December 10 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, kind humans. I am sorry the catputer was being difficult yesterday. It annoyed the human when this happened. I told him I would give the catputer some swats and that it would start to behave better. It seems to have worked!

Before I tell you about my blood sugar readings, I wanted to let you know about the wildfire that displaced many humans and animals near me. I have good news, furiends. All of the evacuation orders have been lifted. And the fire is now 60 percent contained. Firefighters still have work to do, but they have managed to mostly contain the fire to areas where no humans live. I am glad firefighters gained the upper hand on this blaze, furiends.

Now, on to my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 198, which is pretty much the same as the week before. That week, they averaged 202. The human and I both like blood sugar readings at this level. You see, they are not so low that I risk complications from hypoglycemia. But they are also not so high that I risk getting sick from too much sugar in my blood.

You probably saw that three blood tests are missing from this week’s chart. That is because the human went away for a day and a half. I did not mind it so much, because another nice human came in to feed me and Koji. But Koji was nervous. I do not blame him. He has been in many homes. So when the human does not come back at night, Koji gets nervous.

But I reassured Koji the human would be back. And the human who came to take care of us played with us a lot. We enjoyed it, and it helped Koji feel better.

Both of us felines greeted the human right when he walked in the door. Koji acted like a puppy cat for a while. It was very cute, and made me and the human laugh. And Koji did not mind, because the human came back!

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?
