Did you ever have one of those days when you just felt down? That's how it was for me yesterday. It started with not enough sleep and my back hurting every time I moved. Added to that, I worried about difficulties that my friends and family were having. I tried several things to break the mood including counting my blessings, but the blahs persisted. So when I went home from work, I sought the best cure I know--my kitties.
My kitties think the world revolves around them, so I had no time to worry about myself when I got home. They met me at the door meowing loudly and demanding to be fed. However after they got full bellies, they were ready for a little purring and cat napping. I sat down on the couch and they started to arrive. First, Lucky got on my lap and began purring. And then Annie joined him there. Actually she ended up half off and half on my lap, but purred all the same. Next, Leo snuggled in by by my feet, and lastly Lucy couldn't be bothered to wake up from her nap in the dresser to join us. (Oh well, three out of four ain't bad.) After we all got settled in, I got a book and fell asleep while reading. Now, all was right with the world. There's nothing like kitty comfort.
