Two Bengals In St. Louis Need a Home

I know that many humans decide they cannot keep their felines for many reasons. Sometimes, these reasons are silly. They complain about how we felines leave too much fur on the furniture, or other things like that. But sometimes, the reason they must give up their felines is a valid one.

Jacey, for example, did not get the attention she needed when the human who took care of her went to boarding school. The human who purchased her did their best, but they simply could not give her the attention she needed. And Jacey, being a smart bengal, managed to find a way to entertain herself. She escaped from the house, furiends, and climbed onto the roof a lot and that is why Jacey’s former humans put her up for adoption. The human, Koji, and I are all happy they did, but these humans miss and love Jacey.

There are kind humans in St. Louis who are in a similar situation. They moved to St. Louis because they are doing a medical residency. This means they do not have much time to spend at home. And on top of that, they have a tiny human. They are responsible parents, and they do not let their felines near their tiny human unsupervised. That means their two bengal cats, who are named Stella and Izzie, are not happy.

These humans are heartbroken, but they realize they must do what is best for three year old Stella and seven year old Izzie. That means they must send them to a new home and Great Lakes Bengal Rescue is helping with this.

Stella and Izzie are playful, affectionate, and always use their litter box. They do scratch the furniture. But they will stop if they get appropriate things to scratch and the play time they want and need.

Can you help make a sad situation a happy one by helping these felines find a home? If you can, and you live near St. Louis, please contact Great Lakes Bengal Rescue. And if you cannot, please share this story. Hopefully Stella and Izzie find a good home soon.

November 18 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. I wish I had better news, but I do not. The average was not too bad. For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 219. We like to keep it below 200, but this is below the level where it starts to cause problems. Still, the week before, my blood glucose averaged 165.

What is more concerning than the average is how my blood sugar crashes sometimes. The human does not know why. I eat all of my noms, and the dose of insulin I am getting does not change. But it crashes anyway.

And then, because I am hypoglycemic, the human does not want to give me any insulin. That causes my glucose levels to spike. We do not like this roller coaster.

The human thinks he is going to get my blood sugar to a level where we want it, and then he will reduce the amount of insulin I get slightly. You will see it in the data for next week.

We hope that will work. But we do not know. All we can do is experiment with it and see how it works.

Koji and Me Relaxing

I will let you know about how things go next week, furiends. Until then, do what I am doing and relax with a furiend.

Cat Saved From Camp Fire Recovering

Yesterday, I shared with you pictures of felines that the kind humans at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine were caring for. Today, I will share with you the story of another very lucky feline who was saved by kind humans.

These kind humans came from San Mateo County, California. They traveled to Butte County in order to help fight the Camp fire, which is the deadliest fire in California’s history.

The firefighters were checking on a property, and they saw an injured feline in the bushes. They went over to the feline to see if they could help. The feline, who they have given the name Foster to, decided one of the firefighters could be trusted. Foster quickly came to the firefighter and asked for help.

Foster Rescued By Firefighters

Not surprisingly, the poor feline was dehydrated and malnourished. Foster also suffered burns to their paws and whiskers. The firefighters gave Foster noms and water, and took the rescued feline to an animal welfare organization.

Furiends, it is sad to see all the devastation from the Camp fire. But it makes things a little better when we hear these stories of survival.
