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.
Now at 15 years old, Biggles is doing well and has a great quality of life although he has the underlying conditions. His vets are extremely pleased with how well he has done over the last 3 years since the initial issues with his health.
Because of my diabetes and being a super senior, I have a senior blood panel and a fructosamine test done frequently. Waiting for the results to come back.
My heart was a little more “gallupy” than my last visit. But my blood pressure is good, though. Nothing bad like detached retinas. They looked in my eyes to make sure they looked okay. I didn't' like that.
Mom and Dad rewarded me with a small piece of cheese when I got home. I guess it was worth it.
