Hello, furiends. I know that there was a lot of excitement around the conversation that Jacey, Marley, and I had with our human about The Cat Cafe. We are really excited about the human’s plans to showcase adoptable cats so that some of our fellow felines can find furever homes. And while they’re waiting for the right human to come in and adopt them, they will provide humans with purr therapy.
All the excitement did not mean that I did not have to have my blood sugar monitored. Regardless of what’s happening, it’s critical for a diabetic cat like me to test my blood sugar to make sure it stays within a healthy range.
For the week ending March 9, my blood sugar improved slightly. My seven day average was 227, with a high of 278 and a low of 156. The good news is that we stayed below that 300 level that is associated with the dangerous conditions that develop when diabetic cats like me do not get the care they need.
We are still higher than either me or the human would like. Ideally, we’d like to see my blood sugar levels stay below 200. However, given that before I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat, I consistently had higher than average blood sugar levels, I do not think this is so bad. At one point when I was still in Maryland, the humans in white coats had to run a second test to see if I was diabetic or not.
The human was not tracking my blood sugar levels then, so it is very possible that the levels we are seeing now are similar to what we saw before I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat.
I will continue to keep you updated on my blood sugar levels. Know that my human is working very hard to try to make sure they do not get too elevated. And this week, we kept them below dangerous levels even though they’re not where we want them to be.
