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.
Good morning, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. I will also tell you about some of the things that went on in the house this week.
My blood sugar readings made both me and the human a little nervous. The average for the week was 169, which is just fine. That’s a little higher than last week when they averaged 161. But that is not a big deal.
What made the human and me nervous was how my blood sugar readings dropped very low a couple of times last week. We had two readings where I was hypoglycemic. Both times, the human skipped my insulin shot. And naturally, my blood sugar levels spiked after that. We do not like these roller coaster blood sugar readings.
So while the overall average is okay, we will continue to monitor my glucose levels to see if we can figure out what makes them do this. We have been doing this for years and we still cannot figure it out.
Koji’s antics last night probably elevated the human’s blood sugar readings. He decided to do laps around the house. Normally, he only does it once or twice. But last night, he decided to do it many times. The human woke up when he heard Koji running around. And then he got mad when Koji knocked something down.
Furiends, the human did not have to scold Koji for knocking things down. Koji scared himself, and both the human and I laughed at his fluffy tail. But soon, Koji, the human, and I all calmed down and went back to sleep.
Do your felines run around the home in the middle of the night and wake you up? Share your stories about that with us.
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week, furiends. Hopefully I have more consistent readings for you.
Good morning, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. You can see me supervising the human here, making sure he tells you about them correctly.
For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 148. That is lower than the week before, where they averaged 161. But while it is lower, it is not anywhere near the point where I will become hypoglycemic. The human and I are not worried about it.
During the week, there were a few times where we had to reduce my insulin dose. But even with the reduced insulin doses, my blood sugar levels stayed under control.
I think this is why the white coated humans said their testing showed my blood sugar levels were well managed. Hopefully, this continues. I do not want to go on the blood sugar roller coaster again. I hear you humans like roller coasters, but it is not fun for me when my glucose levels do that.
Speaking of fun, do you know what Koji likes to do to the human? He likes to dart out the front door and go for a run. He is smart. Koji will only do this when the human’s hands are full. If they are not, Koji knows he cannot do this because the human will get him.
We both get a laugh out of hearing the humans shout Koji’s name in an exasperated tone. And Koji will run down the hallway with his tail straight up in the air.
Koji annoys the human a lot when he does this. But the human calms down quickly. He is glad we do not live in a home where the entrance goes right outside. Koji would get in trouble!
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week, and hopefully, I will have more good news for you.
Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. You’ll remember that the human and I were worried a few weeks ago because my blood sugar levels were higher than we wanted. But then, my blood sugar readings went back to where we like them to be.
The human got worried one morning, when my blood sugar levels dropped to a point where I was slightly hypoglycemic. He did not give me any insulin that morning. I nommed a lot, and my glucose jumped very high that evening. But then we got it back under control.
That was not the only exciting thing that happened around here in the past week. We had a thunderstorm, furiends. I remember many of them when I lived with the human on the other side of the country. But Koji did not live with us then — he wasn’t even born yet! We listened to the rain hitting the window and the thunder. And we thought it was entertaining.
The human also finally got rid of the couch that we had in our home and replaced it. Furiends, it was funny to see the human struggling to move the couch. He bumped his hand on things a few times, and he was not happy. But eventually, he and another human were able to get the old couch out and a new one in.
Koji and I spent a lot of time sniffing the new couch, but we eventually decided we liked it. And we will make sure it smells like us.
Well, furiends, that is all for now. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week.
