fuzzy little knucklehead

I haz one. 

I've had a migraine since around 3:00 Monday afternoon.  The cats have been clingier with me than usual--especially Shadow, who has been sleeping on me anytime I hold still long enough (like, most of the day every day since I got hit with the headache). 

Cricket is more of a hyperactive spaz.  She follows me around, crying, and stands up on her hind feet to put her front feet on my hip and headbutt my hand as I'm standing trying to remember what it was I was trying to do.

So, right now, I'm laying in the bedroom with the light off, working on my laptop,* and I suddenly have a cat.  A loudly complaining, whining cat who's spazzing in circles, rubbing the entire length of her body along my arm (going in circles, mind you), and pausing every little bit to chew gently on my wrist.

I think both cats can tell I've not been up to par, and are trying to help me feel better, each in her own unique way.

I say unique, but with Cricket, it's just weird.


*Oddly enough, the light from my laptop is the only light that DOESN'T send nasty, burning waves of stabbing pain through my head.

  1. Indeed they do know when we are feeling puny! Mine get more smoochy when I'm feeling bad too! Gotta love 'em!

    1. I do, even when Cricket starts drooling, and shakes cat saliva all over my laptop. My cats are wonderful (and absolutely superb mousers...though I do wish Shadow wouldn't keep using that to threaten the dog...).

  2. My cats are the same way. I can gauge how sick I really am by how many furballs are snuggled up to me when I wake up. Unfortunately, lately, they've been bringing the labrador with them, which greatly reduces the amount of usable space on the bed. Hope you feel better soon.

    1. I love all three of my fur balls, but one of them isn't allowed on the furniture.
