October 8 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings and then I will tell you about a new toy the human has brought into the home. He is trying very hard to get Jacey, Koji, and me to play on it.

For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 158. This is much lower than last week, when they averaged 198. The only downside to this is that my blood sugar levels dropped way below where we want them to be a couple of time. When the human saw those readings, he did not give me any insulin. So of course that meant my glucose levels jumped very high.

I do not like this roller coaster of blood sugar readings, furiends. But the important thing is the average. And the average is quite good!

Speaking of roller coasters, the human got us a cat wheel! Jacey told us about this wheel, because she used one at The Cat Cafe. Furiends, she liked the wheel so much that when another feline used it, she peed on it!

But Koji and I are not quite as receptive to the wheel. The human has gotten Koji to get on there, and then the human turns the wheel. Koji will walk on the wheel for a minute or two, but when the human stops turning the wheel, Koji hops off.

I have investigated the wheel, but I do not like it as much as Koji does. The human is hopeful that Koji will start to play on it, and it will help him get rid of some of his energy! And then maybe if Koji does that, he will not be as interested in playing rough with me and Jacey.

Who knows, I may get on the wheel and it may help me keep my blood sugar levels where they belong. I will let you know about this next week, furiends!

September 24 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. Then I will share with you what the human wants to do for Jacey and Koji.

For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 237.  That is much higher than the 196 we saw the week before. And that is a lot closer to the level where bad things can occur if my blood sugar remains there for too long.

I do not know why my blood sugar levels jumped this week. But I do know that the human will monitor them and see what he can do to get them down. Hopefully I will have better news to report to you next week.

Now, on to what the human is thinking of doing for Jacey and Koji. The human saw some interesting carriers that he is thinking of getting. These carriers are backpacks, and they have a clear plastic dome so that the felines in them can see outside more easily.

The human thinks that if he gets this, Jacey and Koji can enjoy walks around the block with him. He has noticed that when Jacey goes on her daily commute, she hates it the most when the human is not touching her. When she can touch him, she does not complain as much. And that is why he thinks that Jacey would like being in this carrier better.

Koji never complained about being in a carrier, but the human thinks this will be better for him. And, he thinks it is a way for him to take Koji on walks. That way, Koji can see things that he does not normally see and it may calm him down a bit.

The human will not do this for me. I may go into the carrier every now and then, but he does not think that I will enjoy going for walks outside.

What do you kind humans think about this?

September 17 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, kind humans. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. I also have some good news about Jacey and Koji. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings first.

For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 196. This is pretty much the same as what we saw last week, when they averaged 201. My blood sugar readings seem to have stabilized. They clustered around 200 for several weeks. I would like to see them a little lower, but at this level, they are okay. They are not high enough for them to present a risk of me getting complications from diabetes.

The only thing that bothers me and the human about my blood sugar readings is that we have a few times where my blood sugar falls too low. We do not like this, but I nom a lot, and my glucose quickly recovers.

Now on to Jacey and Koji. You know that Jacey commutes to work with the human. When they arrive home, Koji and I go to greet them. And lately, when the human opens the carrier to let Jacey out, Koji will go over and sniff her. He sometimes grooms her a little, and when she hops out, Koji does not chase her.

Koji also goes into the bathroom, and talks to Jacey. Then, he often relaxes on the bath mat, which is right below the shelf the human put in for Jacey. Jacey does not yell at him, and she does not seem to mind when he is right below her.

Things are still not where we want them for my sisfur and brofur. Jacey does not like to come out of the bathroom, because she is afraid that Koji will ambush her. And I will not talk about how Koji annoys me. Sometimes, he gets me so mad that I swat at the human and pee on the floor!

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Hopefully they will be like this week’s or a little better!
