I have two pets, a dog named Mason and a cat named Spaz. My daughter named him Lucky, but I call him Spaz because he flips out randomly. He’s rather skittish so it makes moments of unplanned entertainment.
Last night, I had one of those random headaches that borders on a migraine. It doesn’t incapacitate me, just makes me feel miserable. I don’t like to take medications so when these headaches get to the point I’m more than annoyed, I will take some pills for relief.
When Spaz wants attention, he literally forces himself on me. I can’t tell you how many times he’s jumped on the desk when I’m on a skype meeting and bat at the microphone on my headset or just lay in front of the keyboard. While lying in bed, he likes to sit next to my head and either lick my hair or bat me on the nose. It wouldn’t be so bad if he wouldn’t extend his claws.
For whatever reason, pets recognize when you’re not feeling well. Last night, he decided to just lay next to me. I stroked his back and side and he just purred. It was a nice he chose not to engage in his usual antics. The pain was slowly subsiding before I fell asleep.
This morning, I awoke and he was still there. He must’ve sensed I was feeling better and proceeded to sit next to my head and bat me on the nose. Gotta love ’em.
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
