9/28 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, kind humans. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Did you like reading about the Aztec Cats that are near me? How about the great work that Michigan Cat Rescue does? Now that the weekend is over, it is time for me to update you on my blood sugar readings for the week.

For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 226. That is a little lower than what we saw last week, when they averaged 229. We could call them pretty much consistent over the two week period since blood sugar meters have a range of error. The readings for the two weeks are within the range of error, so they are pretty much the same.

The high reading of the week was one where I would be concerned if my blood sugar readings were consistently at that level. It came in at 300. The low for the week came on the morning after the human was away for a long time and one of the people working at the white coated humans came to give me my shot and noms. It was 103.

It seems like my blood sugar readings have stabilized at a level where they will not do harm to me long term, but they are still higher than what we would like to see. It is not ideal, but as long as the human keeps giving me my insulin shots, I should be okay.

I do have a question for you, though. The human has noticed that some of the fur on my hind legs has started to get matted. He does not know if this is something to be concerned about or if I should go to a place where I can get a bath.

In order to try to get this under control, the human has used the Furminator on me. It worked to get rid of a mat under my chin and he hopes it will be the same here. Do you humans have any advice for him?

  1. It’s probably because he’s starting to get his winter coat in. My Henry starts getting mats around this time of year and will have them all season long. Most of the time, gentle brushing will get them out. Sometimes, I have to take an electric razor to them (he’s long-haired so they can get pretty bad). Just make sure there’s no skin caught in the middle.
