Be Careful Before you Take This Advice

Some of us felines love to have tummy rubs done by certain humans.  But there are lot of us who will show you our bellies, but we really don’t want to be touched there.

And if you’re a human who picks the wrong cat to do that to, you may find out wPet Me Maybehy we are such great hunters.  Our claws do rip skin and flesh efficiently although we normally don’t do it to humans we love.

I let my human give me a tummy rub, but he and I play rough with each other.  I will give him play bites, and since I know he is not going to hurt me, I will let him rub my stomach.  Jacey lets him do that, too.

What about your cats?  Do they let you give them tummy rubs?

A Lazy Sunday

Today has been just a lazy Sunday.  Jacey and I spent the day relaxing on the balcony, soaking up the Southern California sun.  Then we went over to our human’s bed and decided to lay down on it.  So much for him getting to use it, ha ha ha!Relaxing on the bed

My blood sugars were okay.  Last night, it was 238. This morning, it came in at 296.  So both of those are below that bad 300 number, even though the morning’s number was higher than we like.

I got five units of Levemir both last night and this morning.  We will see how my blood sugar is tonight, but we haven’t really had any real bad spikes or crashes.

So while it’s still fluctuating, and still higher than we’d like, it’s at a level where we can live with it.

Welcome!

Hello, everyone.  If I’m not the most connected diabetic cat out there, I think I’m close.  I have a page on Facebook, and a Twitter feed, and I decided to start a blog to let people know about diabetic cats like me and what challenges we face.

I will update you on what’s happening with me as I deal with the challenges that feline diabetes presents.  But regardless of those challenges, there is one thing you have to remember.

For the right human, who has the resources and the time to commit to taking care of a diabetic cat, we are just as happy, playful, and loving as any cat.  Just ask my human.  I love him and he loves me!

I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
