Pet-Peeves: being picked up when he does not want to be
Favorite Toy: Beak the Kiwi Bird
Favorite Nap Spot: On the back of the sofa
Favorite Food: chicken, turkey, Cheesy Poofs, cheese,smart food, pistacchio & corn muffins. Biggles is on a strict diet now that he has feline diabetes. He begs for all of the "bad" people food. But does not get any of it, only turkey baby food as a treat.
Skills: He can bat just about anything with pretty good force. He has very strong paws that he can also use to pull your hand or arm in for a little nibble.
Arrival Story: Born outside under our stairs. He came into our home in June, 1999.
Bio: Although he appears to be pretty cool, and is game for our torment, he really gets pretty mad at us. I guess it's a pride thing. Biggles has
got lots of "tude", which is what makes him such a "Cool Kat".
Biggles was diagnosed with Pancreatitis in August, 2011. Subsequently, he became Diabetic in September, 2011 as a result of his Pancreatitis. Through working closely with his vets, we are managing both diseases with some success. He has had many good days and the occassional challanging days.
I had my annual check on Friday to make sure I am doing okay with my diabetes and pancreatitis.
I got a big gold star (yeah..I love that color) and Mom and Dad got one too for taking such good care of me.
I have gained back the weight that I lost when I was really sick. My coat is healthy and my weak back legs have become strong again.
I couldn't jump on the counter for almost an entire year because my back legs weren't strong enough. I am back to jumping whenever I want to.
I am waiting to hear if my kidneys look good. They took a test to see my values since we hadn't had that checked in a while. My heart still has a little gallop. But it isn't any worse then it was before. I do have a little gingivitis. So I am going to have to have my teeth brushed a little more often. I like the salmon flavored toothpaste. I don't like the rubber toothbrush.
Hope everyone is staying cool and enjoying the summer !!
