So yesterday I unfortunately became incredibly ill with the flu. I was running a temp of over 102 and puking my guts out. When I get a fever that high I don’t really think that straight and somehow ended up laying on the bathroom floor to ‘get myself cooler’…ya know before the chills set in. Little did I know that my dog caught on that something was wrong with me and kept nudging me and whining. I felt terrible for him! It was only until my husband came home from work to check on me that he left my side. I felt so protected and loved. I never really had a pet that did that before. I owned a few cats that would love on me if I was crying, but if I was sick they were a far as they could be away from me.
So bee do your pets do anything out of the ordinary when your sick?
Here is a terrible picture that I took last night. Keep in mind I was on the bathroom floor sick with a fever.

Don’t really have any stories to share, or pets for that matter. Just wanted to say that’s soooo sweet and you’re lucky to be blessed with such a loving caring dog.

My cats will generally come and lay beside me, but funnily they don’t try to lay ON me, which they usually do. Smart kitties! I love that they keep me company when they know I’m unwell. I <3 my furbabies.

That’s sweet! My cat loves when I get sick because then I lay around all day, and the cuddly momma’s boy that he is can’t get enough of cuddling on top of his weak helpless mommy.

I am rarely sick! I attribute that in part to the cats – they bring such love and joy into my life. Miss Squeaky is a natural Reiki Master and routinely “works” my liver by very slowly and delibrately kneading that area.

Always. If I’m sick or upset both my kitties become very cuddly. I think maybe they’re worried for themselves lol. But it’s pretty amazing that they know something is wrong and they come to the rescue.
And actually, I was having stomach cramps the other day and my littlest started kneading my stomach area. It was heavenly and he rarely does that. The other is big and fat and he does it often usually to my discomfort 😉
Love for the furry friends!!!

I have RA. When it acts up my kitten is inseperable from me. Upsets my daughter because he wont play with her etc he just sticks to my side like glue.

My kitty will lay on me more often than usual if I’m not feeling well. Even if I’m stressing out she seems to know. I had minor surgery back in October and she was on me anytime I was sitting or laying down.

That is the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard! I’ve only ever had a cat that was a bit of a punk most of the time.

My cat stays very close to me when I’m sick too.

OH my goodness!! My dog cuddles up to me BIG time when i am not feeling well. Usually he is a terror (his nickname is monster) but when i am sick or down in the dumps its cuddle time in bed with him. Its weird how he knows….

Usually my cat follows me into the bathroom but when I’m sick I kick him out… so he’ll go and find a toy and kick it under the door to me!
It’s hilarious! I also end up laying on the bathroom floor to cool down – feels so good!

My dogs like to lay as close to me as possible when I’m not feeling well. Naps are a group activity.
My husband took this photo about 2 months ago; I was exhausted from a crazy work week and had just stretched on the couch when my little girl decided she wanted to nap with (aka, on top of) mommy.

I passed out once and my little guy was the one licking my face to try and wake me up. Nothing like a face covered in doggy drool to make you feel loved 😛
