Tenth Life Helps Tiny Felines

Furiends, I know that many of you want to help tiny felines. One thing to remember is that if you see tiny felines and their mother is close by, leave them alone. It is likely their mother will come to help them soon. Observe for a while to see if the mother is taking care of the tiny felines.

That will prevent what happened with four tiny felines from occurring. These tiny felines were abandoned by their mother when a well meaning human intervened when she was moving them to safer ground. The mother thought these tiny felines were lost, so they moved on.

But Tenth Life took them in, and they are working hard to give these tiny felines the care their mother would have provided them. Kind humans at the organization are giving them around the cat bottle feeding. They also weigh the tiny felines, help them relieve themselves, and do all the other things a mother would do.

It is hard work, but the kind humans at Tenth Life who do these things enjoy it. They get to spend time with adorable tiny felines. When these tiny felines grow big enough to be adopted, they are happy because they gave them a chance to thrive.

March 31 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. Some of you may be more interested in what happened this week because the human switched my insulin doses. We were seeing too many low readings, and the human did not like this.

After the switch, my blood sugar levels averaged 123 this week. That is much lower than the 177 we saw the week before. But the good news is that we didn’t see any that would put me at a hypoglycemic level.

And that is good news. There is a saying that high glucose readings kill slowly but low ones can kill quickly. So it is better to have my blood sugar readings higher than we like over me being hypoglycemic.

Koji After Exploring the New Refrigerator

We had excitement besides changing my insulin doses this week. The refrigerator we had in our home finally broke down. So we needed a new one. And it was quite interesting when it arrived.

They had to take the front door down, furiends. And that was not good, because Koji ran out the door. The human went and got him, but Koji ran out again.

The human had to put Koji in the bathroom to keep him from running out. And as soon as they put the door up and left, the human let Koji out of the bathroom. He and I immediately started sniffing the new refrigerator, and we put our nose marks on it.

The human thought this was funny, and he thought it was even more funny when Koji quickly hopped onto the top of the new refrigerator to take a nap.

Well, furiends, that is all for now. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Let’s hope they stay under control.

Over 100 Cats Pulled from Toronto Home

It is good for you humans to like us felines. And it is even better when you have some of us in your home. But some humans go too far. And that is exactly what happened in Toronto recently.

More than 100 felines were pulled from a home in Toronto. Toronto Cat Rescue learned about the hoarding situation, and they called Toronto Animal Services and Toronto Humane Society. The three groups worked together to coordinate a response.

Some of the more than 100 felines in a hoarder’s home

A human with Toronto Animal Services said they pulled 105 cats from the home, with more felines still in the home. And they added that current laws allow a maximum of six animals per home.

White coated humans affiliated with the organizations examined the felines. They found them to be generally healthy, although they had fleas, worms, and fur loss. Plus, the felines will need to be socialized so they get used to living in an environment without dozens of other cats around.

Toronto Cat Rescue activated a group of rescue volunteers, and they are fostering around 50 of the cats. All of the cats will be treated and spayed or neutered before become available for adoption.

Humans with Toronto Cat Rescue added that this hoarding situation shows why it is so important to get felines fixed. With each cat capable of producing two litters in a year, humans trying to care for unaltered felines can quickly become overwhelmed.

Authorities do not plan to press charges against the human hoarding these animals because they are cooperating. But they will make sure they do not get so overwhelmed with felines in the future.
