April 21 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 236, which is much higher than the 186 we saw the week before. It is too close to the level where complications start to occur long term.

You will remember that we changed my insulin doses because we were seeing readings where my blood sugar was lower than it should be. Now we are seeing glucose readings where they are too high. But we will stick with the new dosing program for another week or two. We need to see whether the higher readings will moderate after my body gets used to the dosing.

This is one of the challenges of having a diabetic cat. Still, it is not that bad. The human will figure it out.

And now, for something fun. Yesterday was Easter. On Easter, many humans think about rabbits. And one small feline had a rabbit on its mind, too!

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Until then, I hope you have as much fun as this small feline did with the rabbit!

Firefighters Save Cat Trapped Under Car Seat

Firefighters sometimes helps felines stuck in trees. And they will also help canines and felines stuck in hot cars. But it is unusual for them to help a feline stuck under a car seat.

That is what happened in Brockton, Massachusetts recently. A woman called the Animal Control Department to let them know her feline had managed to get wedged under the seat of her car. Now, furiends, this is a reminder of why it is a good idea to put us felines in carriers when we are being moved. You do not know if we will get startled and go hiding in a place where we get stuck.

This Poor Feline Was Trapped and Needed Help From Firefighters

Animal Control responded, and sent an officer to help. But the officer was not able to help free the feline. So the fire department came to help. When they looked at how the cat had managed to get trapped, they were surprised. It would have taken the feline a lot of work to get stuck that way.

And it took a lot of work to help the feline get free. But eventually, the firefighters were able to create enough room to free the feline. The feline’s human thanked them, and then everyone went on their way.

Hopefully, the next time that human takes their feline somewhere, they put them in a carrier!

April 14 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. The human is feeling much better today, which means I can put him to work telling you about my blood sugar readings. The human ate something that made him sick. He had to go to the white coated humans for IV fluids because he was dehydrated. They also gave him medicine so that he would not have to use the watery litter box as much.

Koji and I Felt This Way About the Human This Week

He still cannot nom normally, and he does not like this. But Koji and I are happy that he is feeling better. And we hope that he gets back to his normal self soon, so that we can annoy him.

Now, on to my blood sugar readings. For the week, they averaged 186. This is higher than what we saw last week, when they averaged 149. But remember, we adjusted my insulin dosing so that we would not see as many low readings.

It seems to have worked. Hopefully, my blood sugar levels will stabilize with the new dosing. I will tell you about them next week, assuming the human keeps getting better!
