This is something very odd, but I just had to share. Its a gross/funny sort of diabetes moment. Its only possible because circumstances require me to use a glucose meter on a regular basis.
I have two cats that keep the clutter in my house to a minimum. When I am thinking about getting rid of something but am undecided, one of them will knock it off the shelf or the table, causing it to crash to the floor and break. What doesnt go crashing to the floor, the other marks with urine. These items then end up in the trash for obvious reasons, especially since I was considering getting rid of them anyway. These guys don't "pussy foot" around. Its black or white, no gray area.
So, what is the message when Naughty cat #2 starts peeing on my glucose meter? I'm hoping its a sign that soon there will be a divine intervention and I am no longer going to need it ;) (yeah, right)
Until then I will keep testing regularly and apologize to my dr. about my tracking sheets smelling a bit off. And I am going to look for a new case and behavior modification for the feline.
Just a moment of strangeness that makes me shake my head while keeping the journey for good numbers interesting.
(No comments/advice from cat haters please. I am not getting rid of the cat. I prefer ditching the meter.)
