Hello, furiends. I was not happy when I heard the news about my fellow bengal cat Duke. Duke and I later became more similar when he developed diabetes, so I became even more attached to him. I am sad he has left us. But I am happy that the beginning and end of his life was with kind humans who cared for him deeply. And I am sure he is glad that he left us with those kind humans around him to say goodbye.
But as the human reminds us, eventually, all of us, whether we have four legs like me or two legs like him, will leave us. All we can do is enjoy the time we have with each other.
And one thing that is making the time the human and I spend together more pleasant these days is my blood sugar. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 124. That is much lower than the 179 we saw last week. The human and I are even happier because the blood sugar levels we are seeing are in the normal range. If the white coated humans did not know I was diabetic, they would not diagnose me as such.
One of the things the human did is switch my noms. He did not do this because he wanted to. Instead, he did it because they did not have our normal noms in the store. When he did it, he noticed two things. First, my stools became firmer and less smelly. And, he noticed that my blood sugar levels seemed to drop.
He does not know if this is just a random development that has nothing to do with the noms switch. But as long as this continues, he is not going to go back to the older noms.
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully, the trend with them continues, furiends.
