June 5 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. Before I do that, I want to share a funny story about the human with you.

The human, Koji, and I were surprised when we learned that we felines had fleas. We are indoor cats, after all, and fleas are not something we would expect to get. Well, we got them. The human treated us, and we felines are doing much better. But the human is not so lucky.

The human changed the bedsheets yesterday. He did not know fleas were in there. Some of them got onto him. He did not like it at all! He knocked the fleas off his skin, and then swatted them with his hand. I do not know if he killed all the fleas he saw, but I think he felt better.

After getting treated for fleas, my blood sugar levels have climbed. This is not a surprise, furiends. After all, with those annoying creatures sucking my blood, it is not a surprise that I had a lower blood sugar level. And the human thinks this may be why my blood sugar levels climbed this week.

For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 226. That is a lot higher than the 169 we saw last week. It is also too close to the 250 level where bad things may start to happen if my blood sugar remains there for a long time.

The human will keep my dosing at three units for another week, and we will see if my blood sugar levels drop a bit. If they do not, he will likely increase my insulin dose to 3.5 units. I do not like this, furiends. Knowing that I have a human who will help me makes me feel a lot better, though.

And next week, I will let you know what happens.

May 21 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, kind humans. It is time for you to tell me about my blood sugar readings. Before I do that, I will tell you about something funny that Koji did that made both me and the human laugh.

Both Koji and I like to lick the human’s plate when he is done nomming. Normally, this does not cause any problems. The human does not care, because he is done nomming. We tell him that we are helping him by putting our enzymes on the plate to help break down the leftover food. And, we remind him, when we do this, he does not have to worry about scraping the plate clean.

So the human allows us to do this, and we generally have fun doing it. But yesterday, poor Koji licked the plate ate the wrong time. The human ate a burrito, and he put hot sauce on it. I do not know why you humans like to do this, but he does. And Koji licked the plate clean but got a mouth full of hot sauce.

Koji realized what he had done, and then he started to drool. After he did that, he ran around the apartment, trying to get his mouth to cool down. Finally, he drank lots of water. Then he calmed down.

The human and I thought this was funny because it was not something that would really harm Koji. But it made him act like a very silly cat!

On to my blood sugar readings, furiends. For the week, they averaged 175, which is pretty much the same level as we saw last week. The white coated human said that we could try reducing my insulin dose back to three units, and we did that. We will see if that helps keep my blood sugar readings from going too low. That happened twice this week, and it scared the human.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully I with have another funny story to share with you!

Cats of Melbourne Turns to Humor To Adopt Out Cat

You humans can be silly sometimes. One example is how some of you are reluctant to adopt black cats. I do not know why this is true. I think that house panthers are great additions to the right home. But for some reason, there are many humans who do not want a black cat.

One cat rescue group in Melbourne, Australia, addressed this situation with humor. They want to get a feline named Mr. Biggles adopted, and they decided to use a humorous biography of this feline to do it.

They described this house panther as “an utter, utter, utter bastard” who is also a dictator and who will not accept not getting his way. They continued by saying “Mr. Biggles is a despot and dictator, he will let you know he is not happy, which is often because things are often just not up to his high standards. Mr Biggles likes his cuddles on his terms, and will sit in your lap when he decides it’s time. If the stroking is not up to his standards, he will nip you.”

Why did Cats of Melbourne do this? Because they decided that Mr. Biggles wasn’t for everyone. He needs a certain type of human to take him in, and the cat rescue group wants to make sure Mr. Biggles goes to a home with that kind of human.

Now, do not think that Mr. Biggles is not enjoying himself. His foster human says that he’s doing well, but that he needs a home of his own. And this human decided that it would be best to use humor to get his point across.

The profile for Mr. Biggles quickly rocketed to the most shared profile for Cats of Melbourne. However, despite all the sharing, he still needs a furever home. Hopefully, it does and Mr. Biggles goes home soon. And hopefully, you humans will realize that black cats are not bad luck, too!
