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.
Diabetic Cats in Need told me about Sam and I wanted to share his story with you. Sam is a feline who’s going through a lot right now. His human is a college student who lives in San Francisco. Housing prices are very expensive there, and because housing is in high demand, many places that are available do not allow felines or canines.
Sam doesn’t mind his twice daily insulin shots, but he is smart. He does not want to nom on the prescription food, so his human has to mix regular wet noms with it. But when they do that, Sam noms like he should.
He is a friendly and affectionate boy who loves to snuggle with his human. If he is not snuggling with you, he will sleep on your pillow. And this boy is interesting in that he likes canines, but does not get along well with other felines.
Can you help Sam find a good home? If you can, please contact his human. And if you cannot, please share his story so that others can help.
Hello, furiends. Last week, when I told you about my blood sugar readings, I was not happy about them. They were not horrible, but they were higher than we like. This week’s are much better.
For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 154. That is much lower than the 236 from the week before. And more importantly, my glucose readings this week were well below the level where complications will develop over the long term.
What made me even happier is that there were no readings where my glucose levels were low enough to be dangerous. That is good news, furiends. High blood sugar readings cause problems over time, but low ones can cause problems immediately.
Now I will share with you a funny picture. It looks like someone had a box where there were some tiny felines. But someone took that box, and put it near where one of my larger feline cousins lives. Even though my larger feline cousins are bigger than me, they are still cats. And they believe “if I fits, I sits” just like us smaller felines.
So that is what this tiger did. And when he did that, it made for an entertaining picture.
I do not recommend taking that feline home, furiends. The human has many scars from Jacey, Koji and me playing too rough. Imagine what a big feline like this one would do!
A human let their feline investigate the outdoors in the spring of last year. They left the feline, named Bella, outside, and took their small human to school. Now, furiends, I do not recommend this. If we felines are outside, it should be under supervision and preferably in an enclosed area so that predators cannot get to us.
When the human returned home, they expected Bella to do the same thing. But Bella did not return. And as days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months, they started to think they would not see Bella again.
When they arrived at the white coated humans, about an hour’s drive away from their home, they knew right away. Bella greeted them and soon, they were on their way home. Bella purred during the ride home, so you know she was happy to see her humans.
Thanks to a microchip, Bella was reunited with her humans. Make sure to get one for us, furiends. And always supervise us if we are outside.
