    I forgot to post fbg. It was 5.3 which is better than it’s been recently - maybe because I had fish last night ( fresh tuna) and it does seem to make a difference.

    Walking boots on bike so you can ride to an access point and do a country walk?

    Re previous posts, I was thinking of defending one's home and land against invaders. Don't know if I could manage even that ... :(

    6.4 this morning and the KittenCat is bunged up again but seems to feel fine now. I'd planned to walk across the big road to the drugstore but don't like to leave her .... although she is enjoying a nice bath ...

    Yes fish and seafood defo give me better BG than meat. Eggs are good also. I try to get two 3 egg omelettes with spinach or mushrooms in two suppers a week now. I like meat but could never eat it to the exclusion of all else. Next weekend just us two so am going to track down some fish/seafood from the visiting fish seller. Fancy moules but now insure if they are out of season.

    Try giving her some tuna with a little water added. Best a small portion so she eats it all in one go. This works for Daisy.

    I contribute monthly to a charity that rescues both cats & dogs that are beaten & tortured during festivals before being slaughtered & eaten...this is done in the misguided belief it tenderises the meat...wondering @alf_Josiah is that would you would call absurd or your right to freedom of speech or would it be okay if they just did that to the cats?...@Cumberland LI know you would find that disturbing so why are both of you perpetuating this kind of' joke' as if it's no harm at all...several members have asked for the references to pet recipes & eating cats to stop politely...they have explained they find it upsetting...only to be met with sarcasm & derision from some quarters....it is not limiting free speech in any way...it isn't censorship...it's members appealing to others here not to post comments that they find upsetting & disturbing...they are not funny...not absurd or clever...they are cruel & unkind...likely not intentional now the strength of feeling has been highlighted can we please stop the references to cat recipes & the suggestions that they are vermin.

    thanks for the hug... but I do think that afterwards, it will be great to be an owner of less unnecessary stuff galore... I will focus on using my money and time on more travelling and help for my daugther when she is going to study the next 6-8 years...

    I’m worrying about it already - which in turn will make things worse!

    I am not overly sensitive or lacking in appreciating the absurd alf....I work in a very tough profession some of the things I hear & see would shock you ... I just have respect for animals particularly those that are labelled as vermin incorrectly and are the subject of sick jokes.

    I tend to have fish when there’s just the 2 of us as well - it can work out quite expensive otherwise. Agree with eggs too for helping fbg.
    Re moules - in season or not they probably won’t taste as good as when you were on your hols ( that’s what I found anyway)

    Oh yes - so many lovely memories which are worth nothing in monetary terms but so hard to throw away.

    I didn't mean the direction of bg but direction of what to eat more of - fish; and less of - red meat but not because I said so. If the meter shows fish eating = lower bg probably a good guide to follow for a while. Stop worrying.

    Thanks. I will try that. I gave her a little Miralax earlier but would rather give a corrective food like tuna than a medicine. Unfortunately cats don't eat All Bran or drink prune juice. :)

    ...

    I just checked her litter box ... yay!

    I will remember about the tuna fish. :)

    You could always try her with a little cod liver oil too Saskia...you have to be careful with the dosage but your vet should be able to recommend a dose that is not harmful.
