Gigi is up for adoption



So Gigi's blood sugar levels were stabilizing out at just over 100 last week, and then started dipping regularly below 100. She wasn't putting on any more weight, but I think it was because I wasn't paying enough attention to her. Having Charlotte in the house was a distraction.  I would love on her until she seemed to tell me that it was enough, but then I would go and pay attention to Charlotte - who Gigi did not like at all. I tried several times to introduce them to one another, and Gigi was only happy when Charlotte was locked up.

Gigi on the scale
Gigi got used to the routine of testing, weighing then food..
she wanted me to feed her, not take pictures
Since Charlotte needed me more, I made the decision to send Gigi back to the shelter to go up for adoption. If Charlotte wasn't here I probably would have kept her for another week or two, but it probably would have been for selfish reasons, not because she needed me.

She was less than pleased about being boxed up again, but she didn't seem overly stressed once we got to the shelter. They have her as diet restricted and will explain to the new owners that keeping her on a low carb diet will be in her best interest.  Hopefully she will be adopted quickly.
