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. Today I am a happy feline. I hopped up onto the bed about an hour before the talking box started to talk. And even though the human woke up briefly, he went back to sleep. I got to spend about an hour snuggling with the human. Then, after the talking box started to talk, I got my noms!
That is a good way to start the morning. And today, the sun is out. Koji and I initially wanted to go on the balcony to work on our fur tans, but we decided it was too chilly. So we decided to come back in and we will enjoy sun puddles while staying warm inside.
Now that I have told you about my morning, I will tell you about my blood sugar readings. For the week, they averaged 197. That is higher than the 183 we saw last week. But, there is a simple explanation. Everything was okay until Saturday evening, when my blood sugar levels dropped to a point where I could not get insulin.
Because of that, my glucose levels jumped. And when that happens, it takes a few shots to get things back to normal. It is annoying, but it is not too bad.
Well, I am off to join Koji in enjoying a sun puddle. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week.
Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. This week, we saw good blood sugar levels, although not as good as the week before. For the week, they averaged 182. The week before, they averaged 154.
Even though my blood sugar readings were higher this week, they’re still at a level where the human and I can relax. We were concerned about one reading, where I was in a hypoglycemic state. The human skipped my insulin shot, and my blood sugar recovered. Of course, without insulin, it went higher than we like. But then it got back to where we want it after a couple of shots.
And furiends, you should have seen me nom the morning where my blood sugar levels were low. I quickly ran to the dish and nommed like I had not been fed for a week! When the human pet me, I even made the om nom nom nom sound.
Now it is time for me to relax and enjoy sun puddles. I hope there are many warm sun puddles in your day, furiends!
Hello, kind humans. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings. I know many of you are busy running around, getting ready for Christmas. The human got a package, and Koji and I investigated it. We wonder if it is our gift for Christmas, or as we prefer to call it, catmas. We will find out soon!
One thing that made me very merry was my blood sugar readings, furiends. For the week, they averaged 156. That is lower than the 170 that we saw last week. This is a solid number, and it means I am not anywhere close to being at risk of long term complications from my diabetes.
We did have two readings where the human could not give me any insulin. One of them was a reading that indicated hypoglycemia, but I nommed quickly and did not suffer any side effects.
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week next Monday. I know tomorrow is Christmas, so I hope you have a very Merry Christmas. Jacey, Koji and I will call it catmas, though.
Hopefully, your felines will not do this to the tree!
