I think it is a prudent rule of thumb that if your pet, cat or dog, starts being VERY curious about a certain part of your body, to have it checked out.

Or at least wash off the bacon grease.

My cat Pumpkin,who is also a tabby,will lie at the foot of my bed when I’m sick (Which is hardly ever,knock wood) and stay with me all night.

Maybe I’m odd,but the scent of my cat is very comforting. I’ll lie down next to him while taking a nap.

Pumpkin and I aren’t THAT close,LOL. It’s just very comforting to have him nearby. He’s like a security blanket of sorts.

The other cat,a Manx named Leopold,likes to step on my back,purr in my ear,and sleep by my lower back.

He fell off my bed the other night. I was too far over and he didn’t have enough room. He then fell off the foot of my bed.

It was funny as hell.

I’m laughing while I type this. =D

Leo is all muscle,with a little flab. He loves to eat.

It takes a lot for him to hurt himself.

The dog,OTOH,has a thick skull. I mean thick. She’s a German Pointer so I guess that’s common for their breed.

If she had insisted to the docs that her cat was absolutely obsessed with her 24/7, she would have had her head examined much sooner.

Animals instincts never cease to amaze me. I had an old dog who had cataracts in both eyes.

On our daily walks if he was approached by another dog, they would sniff both his eyes.

My cat doesn’t like bacon but she does like the smell of soap and shampoo. When I come out of the shower she’s all over me, particularly my hair.

Sortof reminds me of Oscar the cat at a nursing home up in New England. He would start hanging around patients shortly before they passed away.

On one of the Judge shows the other day a women was being accused of not paying attention because she was driving with 12 cats in her car and getting in an accident.
She was doing pretty good in her defense (at least wasn’t coming across as a flaming idiot - says it was her daily routine) and had some backing till she said - “Well, since the accident the cats are traumitized” to which the Judge looked askance and rolled his eyes - the woman followed up with she was thinking of having to place them in therapy and, since she thought the other driver at fault, that she should pay for her cats therapy.
Rolling of eyes.
Case dismisssed.

Cat Group Therapy

“Muffin, do you have anything to contribute to the group?”

“Yes.....I had a very traumatic kittenhood.”

“How so?”

“My Mom never had any time for me.”

“Maybe that’s because you had eight other brothers and sisters in the same litter.”

“I could understand that, but she abandoned me for a ball of yarn! I hate sweaters!”

Could it be that the "attention" the cat was giving the owner's head, was not "detecting" the aneurysm, but was instead, the source of the aneurysm????

We've all seen them. Cats give off that "evil look" sometimes, so you never know........

You're simply telling them that you're submissive to them, if you try to ignore them. The reason that cats often seem to be attracted to people who aren't "cat people" is because when a cat looks and you, and you look away, in "cat language," you're telling them that they're the boss, and they'll come over to rub their forehead and cheek glands on you, marking you are theirs.

I think it is a prudent rule of thumb that if your pet, cat or dog, starts being VERY curious about a certain part of your body, to have it checked out.

It is established that cats and dogs can sense that there is something wrong. Dogs are currently being used to sniff out cancer

So right. My cat scan is now being conducted, with the practitioner standing on my desk and making it hard for me to type. The two canine practitioners, OTOH, are waiting outside to be let in from their morning run. One is an 85b lb. Ptador and the other is a 100 lb., and growing, Great Dane. The Dane does his work by leaning and butting, while the Pitador regularly bumps and pokes me with his snoot.
