Human Rescuing Cat Requires Their Own Rescue

Furiends, it is not a surprise when a feline gets stuck in a tree. We felines are very good at climbing up trees. But because our claws only work one way, when we want to come back down, we have to lower ourselves to the ground backwards. And sometimes, we do not want to do this.

Kind humans who see felines stuck in trees naturally want to help. They do not want to see a feline suffer in the tree. But be careful, furiends. Or you can end up stuck in the tree yourself.

That is what happened to one human in Werrington, in the United Kingdom. Bella, who is a 13 week old feline, got stuck in a tree. She meowed for help, and one of her human’s visiting friends went to give it.

They were able to get up the tree and got the feline to trust them. But in getting up the tree, they got their foot stuck. So their friend called the firefighters, who arrived on the scene. “They tied a rope around the branch and three of them pulled the rope” to help the trapped human free their leg. “Then another fireman climbed up the ladder and helped her down.”

In the meantime, Bella decided she had enough of the tree. She climbed down the tree to the firefighters, “so they carried her down, too. It was a ridiculous situation, but Bella loved all the attention.”

“I’ve kept her inside ever since her adventure,” Bella’s human said.

I am glad everyone, feline and human, escaped harm in this situation. But Bella’s adventure reminds us that we felines should stay inside whenever possible. And if a feline escapes and needs help, firefighters said it is best to contact an animal rescue organization. They have the personnel and resources to help better than an individual human can.

February 18 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, furiends. The human tells me that many humans around here have the day off. And if you are one of the humans who are not working today, enjoy your day. Maybe it means you can spend more time with your four legged furiends. They may want to sit on your lap and purr or sleep by you.

Jacey, Koji and I will spend the day relaxing for you if you are not one of the humans who has the day off today. If you cannot do it, at least you will have felines you like do it for you. Koji got a head start on relaxing. Right now, he is curled up in his favorite spot right by the window.

Now, on to my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, they averaged 173. That’s lower than the week before, when they averaged 195. While that is good news, we had one time where my blood sugar levels were too low.  But that morning, I was very demanding and yelled at the human to give me noms as soon as the talking box started talking.

However, around that time, the human noticed that I was having a loose and very smelly stool. Furiends, you know that feline stools are typical much harder than human ones. When my blood sugar level dropped, mine was almost like a human one.

The human thinks that maybe I had a digestive issue and that is what caused my glucose levels to drop. After all, if I do not want to nom because my stomach hurts, it only makes sense that my blood sugar would drop.

But do not worry, furiends. The human will keep track of my blood sugar and make sure it stays under control. I will let you know how it goes next week.

Rescued Feline Helps Human at Work

Many humans decide they want to help a feline. This is good for both the human and the feline. The feline gets a home. And the human gets a furiend that keeps them company and makes them happy. The human also enjoys the health benefits that come with having a feline in their life.

One human decided that they wanted their feline to share these benefits with humans they work with. And that is how Betty Boo ended up working at a human’s hair salon. Betty Boo enjoys being around humans, which makes this a good environment for her. She loves showing affection to humans, even ones she does not know very well.

Going to a hair salon can be something that humans do not like. But Betty Boo does her part to make sure the experience is more enjoyable. She gives lots of cuddles to every human who visits the salon, and she often hops into the lap of the humans in the salon.

Betty will walk over to humans who are waiting for service, and greet them. Sometimes, she will brush up against their legs and meow, asking for attention. Other times, she will hop into their laps and say hello.

Betty’s human set up the salon to make her happy. They put in lots of places for Betty to lounge in around the salon. But she prefers interacting with the humans there. Who needs a perch to sleep on when a human’s lap is available?

She loves to cuddle with humans visiting the salon, and she always makes them smile. Betty especially loves comforting humans getting their hair washed. After all, Betty thinks, it is not fun to get your head fur wet. So she does what she can to help make it more fun.

I am sure many humans look forward to their visit to Betty’s salon because they love seeing her. And she loves seeing them, too!
