"I was home sick with sinus infection since Wednesday and feeling really crappy. The little ones are more playful each day but I wanted to stay away from them – I keep my own kids at bay when I’m sick.
Well no matter what I was doing, no one, not even Betsy listened (she is still a bit reserved towards everyone but I think this comes from protecting the little ones). As I lay on the couch listening to some music, Betsy at first sat beside the couch and kind of looked at me with question on her face “are you alright?” and when I spoke to her assuring her that everything will be fine, she jumped on top of my blanket and lied down on my legs. Soon after, Charlie (one of the kittens) started to climb up the couch- can you believe it ? - and after 2 attempts he made it and crawled right to my chest and fell asleep.
On Thursday, the scenario was similar only this time it was Charlie and Chelsea that kept me company and even though I have put them down several times they insisted on sleeping on the couch with me rather than with their siblings.
There is definitely lots of love in those little guys."
I could've probably skipped the entire email and just posted the last sentence. Yes, there's certainly a lot of love in those little guys! The little family was taking care of their foster Mom - instead of the other way around. Gratitude?
This email reminds me how intuitive our little furry friends can be. One of my cats went through my divorce with me almost 10 years ago and she never left my side. She still never leaves my side. I remember crying into her neck so the kids couldn't hear me.
Tomorrow, I'm going to the shelter. It's odd when I don't go on a Monday, but I was stuck in traffic court with my son, and a doctor's appointment for myself this afternoon. I couldn't quite squeeeeeeze it in. But I'm hopeful for a good rescue day tomorrow!
Would be happy to post a few of your "animal intution" stories....
