December 9 Blood Sugar Readings

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.

Koji and Me Relaxing

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.

December 2 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to update you on my blood sugar readings for the week. If you have been following my glucose levels, you know that we’ve had issues over the past week. Of course, the average is not so bad. But we do not like the big swings we have been seeing.

This week, my blood sugar readings behaved a little more. For the week, they averaged 195, which is lower than the 209 we saw last week. That means we are in the 100-200 range that the human likes to see. But one thing we did not like was how my blood sugar levels dropped to a point where I could not get insulin one day.

The good news is that after I nommed, even though I went without an insulin shot, my blood sugar levels did not go too high. They went higher than we like, but one shot and they were back under the levels that cause problems long term.

Hopefully this trend will continue and I will get my blood sugar levels back under better control.

Felines Venturing Outside Needed this Last Week

We had an interesting week last week beyond my blood sugar readings. It rained very hard one day, and the human had to close the windows to keep the inside from getting wet! We did not like this, because we like to smell what is going on outside.

But the human tells me that the rain is good for us, and that we need it. And Koji and I entertained ourselves by watching the rain fall. We do not get to see it too often.

We may see more rain this week, so Koji and I will have fun watching it. Hopefully my blood sugar readings will return to more stable levels, too.

November 25 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. You will remember that last week, I told you that my blood sugar readings were not cooperating with me and the human. Well, I am sad to say that that is still happening.

The average is not so bad. For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 209. That is down from the 219 they averaged the week before. Neither number is dangerous. But what is happening is that there isn’t any real consistency to my glucose levels.

My blood sugar dropped too low for me to get insulin three times. Naturally, without insulin, the next reading showed a big spike. We do not like this. We want my blood sugar to be more consistent.

I do not know why this is happening. But we will continue to try to get things under better control.

Now on to happier things. I understand many of you humans nommed on turkey last Thursday. The human did as well, and he brought some back. He put some of the leftovers in the refrigerator and ate them the next day.

The human does not like the skin, so he threw it away. And do you know what Koji decided to do?

Koji decided that since the human did not want the skin, he could eat it. I am afraid that he got this idea from me, furiends. You see, the human lets me help him clean his plate up after he is done. I lick the plate clean after there are no more human noms on it.

Koji Looking Innocent

Koji took it a little further. He opened the cabinet where the trash can was, and dragged the trash can out. Then he tipped it over and dug through the trash to get the skin.

The human was not happy about this, and told Koji to stop. He put the skin in our food dish, and we nommed on it.

That was fun, furiends. Well, except of the human getting annoyed at Koji.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully, they will be more consistent!
