they passed away. Teaching and understanding adult cats is a different game all together. Thanks raggie doll

      LOL don't worry about rambling lol
      Sometimes they get freaked out and stay like that for the night good memory cats i know here we've had a lot of fireworks so that could of been it. Its always a worry with our babies. is she trying to get out

      Sounds like you have him under control lol
      I am now going down stairs to say good night to them both. Puss will stay downstairs but Shadow pick and chooses different parts of the house to sleep. My room last night. Nice chatting and see each other online soon. Night

      well he hasn't been out for a week, so still sulking lol
      Problem with dex is if i let him out he'll go out for ages and especially when he's been kept in so bit by bit doesn't work for him, i will let him out for a bit in the morning if i let him out early he will come back lunch time and then he's in but let him out 12pm he will stay out till 11 at night he's a nightmare like that. But tbh i have the 3 kittens who won't be going out at all so i can't be leaving the back door open all day

    My hobbies are gardening, watching tv for a few hours to unwind and teasing the cats.
    I only get to see my partner at the weekends as there is 140 miles between us but we have been together for over 11 years so it must be working. When I took Shadow on I had no intension of getting a cat but he was living rough and he was looking after two ginger kitten brothers and i am sure Shadow was not related. By Christmas 2010 I had 9 ferals coming to be fed and with the help of CP all were doctored. Some were kept and some had to be returned to living outside. CP were going to keep Shadow so I asked to have him. Puss Puss was only about 4 months old when I first set eyes on her on Christmas eve 2010 and she was one of the cats returned outside. She continued to come for food and now she has lost a lot of her feral instincts. She now lives with us since mid Oct `11 and She and Shadow are getting on so well.
