I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
Hello, furiends. You may have noticed that my website was not working for a few days. That is because of a billing issue with the company that provides the hosting. You see, the human’s credit card was used fraudulently, and when the human got a new one, he forgot to update the information for the hosting company.
But now everything is okay, and I am back online. And I want to tell you about one of my fellow diabetic cats who needs a home. I learned about him through Diabetic Cats in Need.
Sadly, before Ozzy came to Chesapeake Cats and Dogs, his diabetes was untreated. And because of this, he developed neuropathy, where his hind legs don’t work properly. The humans in white coats are hopeful he will recover with proper treatment of his diabetes.
Ozzy loves humans, and he enjoys posing for the camera. He will purr loudly when his humans pet him. And he also will roll all over to help them find the right spot to pet.
Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. The human told me that many humans celebrated St. Patrick’s day yesterday. He said that a lot of humans drank things that made them clumsier and louder than normal. I do not know why you humans do this, but if you enjoy it, that is fine.
I would like to remind you that St. Patrick is not the only saint whose day is March 17. There is also St. Gertrude, who is the patron saint of cats.
Now on to my blood sugar readings. For the week, they averaged 120. That is lower than the 147 we saw last week. The human and I are a little concerned because we had many days where they were lower than we’ve seen in the past. And we also had some days where they were too low for me to get my insulin.
Even on the days where my blood sugar was at levels that could cause problems, I nommed quickly and it went up. But the human is concerned. He is not sure if maybe it is time for us to go with lower insulin doses.
I would not mind that. And neither would the human, because my insulin requires many green paper things! Less insulin means each vial lasts longer and the human saves those green paper things.
Reggie is the cat you see in most of Goose’s scenes. According to his human, he is good at just about everything. Gonzo likes to be held, so he starred in scenes where Goose was being held. Archie has more personality, so he went into scenes where Goose needed to be feisty. And Rizzo does a lot of things well, so he could go into any role.
And the humans in the movie took the feelings of the felines into account. For example, when actors were in costume and the felines didn’t like it, they gave the felines time to get used to the costumes.
Furiends, many of you have seen Captain Marvel and the human tells me most humans liked it. But I want to go and see it, just so I can see the four felines who helped play Goose!
