I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
Hello, furiends. It has been a rainy week around here. Last Thursday, it was raining hard and the wind was blowing. The noise of the rain hitting the windows startled both me and Koji, and we went over to see what was happening. Silly Koji even swatted at some of the rain drops that hit the window.
The human tells me this is good because we need the rain. Hopefully we will be out of our drought soon. It will be nice if that happens. And we will get more rain this week. I do not think we felines will be startled by the rain drops hitting the window this time, because it is not supposed to rain as much.
Enough about the rain, though, furiends. On to my blood sugar readings.
For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 163. That is lower than the 197 we saw last week, and it is a good average. It is not so low that we worry about hypoglycemia and it is also not high enough for us to worry about complications from diabetes.
What is even better is that all of the individual blood sugar readings were okay. Some were higher than we like but nothing too bad. And none of them were lower than we like.
Hopefully this continues, and I will have good news for you next week.
Hello, furiends. Today I am a happy feline. I hopped up onto the bed about an hour before the talking box started to talk. And even though the human woke up briefly, he went back to sleep. I got to spend about an hour snuggling with the human. Then, after the talking box started to talk, I got my noms!
That is a good way to start the morning. And today, the sun is out. Koji and I initially wanted to go on the balcony to work on our fur tans, but we decided it was too chilly. So we decided to come back in and we will enjoy sun puddles while staying warm inside.
Now that I have told you about my morning, I will tell you about my blood sugar readings. For the week, they averaged 197. That is higher than the 183 we saw last week. But, there is a simple explanation. Everything was okay until Saturday evening, when my blood sugar levels dropped to a point where I could not get insulin.
Because of that, my glucose levels jumped. And when that happens, it takes a few shots to get things back to normal. It is annoying, but it is not too bad.
Well, I am off to join Koji in enjoying a sun puddle. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week.
Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. I have to tell you the past week has been an interesting one. It has rained a lot over the past few days.
And it was very windy on Saturday. Even though Koji and I were inside, we could tell how windy it was. Lots of things went flying past the window, and sometimes, it got so windy it made the windows shake a little.
For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 183. That is almost the same as last week, when they averaged 182. We did have one evening when my blood sugar fell a lot lower than we like. But I yelled at the human for noms, and he put them down. And as soon as he did, I nommed very quickly. The human was worried that I would throw up, but everything stayed down.
This made it a difficult day to stay relaxed, but we felines are very good at that. So we managed to make it work.
And because I nommed so much and did not get an insulin shot, my glucose levels did jump. But that’s okay, because we got them back under control.
It is raining today again, so I am glad that I am an indoor only feline. Koji and I will enjoy watching the rain fall down from the windows. And we should dry out by next week, when it will be time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings again.
