July 16 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. First, I will tell you about something that amused me and Koji. One of us was bad, and we knocked down the toilet paper holder. The human was not happy about this. But he knew he had to put it back into the wall.

The Human Could Have Used Some Feline Help

Koji and I saw him go into the tool box, and we decided to observe. The human started off the job off easily. He measured the spacing for the holes and leveled things off. But then he could not get the fasteners into the wall. And he got more and more annoyed.

Eventually, he stopped trying to use those fasteners and used the ones that came out of the wall in the first place. You will not be surprised to learn this made the human very frustrated. He said many words that I will not repeat to you.

And Koji and I were silently snickering the entire time. This probably was good for my blood sugar readings, but it was not good for the human!

On to my blood sugar readings for the week. They averaged 184 this week, which is up a little from the 174 we saw last week. While the numbers are a little higher, they are still at a safe level. The individual readings were also good news. None of them were so low that they would be considered hypoglycemic.

We did have one reading where the human did not want to risk giving me insulin. That reading was lower than we want. But it was still above the level considered to be hypoglycemic.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week next Monday. And maybe I will get to snicker at the human some more. If I do, I will be sure to tell you about that. He will not be happy, but Koji and I will be!

 

Feline Who Lived for 11 Years Outdoors Finds Home

Felines who live outside have a tough and often short life. We felines who spend our time inside live an average of 15 years. Those who live outside average around five. Outdoor felines are at risk from predators, cars, poisons used to kill other animals, and evil humans. It is a tough life, furiends.

Teddy survived for 11 years on the street, but he got very sick. Because he got sick, kind humans took him to the white coated humans. When he got there, everyone feared the worst. They were sure Teddy would end up leaving us.

Teddy was suffering from a very advanced case of plasma cell pododermatitis. It caused his paws to be very sore, and Teddy could not get around very well because of this. The white coated humans gave him medicine, and one human agreed to take this battle scarred outdoor cat home to treat him.

The first few days for Teddy were rough. Even though he was sick, he did not want to take his medicines and fought his human every time. After about a week, though, he stopped fighting so much and started to get better. The white coated humans were amazed with his progress.

Teddy started to gain weight, and he also started to trust his humans. He started to wander outside of the room set aside for him. And he discovered a bed which he liked. He even started to enjoy getting pets and chin scratches!

It took a long time before Teddy gained enough confidence and trust to start to explore the entire house. But eventually, he did. And now, he likes to hop onto the bed where his humans sleep. Teddy is very grateful to these humans for what they did to help him, and he loves spending time with them.

Kind humans gave an old feral cat a chance, even though he was close to death. He survived and now he will enjoy the rest of his life with humans he loves.

Abused Feline Gets Help to Thrive

Furiends, one of the reasons I tell kind humans to keep their felines inside is because of the potential of animal abuse. Just think about what evil humans did to my good furiend Lucky. Lucky got help from Homeless Animals Rescue Team, and now he enjoys his life inside.

A feline in Seattle shares a similar story. She, too, endured abuse from evil humans but will get a chance to thrive. The kind humans there call this feline Courage.

Courage is around seven years old, and she has been through a lot. The kind human who cares for a feral colony said that Courage disappeared for a while, and then returned bleeding from some wounds. Fortunately for Courage, the kind human gave her first aid for her wounds. Then, they contacted Seattle Area Feline Rescue to get her more help.

“She’s very friendly and trusting. She can’t help but purr when you pet her,” said one of the humans at Seattle Area Feline Rescue. Sadly, an evil human betrayed this trust. They took advantage of Courage’s trust to abuse her.

Now, Courage is getting help for her medical conditions. And she has a bunch of them in addition to the obvious ones from her abuse. She needs to gain weight. Then, the white coated humans need to give her a thorough dental and pull some teeth. And because her ears were cut off, she developed ear infections. There also may be some issues with her eyes. And she needs to be spayed.

Courage gets eight different medications a day from her foster human. These will help her recover, and after she does, the white coated humans will spay her.

Despite her abuse, Courage is a fortunate feline. Kind humans helped her right away, and now she will get a chance to thrive thanks to Seattle Area Feline Rescue. Some humans who heard her story already expressed interest in adopting her. Soon, Courage will go to a good home!
