Saturday Sickness

A cats work is never done. My mom was hit with a nasty stomach thingie. I don't know if it was something icky she ate or if she had a 24 hour bug. All I know is that she didn't feel good and she had an owie tummy.
I'm very sensitive about these things. I don't usually sleep with my mom. That job belongs to my momma Ellie and my sister Bennette. The second I knew something was up, it was time for me to take charge. I jumped up on the bed where my mom was complaining loudly and I burrowed under the covers and curled up in a ball right where her tummy is so I could purr away her pain. I knew I was doing good when she stopped fussing over her tummy and started fussing over me.

Don't try this at home, I'm a trained professional

My mom didn't get a picture of the whole thing, but this picture is a dramatization of what I did. You'll have to imagine the blankie covering me. Posted by Picasa

I stayed with my mom until dad got home. Then I let him take over.

Cory, you did such a wonderful thing taking care of your Mom until your Dad got home! Our Dad probably wouldn't take over ... hee hee! We like to lay on Momma to keep her warm when she is sickly! Please give hugs to your Mom from us!
Purrs and headbutts,

Yes! Good job with the, "I'll purr loudly and lay on you and everything will be all better" remedy!

Cory, good job taking care of your mom. We do that too when our mom isn't feeling well. Sometimes you just have to take care of the beans.

We know what it's like to have to take care of a Mama with an owie tummy. We hope your mommy is feeling better with you taking care of her.

Very good job you did. We think it's one of our most important jobs too - looking after the fragile humans when they are ill. We do it in shifts though.
