July 23 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, kind humans. The human tells me it has been a hectic few days around here. There was some convention in town where a lot of people dress up as comic book characters, and go to see other humans talk. And many of them decided to visit a house panther who looks like Batcat.

Furiends, I know the human was working hard because the talking box started talking sooner than it normally does. Right around the time I liked to hop on the bed by the human and purr, it went off. I did not have the chance to give the human purr therapy as much.

Koji worried that the human was leaving for a while. I told Koji not to worry, since he took Jacey with him. Every night, Jacey would come back with the human. I knew the human was tired because he would plop down on the couch. I would join him and so would Koji, and we helped him relax.

The Human Did a Lot of This Last Week

The human kept good track of my blood sugar readings even though he worked very hard over the past week. For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 196. That is higher than what we saw the week before. Still, we do not mind these numbers too much. They are well below the level where complications can arise.

The human is more concerned about the hypoglycemic reading that we got. You see, while high blood sugar readings cause problems over time, low blood sugar readings can be dangerous immediately. And that is why we really have to watch them.

We will keep on working to keep my blood sugar levels where they belong. Even though the human was very tired, he stayed committed to making sure my blood sugar levels were okay. I think I will keep this human around. Is that a good idea, furiends?

July 9 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, kind humans. Did you have a good weekend? It was a hot one for us here, and that meant that Jacey, Koji, and I were not able to go on the balcony to work on our fur tans. Jacey is getting to spend time outside, although she does not like it. You see, furiends, she commutes between here and The Cat Cafe now.

During the day, she spends her time there showing humans who do not know about us bengal cats how fun we are. And at night, she comes home. She does not like the commute, and complains to the human the whole time. But once she arrives at her destination, she is a happy cat.

It is nice to see my sisfur, even if she spends all of her time in the bathroom. She is starting to tolerate Koji being in there with her more and more. And Koji is learning that he cannot bother her. He will go in there and meow loudly, trying to talk to her. She does not mind, unless he gets too close. If he does that, the human goes in, tells Koji to leave, and that is what Koji does.

And do you know what is the best part of it for me? As soon as Koji leaves, the human pets Jacey and she starts to meow happily and sometimes even purr!

Now, on to my blood sugar readings, furiends. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 175. This is much better than the 229 we saw last week. I think it is because I have been getting two insulin shots for about two weeks now, and that the higher levels we saw came from when the human was away. I only got one insulin shot a day instead of two when that happened.

Hopefully, this is a sign of where my blood sugar levels will be moving forward. I will let you know if that’s the case next week!

July 2 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, kind humans. The human said tomorrow is a holiday that is celebrated with fireworks around here. Jacey, Koji and I do not mind fireworks, but some felines and canines do not. We will laugh at the human if he goes and drinks those funny smelling things that make him more clumsy before he enjoys the fireworks.

We are glad the human was around all week this week. Koji wondered what happened to the human and got nervous. He was nice to the human who gave us noms, scooped our litter box, and gave me insulin. But he did not say a single thing to them. Koji is not the chatterbox that Jacey is, but he does like to talk to the human. And so do I. For us to be silent was very unusual.

Now that the human is here, though, we are back to talking. Sometimes, the human wishes we did not talk so much! And Koji is back to his rambunctious self. Sometimes, I wish he would calm down a little!

But you are wondering what happened with my blood sugar readings. For the week, they averaged 229. That is higher than the 208 that we saw last week. It is also higher than where we like to see things. The human worries that my blood sugar levels may go to a point where they can cause problems over the long term.

I reassured the human to ease his frustration. I reminded him that when he was away, I only got one insulin shot a day because the human taking care of me could not come by in the evening. And I told him that I trusted him. I know he will work hard to make sure my blood sugar levels do not get out of control.

But I gave the human a swat anyway. He needs a swat from time to time to make sure he stays in line! I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully, they will be lower!
