February 18 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, furiends. The human tells me that many humans around here have the day off. And if you are one of the humans who are not working today, enjoy your day. Maybe it means you can spend more time with your four legged furiends. They may want to sit on your lap and purr or sleep by you.

Jacey, Koji and I will spend the day relaxing for you if you are not one of the humans who has the day off today. If you cannot do it, at least you will have felines you like do it for you. Koji got a head start on relaxing. Right now, he is curled up in his favorite spot right by the window.

Now, on to my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, they averaged 173. That’s lower than the week before, when they averaged 195. While that is good news, we had one time where my blood sugar levels were too low.  But that morning, I was very demanding and yelled at the human to give me noms as soon as the talking box started talking.

However, around that time, the human noticed that I was having a loose and very smelly stool. Furiends, you know that feline stools are typical much harder than human ones. When my blood sugar level dropped, mine was almost like a human one.

The human thinks that maybe I had a digestive issue and that is what caused my glucose levels to drop. After all, if I do not want to nom because my stomach hurts, it only makes sense that my blood sugar would drop.

But do not worry, furiends. The human will keep track of my blood sugar and make sure it stays under control. I will let you know how it goes next week.

February 11 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. For much of the work week, it is likely that I will not be able to work on my fur tan. The human tells me that we need the rain, so I will tolerate it. But Jacey, Koji and I do not like it when we cannot enjoy sun puddles! We are southern California cats, after all. And we must work on our fur tans!

But then the human told us that if we do not get enough rain, the catnip outside might not grow as well. And then we decided that we would tolerate a few days of rain in order to enjoy catnip. We felines are known for not wanting to wait for anything, but remember this. Our wild ancestors stalked their prey for a long time before pouncing. So we can do the same with the sun.

Now on to what I wanted to tell you about in the first place, my blood sugar readings. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 195. That is lower than last week, when they averaged 201. And it is way below the level where my blood sugar readings will cause issues if they stay that high for a long time.

We did have two incidents of my blood sugar dropping lower than we would like. Those were mornings where I demanded noms very loudly as soon as the talking box started to talk. And when the human saw my readings, he knew exactly why I demanded my noms. But we will take these blood sugar levels.

Hopefully, next week, I will be able to tell you about my blood sugar readings without having to tell you about how the human worried about a few of them. That would make me very happy, furiends!

February 4 Blood Sugar Readings

Furiends, I hope that you enjoyed your weekend! I especially hope that you had fun watching my good furiend Anakin and his brofur Mika in the Kitten Bowl! Their story is a very happy one, don’t you think?

The human tells me there was another game that took place yesterday, but I do not think that the humans involved in that game are as cute or inspiring as Anakin’s and Mika’s story. He did not get a chance to watch that game because he was busy taking care of felines. Then he made sure that other humans had fun during a cats on mats session!

And we felines are very good at showing humans how to do yoga properly. After all, even the least flexible feline routinely gets in poses that make even the best yogi amazed!

Now on to my blood sugar readings. You remember that we were very happy when they dropped below 200 last week. This week, they climbed above that number, but only slightly. My blood sugar levels averaged 201 last week. This is not a bad level, furiends, but it means that the human will have to keep a closer eye on things this week.

The human will definitely work hard this week to make sure my blood sugar levels stay where they should. He does not like it when they get too high. The human knows that if my blood sugar levels stay too high for too long, it can be very bad for me. I reassure him and let him know that I will help him as best I can. But I also remind him that I am the one who is enduring injections and ear sticks!

I will let you know about my blood sugar readings for the week next Monday. Hopefully I will be bringing good news to you! Enjoy your week, my furiends!
