Hello, my furiends. Today is Caturday, and I am enjoying a fun day. I like to remind you humans that diabetic cats like me need a little more attention and care than cats without the disease, but that we are just as fun and playful as any cat.
I started off the day with my typical routine. My human wakes up at the same time every day so that he can give me my insulin shot. I know when that will happen, so I sit on the nightstand and wait for him to wake up. Well, this morning, I decided I wanted to have some fun with him, so I hopped onto the bed, sat down next to his head, and started to purr loudly and give him sandpaper kisses.
When I do this, he smiles and gives me a few pats, but he does not wake up. He may be only human, but he knows that if he gets up when I do this, I will do it earlier and earlier. So all I get to do is bond with my human a little. I will take it.
Of course, after my human’s alarm went off, he got up, and gave me my food, took my blood sugar reading, and gave me my insulin shot. This morning’s blood sugar reading was still a little higher than where we want it, at 223, but it is lower than the danger level of 300.
And then the fun really began. Today is the day where my human waters the plants out on the balcony, so guess what Jacey and I got to do? We got to observe to make sure he did it right. That is always fun. We nibbled on some catnip and Jacey ate some decorative grass. But then it got really interesting when a hummingbird came by and decided to investigate one of the flowers. Both Jacey and I wanted to pounce on the bird, but our human didn’t let us. He made us go back inside for a bit.
Silly human. Doesn’t he know that diabetic cat or not, I want to pounce on birds and that I am nature’s perfect predator?
Well, I hope my Caturday gets even more fun and that you have as much fun as I will!
