November 5 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. I hope your weekend was better than the weekend Jacey, Koji, and I had. We are used to the talking box telling the human to get up and give us our noms. But for some reason, yesterday, the talking box did not do this like it should have. Instead, it waited an extra hour to do it. We did not like this, and we complained to the human about it.

Koji even hopped onto the counter to try to get to the noms before the human put them in their normal place. And then, do you know what he did? Normally, Koji will nom a little, and then wander around the house. Then he will come back for more. Yesterday, he stayed and nommed until he was full!

I do not understand why the talking box was late an hour. It was very annoying! I would swat it, but if I break it, the human might not get up and then we will get no noms.

This horrible incident does not seem to have affected my blood sugar levels too badly. For the week, they averaged 178. That is higher than the 149 we saw the week before. But it is still at a safe level. And most importantly, we did not see my blood sugar levels drop to a point where the human was worried I would get very sick.

You see, furiends, a low blood sugar level can make us felines get very sick very quickly. We can tolerate a high blood sugar level for much longer. So when the human sees me at levels that are hypoglycemic, he worries. And we did not see any of those this week.

I think it is the combination of giving us felines more noms and adjusting my insulin dose down when my blood sugar readings are lower than we like. The human will have to keep doing this but he does not mind because it keeps me healthy.
