Koji Almost Got One of These From Me

April 9 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, kind humans. Koji made the human very exasperated this morning, and I finally had enough. I told Koji to stop annoying the human. I hissed at him, and yelled at him, and threatened to swat him. It worked. Koji stopped trying to get into the cabinet and walked away. The human is glad that I helped because Koji was driving him up crazy!

I hope that Koji learns his lesson. It bothers me when Koji does things that annoy the human! It is not fun to see the human so frustrated. Do you think Koji does it just to see the human get angry?

Well, regardless of what Koji did, it is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 204. That is up from the 174 that we saw last week, but we are still not at a level where I have to worry about complications from diabetes.

We will have to make sure we keep an eye on things for a while, because we do not want a situation where my blood sugar levels get too high. This is the life of a diabetic cat and it is what can make things challenging for the humans who care for us.

I am not worried, though. I know the human will continue to work hard to take care of me. He promised to do this when I was a tiny mitten kitten flying home with him. And he has kept this promise for 12 years. I know I am safe with the human.

He will keep my blood sugar levels managed as well as he can. And I will continue to let Koji know when he should stop doing things that annoy the human. This arrangement works for both of us!


Bagheera (1282 Posts)

Bagheera is a wonderful and loving cat who started off his life on the wrong foot. Literally. He is a polydactyl and since breed standard for bengals does not allow polydactylism, he was given to an animal rescue group. His human had just lost a dear feline friend, but he was fascinated by both the bengal breed and the polydactylism. So he flew up to see Bagheera, and fell in love. He took Bagheera home the same day and Bagheera didn't even let out a peep when he went on a noisy loud small airplane. Several years later, Bagheera had to endure another plane ride, but this time, it was on a big airplane. He moved with his human to San Diego. And he was all set to enjoy a life of soaking up the southern California sun but then something else got in the way. Bagheera was diagnosed with diabetes. This meant that he would have to overcome one more challenge. His diabetes is being treated with insulin and a low carb diet. He has gained back all the weight he lost and is the same active, happy, rambunctious cat that he was before his diagnosis. But he wants to help raise awareness of feline diabetes. He wants humans everywhere to realize that while diabetic cats require a little extra care and they cost more to keep healthy, they are loving and playful companions for the right humans!
