The bug

I love a cat’s paws.  I think they are so sweet.

My five year old daughter is sick.  It all started yesterday with a headache and sore throat.  Last night, her body hurt and she had a fever.  I have called the doc.  She has an appointment later this afternoon.  I hope it is just a cold and not the flu which has been going around.

Emmie Cat has been letting my daughter snuggle with her more than usual.  I think Emmie knows Petite Clown doesn’t feel well and needs extra lovin’.

    As a lifelong cat owner, I hate to burst your bubble. But…

    Emmie Cat is likely taking advantage of two things:

    a) since your daughter doesn’t feel well, she probably isn’t moving much and makes a great pillow

    b) if your daughter has a slight fever, the bit of extra warmth just makes her use as a pillow that much more attractive to a cat

    But don’t tell your daughter! I remember it making me feel a little better when my cats “comforted me” when I was sick.

    Global Librarian,
    I am sure you are right. But, it has been nice to see my youngest daughter bond with the cat. Usually, Emmie Cat choices her older sister or brother to lay on.

    I hope you are feeling better. The doc said it is a virus that my daughter had. It sure made me feel better that it isn’t the flu even if she is still sick.
