A Diabetic Cat Enjoys the Sun

Hello, everyone.  I hope you are enjoying your Caturday.  I sure am.  My human didn’t bug me too much today when I was trying to sleep.  And he let me out on the balcony to work on my fur tan.  I may be a diabetic cat, but I am also a southern California cat.   That means I need to work on my fur tan.

Bagheera the Diabetic Cat Workiing on His Fur TanYou can see me working on my fur tan here.  What do you think?  Is it looking good?  Do I need to get more sun, or am I doing okay?

Have you ever wondered why we felines like to soak up the sun?  Well, one of you humans has done some research into this.  And it’s really interesting.  We like to do this because it helps us conserve energy.  Just like you humans, we are mammals, and about a third of our energy goes into keeping us warm.  So when we can let the sun do it, why not?

My human tells me that you have something called solar energy.  He tells me that it helps power things like the flat glass thing that has pictures which move.  Can you tell my human he needs to stop watching it so much and play with me and Jacey?

It is interesting, isn’t it, that we felines have been using that energy for thousands of years?  Sometimes we are smarter than you humans give us credit for.

So I think I will go and use that solar energy some more.  There is a logical and scientific reason for this diabetic cat to go and enjoy the sun and work on his fur tan.

But there is also a much more fun one.

Sometimes, it just feels good to enjoy the sun.  And that may be the best reason of all for me to work on my fur tan.  What do you think?
