Since Fanime I've been suffering from some pretty nasty asthma. Rainy weather makes my asthma act up and we've had rain every day for weeks. I wake up every night coughing and weezing for air. Being single and living alone this is scary.
However, my cat is taking care of me. I kid you not. She sleeps next to me every night all night. When I wake up she watches me and makes little noises like she's trying to comfort me. When I wake up in the morning she jumps on my legs and chats at me like she's happy to see me.
She even does things that annoy me to no end, but she means well. She is just a kitten and has always played with her toys at night. Everynight she sneaks out to the living room, finds one of her favorite toys and brings it to bed. She spends the night cleaning it or playing with it on the bed. This is VERY annoying, but if I throw the toy away she looks sad, but stays with me.
It makes me happy to have her here. I know I'm probably reading too much into instinct behavior from a cat. However, I feel like she cares and that makes me happy.
Here's a picture of my girl...just cause she's cute.
