a good moses day

earlier this week my vet changed moses' insulin dosage, bumping it up quite a bit based on some blood glucose testing.

well, it was too much, too fast. the change in moses was immediately obvious the next day-- he was listless, slept probably 22-23 hours (i watch him on a webcam during the day), and would eat for only a few moments at a time.

so we bumped it back down, and then yesterday i completely fouled up his dosing schedule, resulting in skipping his night time dose so i could give him an on-schedule dose this morning so my cat sitters tonight and tomorrow aren't having to come over at 2am to take care of him.

i felt horrible guilt about skipping a dose even though i knew it was the logical thing to do-- but much to my surprise it did him a world of good! he's completely back to himself today, even came and woke me up this morning.

i can tell he feels good today and he seems happy. yay! i like it when my kitty has a good day, and this makes me feel a lot better about going out of town tonight.
