All posts by Bagheera

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!

Scientists at Oregon State University decided to apply the same tests that had been conducted on canines and turtles to felines. They wanted to see if these tests would help clear up the reputation we Read more [...]

March 26 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, kind humans. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week in just a minute. Before I do that, I wanted to tell you about my sisfur Jacey and how she is doing. I talk to the human about her all the time, and he tells me she is doing well. She enjoys being at the human's work, and she gets to spend the day with the human. If the human does not pay attention to her, she will complain and eventually he does. She likes to sit by him when he is on the catputer, and sometimes, she Read more [...]

Jobs Cats Do for Humans

Furiends, with me telling you about the Blue Collar Cats program in Washington, DC a couple of days ago, I thought it would be fun to tell you about other jobs that felines do for humans. There is the obvious, where we keep rodents away from things you humans want to protect. That is why we came to you in the first place. But felines have also been good nocturnal guards. A bengal like me, Jacey, and Koji wandered through a toy warehouse in England. Humans there decided that she would make Read more [...]
