A kiss for luck

Max's profile photo from his shelter days



Last night, after I wrote the previous blog post boo-hooing about how crappy I felt, I was laying on the couch watching "Ever After" (hey, there wasn't much on). My cat Max made an appearance in the living room, which is not a common occurence. Even though I was surrounded by the Cat Patrol—a.k.a. Spanky and Adora—Max still managed to jump on the arm of the couch where I was resting my head. He purred and rubbed his head against my head, something he likes to do, especially when I'm doing laundry or bending over for some reason. After a few rubs he gently kissed me on the forehead, turned around, and walked away. It was so unexpected and cute that I had to smile, and my mood improved from then on.

Today I'm still not feeling so well, although not as bad as yesterday. But I feel a little rosier after getting a kiss for luck last night.

so sweet, I'm thinking of renaming Tony "fluffybutt" as he has decided to permanently attach himself to my side in this cold. Today it's 20 outside and it's supposed to get to 70 on Sunday. No wonder we stay sick.

I hope you feel better soon hon. I'll send extra warm wishes for luck too.

aww! I just remembered that I heard kinda old wives' tale (no doubt it's polish) anyway it was that cats help on pain... I don't know how it exactly works, something like your cat should lay on a soring place... I suppose it's kinda old... and it's more like the warm of the animal makes you more comfy
