Kitty cuddle therapy

It's been a difficult week for me. I've had the worst PMS/cramps/pain I've had in years this week. Then, yesterday I received some shocking news at work. A position is being eliminated and I'm absorbing the job, along with what I already do.

Tucker is a wonderful cat in that he's always sensed when I don't feel well or am sad. I went to read in bed and he was right by my side.







Cuddling with the cats reminds me that they live in the moment, and that moment is the most important one now. No matter how bad of a day I have, the cats will always love me. That's a comforting thing.

(((Hugs))) and purrs to you...and to the person at your work place who is losing his/her job. :-(

Well said. And I'm so sorry about the work garbage. That is so not right!!

Sorry you have work problems. One of my (favorite) jobs told me they were eliminating a job and absorbing it into another. Oops. That's right, ME gone. And I really liked that job best of any I ever worked!
In the first year the place went through 5 people in the "new position". Karma's a b*tch?
oh, and by the way, your kitties love you. Isn't it cool how they de-stress us? Purrs and cuddles make the world go away!

Excellent to have a cat as your nurse! Elliot was the one keeping a close eye on me earlier in the week.

Binga's the human-sensitive one here. She always knows who has had the worse day, my human or her boyfriend - and sleeps by the side of the one who needs it most.

HUGS! I hope the kitty therapy helps...Alice does that to me, and purrs her loudest when I'm at my lowest.

Our babies are so loyal and loving. They know when we need them the most. They are our angels sent from above. Take good care of Mommy, Tucker. She needs you. I just love his face.

Tucker is the best medicine. We hope you feel better and your job goes okay.

I know how that feels to have more work piled on you .. awful to say the least. And you are so lucky to have Tucker to support you!

I'm so sorry to hear of your health and job woes! That's quite a double whammy. Thank goodness for kitties, right? They always know when you need a snuggle.

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
