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. I apologize for not being able to tell you about my blood sugar readings yesterday. The human had to go in to work early, and he did not get a chance to help me tell you about them. But do not worry, furiends. Everything is okay.
Last week, my blood sugar levels averaged 214. That is higher than the week before, where they averaged 194. We missed two readings, however, because the human was away. Do not worry, though. I had kind humans staying here who gave me my insulin shot.
The human warned them against picking up me and Koji. He told them we would tolerate it for a little bit, but then we would get annoyed and they would not like it. They could not resist with Koji, but they were smart. When he started to squirm, trying to escape, they let him go. They did not even try with me, because after I saw what they did to Koji, I gave them a look that warned them not to try.
Koji and I enjoyed having other humans here, but we were glad when the human came back. I was less nervous than Koji, because I knew the human would come back. Koji was much more happy to see him, and he ran to the door and hugged the human’s leg when the human arrived.
Silly Koji. He needs to learn that the human will not give him up like his former humans did!
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully, they will be a little lower.
Many humans say that felines and canines do not get along. Humans even have a phrase, fighting like cats and dogs. But furiends, many of us felines and canines get along very well.
Meet Coco and Chico. Coco was suffering from mange when she was in a shelter. But as much as this bothered him, he was in better shape than his canine furiend Chico. A cruel human had put rubber bands on Chico’s mouth and they were so tight that they had to be surgically removed.
While they were in the shelter, these two became close. And Coco became Chico’s protector. Two kind humans came in to the shelter looking for a dog, and they met Chico. But then they saw that Coco was protecting him, and they decided “we can’t separate them.”
Soon, both Coco and Chico were on their way to their new home. And their humans loved having them both. “We’ve had the most beautiful moments with them” since the four legged family members came home, one of the humans said. “We haven’t laughed so much in the entire year.”
These two became furiends during very difficult circumstances. And now, their friendship will continue in their new home. So do not believe humans who tell you felines and canines cannot get along!
Hello, furiends. It is time for me to update you on my blood sugar readings for the week. If you have been following my glucose levels, you know that we’ve had issues over the past week. Of course, the average is not so bad. But we do not like the big swings we have been seeing.
The good news is that after I nommed, even though I went without an insulin shot, my blood sugar levels did not go too high. They went higher than we like, but one shot and they were back under the levels that cause problems long term.
Hopefully this trend will continue and I will get my blood sugar levels back under better control.
We had an interesting week last week beyond my blood sugar readings. It rained very hard one day, and the human had to close the windows to keep the inside from getting wet! We did not like this, because we like to smell what is going on outside.
But the human tells me that the rain is good for us, and that we need it. And Koji and I entertained ourselves by watching the rain fall. We do not get to see it too often.
We may see more rain this week, so Koji and I will have fun watching it. Hopefully my blood sugar readings will return to more stable levels, too.
