This is How Koji and I Felt This Morning

March 19 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings in a moment. Before I do that, I will tell you about how Koji drove the human crazy this morning.

The human had to go downstairs to get new blood sugar test strips. When he came back with that package and some other things in his hands, Koji decided to run out the door. Usually, Koji will run down the hall and stop, and wait for the human to come and pick him up. But today, Koji really wanted to play.

He ran down the hall and stopped, but then when the human came to him, he ran away again. He did this twice more, and the second time he stopped, he stopped at another apartment with the door slightly open and started to sniff inside there. The human did not like this and ran after Koji and told him to stop. Koji decided this would be a chance to run the other way.

It was quite amusing for me to see the human so annoyed and Koji so happy. Koji told me about it, and we both laughed.

Now on to more serious things. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 195. That is much better than the 236 we saw last week, and it is way below the level where problems will occur. I am glad that we were able to get those glucose readings down. Hopefully this is an indicator that we are back on our way to managing my blood sugar levels well.

I am glad to have a human who will work as hard as he needs to so that my blood sugar levels are well managed. After learning about so many humans who give up their cats for silly reasons, it makes me feel better to know I have one who will take care of me like he should!


Bagheera (1256 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!
