"Makes Me Smile" Monday

"I have felt cats rubbing their faces against mine, and touching my cheek with claws carefully sheathed.
These things, to me, are expressions of love."
- James Herriot -

Well, my little furry guys certainly expressed their love this past week, while Jack was out of town and I was enjoying vacation at home !!

Late last week, I ended up getting sick with some stomach issues . . . running from bedroom to bathroom every hour, all night long. And every trip I made, my boys came with me. They sat with me in the bathroom, and then climbed the stairs with me back to bed. When I finally stayed downstairs and camped out in Jack's office on the recliner, Marty slept in Jack's desk chair, while Leo curled up on the bathroom floor (as if awaiting my return !). After I moved to the living room couch for the rest of the morning, Leo snuggled in with me, while Marty fell asleep on the green overstuffed chair next to us. Our boys usually sleep upstairs on our bed for the most of the day, but not that day . . . they didn't let me out of their sight !!!

I've always been amazed by the intuition and instinct of cats . . . they always know when something's not right with their people, and they react in their own special cat ways.

My boys . . . they took such good care of me !!!

Happy (furry) Monday !!

Cute cats! It's lovely to think they hung around with you even when you were ill.
