October 7 Blood Sugar Readings

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!

Felines Do Not Belong on Human Heads

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.

My Visit to the White Coated Humans

Hello, furiends. I visited the white coated humans a few days ago, and shared some pictures of my visit. Some of you worried that I was not doing well. It is nice to have kind humans like you concerned about me, but do not worry. I went to the white coated humans for my annual checkup.

When I went, the white coated humans were able to weigh me, check my heart and lungs, and check my internal organs. They had to stop there, because I became annoyed. And in order to get blood from me, they had to give me a sedative. They also took a urine sample and a stool sample while I was sedated.

The white coated humans called to let us know about the results a day later. Furiends, everything looked good. All of my blood readings were in the normal range. There was no sugar in the urine, which is a good sign for a diabetic cat like me.

Because I am a diabetic cat, the white coated humans do an additional test they do not do for cats without diabetes. This test tells them whether my blood sugar is under control. And the results from that made both me and the human happy. The test showed I have well managed blood sugar levels!

The one bad thing that we found is that I have cataracts. But even that is not too bad. The white coated human said I can definitely see things. My vision may be degraded, but at my age, that is not a surprise. Surgery would be expensive and may not bring much relief. So, as long as I am able to get around okay, the human will skip it.

I am happy with the results of my visit to the white coated humans, even though I still do not like going there!

Tiny Feline Saved From Drain Can’t Stop Shaking

I do not blame tiny felines for being nervous when they get rescued. One tiny feline, who was later named Kucil, was so nervous when she got rescued that she was shaking. I do not know if it was because she was very cold, since she came from a storm drain. Or she could have been very scared to be held by the humans who were helping her.

But she clearly needed help. Her fur was dirty and gray. She could barely open her eyes. And she was very weak. The humans who rescued her knew they had to nurse her back to health. They immediately put her in a blanket and put medicine on her paws. Then they took her to their home.

At first, Kucil was so weak she had a hard time nomming. Can you imagine that, furiends? Needing noms so badly that the act of eating was difficult? Fortunately, Kucil got past that point, and she started to nom more than the healthy felines in the home.

Then Kucil decided she needed to make furiends with the other felines in the home. She chose a feline named Lucky to become furiends with. At first, Lucky did not want to be furiends. But Kucil won her over, and now they are best furiends.

Kucil even won over the canine in the home. The canine always respected Kucil. But the humans rescuing Kucil did not know if she would become furiends with the canine. She soon did.

Kucil has come a long way from the scared, dirty, starving feline she was when she was first found. I am glad she has a good home where she gets lots of love from the four legged and two legged family members.
