Monkey may also be confused by your late nights...staying awake with you makes her happy!

That's a very good point, PF. She runs around my room like a terror when I am on the computer, and then curls up on one of the extra chairs and sleeps, but if I get up for any reason, she follows me around. When I finally got an hour sleep this morning in my recliner, she was up on my lap cuddled up tight.

I am going to bed now (11 pm) as the doctor gave me some codeine cough syrup to try and knock me out. So we shall see how she does.

Thanks, Taxy, Dawg and PF!

Oh, and she did go and eat a few times after I wrote the first post.

We all know that our furry kids just know when we are sick and want to be at our side.

I once had a very uncuddly tomcat named Perseus. However, if having a cat cuddle you would make you feel better, he was there cuddling.

Animals just know when the world is not right. When the big earthquake in Northridge hit many years ago, a lot folks in California who had animals told stories of their pets acting very jittery and nervous. One woman who had a ranch said that her horses kept trying to get out of their paddock and refused to calm down. She had to put them in the barn with the door closed.

Another woman said when she was walking by a tree, all of a sudden all the birds in the tree flew into the air. At that moment she felt the earth moving and had to hold onto that tree.

I have been giving Shreddy a liquid pain reliever that I squirt into the side of his mouth with a syringe. Today, he was fascinated by the bottle and syringe while I was filling the syringe. He wouldn't let me put the syringe in the side of his mouth. Then he chomped on the end of the syringe and happily took his dose. There was a tiny bit left in the syringe that I squirted onto my hand. He licked it off my hand and then licked the syringe clean. I guess he can tell it's doing him good.

Unfortunately it's raining and he isn't getting his garden time today.

During WWII my mother lived in a little village about 5 miles from Derby which was a great railway centre and where there were factories making munitions, aircraft engines and other engineering factories and consequently Derby was a frequent bombing target. She lived on the edge of the village green where a local lady kept a flock of geese. Mum told me that she always knew when an air raid was imminent because the geese started making a fuss ten minutes before the air raid warning sirens started up!

Poor Smudge, she is just skin, fur and bones...the diabetes is getting the worst of her. She fights so hard to not get a shot that we have given up trying, much more traumatic for her and she was starting to hide from us. She seems to be happy enough, can still jump up and hums along when being petted. I'm keeping a close eye on her.

Oh, no. Hang in there, Smudge! This is not a good week for DC cats. I guess I would have a hard time giving medicine if it traumatizes her so much.
