When I navigated to the Flickr link I saw this picture:

Perfect - a cat.  It’s no secret that I own the cutest cat in the world (even if I am slightly biased).  I immediate thought my recent twitter conversation with Kewl Innovations in which we joked about the cool new buzzword diabetes #catvocate.  A smile immediately came to my face and I felt instantly lighter and happier.

Could I delve more deeply into this image?  Sure I could.  Could I come up with ways this picture represents serous diabetes issues?  Probably.  But today, I’m not going to do that.  Today, I’m going to stop with my silly little #catvocate joke.  It’s no secret that we have lots of silliness in the Diabetes Online Community, with jokes of unicorns and sprinkles and cupcakes (not sure that link will work, but if it does, it's awesome) and bacon and #duckfiabetes.  Diabetes is a tough disease that really doesn’t ever give us a break.  And I think some silly humor is the perfect way to cope with that!


  1. I agree that some silly humor is the best way to cope with this crazy disease. Please don't tell my cat that you think your cat is the cutest cat in the world. I tell my cat that she is. She would be highly insulted if she found out your cat really was the cutest cat in the world!

  2. I love it! Your post is purrrrfection!

  3. K.C. cheats. She's a tuxie, which gives her an unfair head start in the 'cute' department. And my city wants its initials back. :)

  4. I mean, she's alright. She's no #Bes but she's cute enough ;)
