July 8 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 will share with you a picture of my good furiend Anakin. Anakin, you see, was born without his hind legs and he did not have a pelvis.

But furiends, he does not let this slow him down. As his human says, he is full of love and life. And here is Anakin, relaxing in his favorite cat tree.

Anakin has come a long way from a tiny feline who escaped humans trying to help him. He learned to trust his human, and now he is happily living inside. And furiends, look at that fluffy tail of his. When I am annoyed, I do not think my tail gets as fluffy as Anakin’s tail is normally!

I am proud to call Anakin a furiend. He is another special needs cat who shows that while we may need more attention, we are very good at showing affection to the humans who care for us.

Now, on to my blood sugar readings. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 174. That is a little higher than the 161 we saw the week before, but it is still a good average. The human is a little concerned, though. We saw two blood sugar readings that were lower than we like. And then we had to skip my insulin shot.

On the occasions where my blood sugar was low, I nommed very quickly. And as you can see, my blood sugar went back up after I did that. But we still do not like seeing readings that low. The human does not know why this happens. Sometimes, it will be fine, but then sometimes, it drops too low. He will continue to monitor this and see what we can do.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Until then, remember that felines like me and Anakin, despite our special needs, can be very fun felines!

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!

July 1 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings. I understand that my furiends in Canada celebrated yesterday, and soon, humans here will celebrate Independence Day. Furiends, when you celebrate, remember, we felines often do not like the loud noises that fireworks bring.

Please remember to keep your felines, and canines if you have them, inside when there are fireworks. Many animals go missing when there are fireworks. We get scared and run away. Keeping us inside prevents this from happening.

Another thing you can do is to get your four legged furiends microchipped. Many animal welfare organizations offer free microchips for felines and canines. When we are chipped, a quick scan helps return us to our humans.

It is very quick and easy, furiends. Just a quick injection, and we are all set. I did not even notice when it was done to me and the human was very proud that I was not “very fractious.”

Now, on to my blood sugar readings. For the week, they averaged 161. This is down a little from last week, when they averaged 169. But these blood sugar levels are all good. They are not so low that they are dangerous. And they are not so high that they can cause problems over the long term.

There was one time where my blood sugar levels fell below a point where the human will give me insulin. But even that reading was not so low that it would be considered hypoglycemic. And as soon as the human gave me insulin again, my blood sugar levels returned to good levels.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings again next Monday. Furiends, I hope they will be good again!
