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.

    Expatraveler,
    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.
