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.
Hello, kind humans. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings. I know many of you are busy running around, getting ready for Christmas. The human got a package, and Koji and I investigated it. We wonder if it is our gift for Christmas, or as we prefer to call it, catmas. We will find out soon!
One thing that made me very merry was my blood sugar readings, furiends. For the week, they averaged 156. That is lower than the 170 that we saw last week. This is a solid number, and it means I am not anywhere close to being at risk of long term complications from my diabetes.
We did have two readings where the human could not give me any insulin. One of them was a reading that indicated hypoglycemia, but I nommed quickly and did not suffer any side effects.
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week next Monday. I know tomorrow is Christmas, so I hope you have a very Merry Christmas. Jacey, Koji and I will call it catmas, though.
Hopefully, your felines will not do this to the tree!
Good morning, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week.
If you have been following my blood sugar readings lately, you know that we were not happy with some of the fluctuations we saw. The overall average was higher than we like, but it was not dangerous. What we did not like was the big fluctuations we saw.
Furiends, this week was much better. For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 170. That is much lower than the 214 we saw last week. And what is even better is that we did not see anywhere near the same kind of fluctuations we saw the week before.
We did have one time where the human could not give me my insulin shot because it would have been risky. And of course, my blood sugar levels jumped without insulin. But even that was not too bad.
This made me a happy and relaxed cat. I may not have been as relaxed as some of the felines in the pet parade that took place around here over the weekend. But I was happy anyway.
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Let’s hope that they are a good Christmas, or catmas, present for me.
Hello, furiends. I apologize for not being able to tell you about my blood sugar readings yesterday. The human had to go in to work early, and he did not get a chance to help me tell you about them. But do not worry, furiends. Everything is okay.
Last week, my blood sugar levels averaged 214. That is higher than the week before, where they averaged 194. We missed two readings, however, because the human was away. Do not worry, though. I had kind humans staying here who gave me my insulin shot.
The human warned them against picking up me and Koji. He told them we would tolerate it for a little bit, but then we would get annoyed and they would not like it. They could not resist with Koji, but they were smart. When he started to squirm, trying to escape, they let him go. They did not even try with me, because after I saw what they did to Koji, I gave them a look that warned them not to try.
Koji and I enjoyed having other humans here, but we were glad when the human came back. I was less nervous than Koji, because I knew the human would come back. Koji was much more happy to see him, and he ran to the door and hugged the human’s leg when the human arrived.
Silly Koji. He needs to learn that the human will not give him up like his former humans did!
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully, they will be a little lower.
