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. Last week, when I told you about my blood sugar readings, I was not happy about them. They were not horrible, but they were higher than we like. This week’s are much better.
For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 154. That is much lower than the 236 from the week before. And more importantly, my glucose readings this week were well below the level where complications will develop over the long term.
What made me even happier is that there were no readings where my glucose levels were low enough to be dangerous. That is good news, furiends. High blood sugar readings cause problems over time, but low ones can cause problems immediately.
Now I will share with you a funny picture. It looks like someone had a box where there were some tiny felines. But someone took that box, and put it near where one of my larger feline cousins lives. Even though my larger feline cousins are bigger than me, they are still cats. And they believe “if I fits, I sits” just like us smaller felines.
So that is what this tiger did. And when he did that, it made for an entertaining picture.
I do not recommend taking that feline home, furiends. The human has many scars from Jacey, Koji and me playing too rough. Imagine what a big feline like this one would do!
Hello, furiends. I apologize for not being able to tell you about my blood sugar readings yesterday. The human had to go in to work early, and he did not get a chance to help me tell you about them. But do not worry, furiends. Everything is okay.
Last week, my blood sugar levels averaged 214. That is higher than the week before, where they averaged 194. We missed two readings, however, because the human was away. Do not worry, though. I had kind humans staying here who gave me my insulin shot.
The human warned them against picking up me and Koji. He told them we would tolerate it for a little bit, but then we would get annoyed and they would not like it. They could not resist with Koji, but they were smart. When he started to squirm, trying to escape, they let him go. They did not even try with me, because after I saw what they did to Koji, I gave them a look that warned them not to try.
Koji and I enjoyed having other humans here, but we were glad when the human came back. I was less nervous than Koji, because I knew the human would come back. Koji was much more happy to see him, and he ran to the door and hugged the human’s leg when the human arrived.
Silly Koji. He needs to learn that the human will not give him up like his former humans did!
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully, they will be a little lower.
Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. Last week, I told you that they looked a lot better than they had in the recent past. And that trend continued this week.
For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 158. That is pretty much the same as what we saw last week, when they averaged 161. And when we combine this with the good news from the white coated humans, who found that my blood sugar levels are well managed, it is even better.
Hopefully, furiends, this means that whatever we saw a few weeks ago has come and gone. If it has, that means my blood sugar levels will stay well below the point where complications from diabetes will develop.
Now, on to something more fun. I know that you humans like to take lots of pictures of us felines. And you share them on the internet, and many of you humans love them. But sometimes, humans do silly things in order to get a picture of themselves with their felines.
For example, look at this person who managed to get a picture of his feline on his head. Furiends, that is not good for either the feline or the human!
The human showed me an article that highlighted funny things about selfies with felines, complete with similar pictures to this one. I will share it with you and hope that you enjoy it as much as we did.
That is all for now, furiends. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week next Monday. Hopefully, the good news continues.
